Giving SA's children a brighter future
The Department of Social Development (DSD) is set to launch the Adopt-an-ECD campaign, which will give children in early childhood development centres a chance at a brighter future.
Individuals and companies are invited to step in to help the department make ECD a reality for more children in the country. Through the campaign, the department aims to increase resources for ECDs based in rural areas.
Early childhood development has been identified as the key to unlocking many barriers to education by laying a solid foundation in the early years of childhood.
Currently, more than one million children access ECD services throughout the country and government wants to reach more. The Adopt-an-ECD campaign is but one way of achieving this goal.
Interested individuals or organisations can get more information on ndacampaigns.co.za . The portal also allows people to register as donors and to make a financial contribution to the ECD of their choice.
The campaign is in partnership with the National Development Agency (NDA).
It will be launched by the Northern Cape MEC for Social Development, Tiny Chotelo, on Wednesday, 30 April at the Protea Hotel in Kimberly. – SAnews.gov.za
