Building a brighter future at Sinomonde
The Aspen team in Port Elizabeth continued its partnership which was initiated in 2016 with Sinomonde Educare Centre in Missionvale.
We were impressed with the progress made at Sinomonde since our last visit and wanted to further assist the centre achieve their objective of educating and preparing meals for approximately 112 children aged between 6 months to 7 years old in the crime ridden community.
Leading up to Mandela Day, Aspen’s engineering team spent time refurbishing the building, painting the jungle gym and fixing the schools bathroom plumbing so that all children could have access to fully functioning toilets and wash basins.
Joy filled the school grounds when the enthusiastic Aspen team arrived to assist the engineering team and to handover the generous donations of educational toys, stationery and non-perishable goods, new outdoor signage and a container which will be used an additional classroom.
͞I would like to thank everyone at Aspen for their overwhelming support as this has opened many doors for Sinomonde. Since Aspen assisted us in 2016, the Department of Social Development came on board by providing much-needed grants for our children and the municipality is working on ways to assist us. We wouldn’t have achieved any of this if it wasn’t for Aspen,͟ expressed MamTshawe, owner of Sinomonde.
