The Imbizo held on 1st August was organized by Hermanus Child and Family Welfare, the Overberg District Municipality, and Enlighten. This event is supported by the Mayoress, Mrs Beyleveldt.
The long-term objective is to establish home-based sites catering for small numbers of children in all informal settlements in the Overstrand. A Forum will be created for the regulation of pre-schooler sites of all kinds. The need for child-care amenities is huge, particularly in townships such as Zwelihle and Masakhane.
Guest-speakers were from the Departments of Social Development and Health, from the Centre for Early Childhood Development and from the Premier’s Office.
