For the past year The Chaeli Campaign has been running an ECD centre to facilitate learning and development for 5 severely disabled children, 4 of whom have no functional language. There are however so many more kids who need, desire and deserve an education – and we have had to turn these children away as we do not have the space. When the house next door came onto the market, we put in an offer to purchase but now need to raise R2 million by 15th June to turn this dream into a reality. Our vision is an inclusive ECD which will accommodate both special needs and able-bodied children. This is an innovative idea but that’s what we do.
