The enrollment of 20 preschoolers to the first and only, brand-new crèche and pre-school in the rural village of Dambale, caused a whole lot of excitement.
Although the school-buildings were finished last year the process of getting a long list of basic equipment like tables, chairs, mattresses, cupboards and educational toys, got a boost, thanks to funding from Lather skincare and a German charity.
Johanna Mudau, the newly appointed principal, enrolled 20 toddlers so far. This opens up a whole new world with early childhood development for the children and the parents of Dambale.
We are happy to announce that the bright little school now has swings, a multicolored jungle gym, two slides and a sandpit. They also boast a clever, new concept that they call a ‘Damu’, a round structure, almost like a sandpit without sand, with benches where toddlers can discuss and debate important toddler affairs with peers in style!
