Starting the crèche was the catalyst to the building of the Learning Centre. It was the idea which brought about Friends of Mutale establishing in Bennde Mutale and the idea which brought together the community to build the centre where they can now learn and pray. The centre now functions as a hub of the local community. It is a place that acts as school and a church as well as the location of the creche.
The crèche started enrolling children in February 2010. After a few hiccups and set-backs it has now come into its own.
The children’s day runs from 8:00 am to 1:30 pm and is taken up with ABC’s, numbers, playing with toys, outside play, and colouring in.
A feeding programme is offered every day at 10:30 am and consists of some of the following each day; rice, maize porridge, beans, various vegetables, soya, juice and fruit.
