BETHLEHEM. – The Tshepang Educare Trust has been nominated for the National Development Agency Competition.

They have been nominated for the best early childhood development programme for children and babies with disability. Tshepang will compete with two other centres from Limpopo and the Northern Cape at the event, which will be held in Cape Town on Tuesday (03/05).

Tshepang is a centre that deals with early childhood development. It was launched in 2015 with ten children. They have grown since then and now have 25 children.

Mathanapo Mbele (45), coordinator: Family Community Motivator and Special Needs Programme, said they were working with children with special needs.

“We got some of these kids from day-care centres. At one stage we went out to search for them in the location because some parents were locking them in the house without exposing them to the community,” she said.

She said the children came to the centre twice a week where they taught and played with them.

Mbele said she was confident that they were going to return home with the trophy because they believed in what they did.

“We have worked very hard to reach the final. We deserve something for that. The nomination means a lot to us. It shows us that we are still on the right track. We are calling on the community of the Dihlabeng Local Municipality to support us,” she pleaded.

The nomination means a lot to us. It shows us that we are still on the right track.

– Mathanapo Mbele
