The Day Care Centre

The day care centre continues to be a great success. There are now 168 children who attend for 10 months of the year. Of these children 46 are sponsored via your donations. The centre continues to attract the more wealthy children as well and these are charged a greater fee to attend, enabling further income generation.
The 3 classrooms are full to capacity. The first classroom has the youngest children receiving care and basic education. The second classroom has older children who receive the Montessori style education and the third classroom is for the oldest children who receive more traditional education to prepare them for school.
Lunch- time caters for 86 children and this continues to delight; the children sit on the floor in rows and are handed out lunch, freshly cooked Injera with vegetables and Wat (a type of curry) washed down with a cup of water. All eaten with their fingers and once finished the children place bowls and cups in a larger bowl at the front of the class. No tantrums no sulks all done with huge smiles. Your donations pay for education, food and clothing when required. 
The cost for one child for a year in day care is about £50.00.
