Ncedolwethu Edu-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.

Calling for donations to rebuild

students at Ncedolwethu.

In order to meet the Provincial Government of the Western Capeís Social Development Departmentís requirements, Ncedolwethu Educare Centreís existing corrugated iron classroom needs to be replaced with an appropriate brick structure by September 2013 in order to avoid being closed down.
