Ndavi Nokeri hands over R1m donation to ECD centres in Cape Town
The beautiful Miss SA Ndavi Nokeri kicked off the Spring season in Cape Town this week where she handed over a big donation to four early childhood development and special needs centres.
Over R1 million was donated by Sun International’s GrandWest who emphasised the importance of investing in children at such a young age.
Mervyn Naidoo, GrandWest’s general manager, spoke about the importance of involving the private sector when it comes to nurturing and developing the needs of little ones.
“To have a country of capable and responsible future citizens, the private sector has to get involved. The centres we have selected all strive to nurture and develop the social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs of the young children in their care.

“Unfortunately, like many child centres, they often lack the resources and infrastructure needed for the task. We are immensely proud of the difference we are making for youngsters at these centres,” said Naidoo.
The money was divided among four children’s centres, the Little Angels Educare in Wallacedene, WaterSprites Nursery School in Kensington, Autism Connect Learning Centre in Strandfontein, and Friends Daycare Centre in Maitland, IOL reports.
Each of the centres received much-needed upgrades such as new learning containers, kitchen and bathroom renovations and educational materials and resources.
