Yabonga’s first community project was offering training to women who were running backyard creches, but had no formal training to run an educare programme. We supported these creches with shipping containers which were converted into playrooms, outdoor play areas, and educational materials. Thandabantu Preschool in Khayelitsha accommodates 100 children aged one to six years old. A holistic approach to the development of the child is encouraged.
