Ikhaya Trust Stellenbosch

We were witness to the most incredible work last week when we visited the Literacy Ikhaya Trust in Stellenbosch. We caught up with Adele and her team, and spent a very inspiring morning with them. 

The pre-school has a highly dedicated team working with 46 children from the local community. The children start at nearly three years of age, and the results they achieve are remarkable; we watched the tiniest children with such confidence and light shining from their beautiful faces. They are a  true credit to the love and care that they are given at the centre. Thank you so much for the heartwarming visit and the warmest of welcomes that we were given.

learn to read them
