In the past few weeks, we have had a record-breaking amount of creche upgrades. God has blessed us and is always involved in helping provide the funds and the manpower to make a difference in these teachers’ and children’s lives.
This is what happens at most upgrades: We arrive and clean out the class rooms, clean off anything from the walls, and then wash them. We then start painting the classrooms: dark color at the bottom and light color at the top. Murals get drawn on the walls and then people start painting with different colors. Ceilings get put up, and shelves and desks get built and installed. In the kitchen, shelves get installed and murals get painted on the walls.
Outside gets cleaned; balancing beams, tyres and jungle gums get installed and painted. If there is a cemented area, then we paint hopscotch on the floor too.
The teachers of the creches make delicious lunches for all the hard workers and we all enjoy lunch with them.
Below are a couple of photos of creches we have upgraded.
Our community centre in Tembisa, Aphiwe, also got a small upgrade. Since there is always some program running from the centre, finding a couple days when nothing was happening was a challenge. We went in and cleaned the whole place properly. We also repainted the walls & shelves and the garden was cleaned too.
