Creating opportunity to shape a successful future
Chartered Wealth’s project for 2014
Recognising the fact that so many children in South Africa do not have access to quality care and education, Chartered Wealth has become actively involved in changing the lives of a woman named Jane Sasa and the 40 children under her care.
Jane established a creche, named after her two children, in response to her need to create an income for her family following her retrenchment as a nursing assistant. The centre is attached to her house in Tsutsumani Village in Alexandra, and employs Jane and two child care
In collaboration with Anne Timms of Prettify your Township, and Brain Boosters, a specifically designed and accredited Early Childhood Development programme, Chartered Wealth is aiming to enable the creche, Tumi and Karabo, to become sustainable and to qualify for a grant.
The intention from Chartered’s perspective is twofold; raise the level of education provided to these children by sponsoring the implementation of an efficient early childhood development curriculum. Secondly, to attempt to source some of the outstanding capital items required in order for the crèche to operate profitably and therefore sustainably.
“Prettify your township”, under the guidance of social enterpreneur, Anne Timms, aims to create an environment where children from an early age can take pride in their community and have access to early childhood education. Prettify Your Township is about affecting positive, sustainable social change in our immediate surroundings and gifting creative thought leadership in transforming townships.
The project is beautifies the pre-schools by painting them in brightly coloured themes of wildlife, shapes, nature, and other artwork.
“We instil joy, fun, laughter, love and a sense of belonging, well-being, motivation and hope in the children. This provides a strong foundation in which education is the cornerstone,” says Anne.
