Love and Care Centre

Chief Editor's picture

LOVE AND CARE CENTRE founded by Rwandan refugee, Aurelia Kaitesi in 2004

Masimphumelele is a community near Cape Town South Africa. The population includes many experiencing poverty, violence and lack of opportunity. There is little money to guarantee healthy food for the children each day. There is not affordable day-care and women are not able to work and care for their children. Love and care provides learning opportunities for the children as well as psycho-social care. Love and Care started after a women's leadership group in 2003. The women were asked to set up community initiatives. Love and Care was set up by Aurelia. She now has a community Board after being held by a trust. Parents are involved and there is lots of learning for everyone. Now the community owns Love and Care.

Serving the families of Masiphumele, Cape Town, South Africa with minimal cost child care for more than 12 years, with between 75 and 100 children every day. Love and Care is entering a new sustainable phase getting registered with Social Development, enabling the teachers to get paid regularly. They have certain requirements in order for this to happen ($16,000 is our goal) and we invite you to be part of their launch into sustainability.
