At LIV Cape Town we are passionate about Early Childhood Education.
The Bible says: Dedicate your children to God and point them in the way that they should go, and the values they’ve learned from you will be with them for life. (Prov22:6 TPT)
Many South African children are born-at-risk because of the country’s long history of crime and poverty. Early childhood experiences have lifelong impacts. We want to give children from disadvantaged families a fighting chance to succeed.
Just before Christmas of 2002, whilst living in London, we got our church friends to fill shoeboxes with gifts and practical items which was then sent to an orphanage in Eastern Europe.
Since then we have had a desire to care for orphaned and vulnerable children and whether we lived in England, Singapore or the UAE we always found a children’s organisation to support.
In 2016, after meeting Tich Smith at our church in Dubai, we decided it was time to leave the expat life behind to pursue what we believe is our calling. We relocated our family to Cape Town to join the LIV family.
Over the last 4 years we have done a variety of community projects which has been a fantastic learning ground for us. It was whilst doing Covid food relief work in Fisantekraal that the next steps for LIV Cape Town became clear.
LIV Cape Town is excited to announce that we have purchased a plot of land in Fisantekraal to build a beautiful Early Childhood Development Centre.
This will be constructed entirely from shipping containers and will take only 10 weeks to complete, starting in quarter three of 2021. Phase one will allow us to care for 120 children and employ 16 people from the local community.
We have the option to expand our school at a later stage which will double our reach.
A substantial fruit and vegetable garden will keep our school kitchen supplied with nutritious food and we will incorporate gardening into our curriculum.
Our carefully selected curricula presented in modern learning environments will give these children the best possible start in life.
We will provide employment and skills development through our social enterprises, which will also create additional income streams for our ECD.
Our aim is to raise R7 million by the 1st of July 2021.
