PARTNERING with its host communities through social upliftment projects, is one of the cornerstones of Kumba Iron Ore, a business unit of Anglo American’s, success in creating a better tomorrow for the communities in which they operate.

Kolomela put smiles on the little faces of the children at the Da Nanny Day-care Centre in Boichoko, Postmasburg, recently when it handed over tables and chairs for the children, cooking pots and children’s cutlery and crockery.

Da Nanny Day Care, which currently has 43 children in its care, approached the Kolomela Mine for assistance describing their needs for the children and supporting this with pictures of the current conditions that the children have to learn in.

Hanna Diphoko, practitioner at Da Nanny, said: “We provide a day-care service to our community and from time to time depend on businesses for support on certain arising needs.

“We are very grateful to the Kolomela Mine for supporting us and showing that children are our future and are very important to us.”

Da Nanny Day-Care was founded in April 2008 and currently operates from a residential home in Boichoko.

The ideal future plan for the day-care centre is to have a proper facility built to accommodate the children’s needs better.

George Benjamin, the Kolomela Mine’s public affairs manager, said: “Education is one of Kumba Iron Ore’s key focus areas and we know that by understanding the needs of our children’s education, we can take real and meaningful steps to address them.”

The support from the Kolomela Mine to the day-care centre has positively contributed to the children’s learning environment, making it enjoyable for them. The day-care centre also renders its services during the school holidays to accommodate working parents
