NcedolwethuEdu-care Center was established in 1994 by Florence Dodovu and is
located in Mfuleni (near Blue Downs) in the Western Cape, South Africa.
Florence currently has 9 children living with her that have been abandoned.
She also runs an Edu-care Center for approximately 35 children
from the neighbourhood (from 7 am to 5 pm from Mondays to Fridays). Many of
the children rely on the Center for their only meal of the day.
In addition to
the abovementioned, at least 15 additional older children who are at
primary school in the morning attend the Center in the afternoons, again
many of whom rely on the Center for their only daily meal.
The Center aims
to achieve the following:
assist with preparing these 50 children for school; serve as a safe haven
while those who have parents/ relatives are out looking for employment and
provide them with daily meals.
