The children and staff at the
Kutlwanong Children's Centre - part of Morning Star's ongoing initiatives
towards supporting the communities affected by HIV/AIDS in and around
Welkom, Free State.
Our Kutlwanong Satellite Centre continues to provide optimum care
for the 40+ children who attend on a daily basis.
9 staff members are currently employed at this site, 8 of whom
are women. The sole male, Vusi, is our Kutlwanong driver.
Our Kutlwanong Centre continues to function very well under the able management of Anna Matiyase who took over from her predecessor, Holygate Malunga after she died unexpectedly early in 2014.
There are 40 children at present, with 12 of them in Grade R with teacher, Zanele and the rest in pre-school and our Little Stars Toddler group
Our Kutlwanong Centre is like a haven in the desert and always a welcome sight to passers-by. Many a time children gaze through the bars of our fencing with longing eyes, wishing they could be part of the fun inside and have the opportunity to play on our wonderful outdoor equipment.
