The Noncedo EduCare, in Mfuleni is a well run centre which caters for young black children between the ages of 1 month and 6 years of age. Pinky, the principal, and her staff have a heart for the young children in the community and are making a difference in their lives. Sadly with no extra funds to cover much needed maintenance, the building and grounds are starting to bear the brunt.
NEWKIDZ saw what they are doing and decided to come alongside them by upgrading their Centre so that Noncedo can move into the league that it deserves, which ultimately will have a positive repercussion on the children attending this centre.
On Friday the 22nd May 2009, a team from the Actuary Department of Old Mutual arrived in Mfuleni ready to change the appearance of Noncedo in just ONE day.
Despite the cold weather and threatening rain, the volunteers were in high spirit and after a cup of hot coffee everyone completed a chicken parade by picking up rubble and rubbish on the property before being divided into teams.
