For just R400 a month, you can enable a child to attend Ratanang Day Care Centre!

Lesedi la Batho's on-site early childhood development (ECD) centre provides essential early education, as well as three nutritional meals per day, for children in Mabopane from 3 months up to Grade R. This allows young mothers to finish their schooling, upskill themselves at our training facilities, or seek employment - enabling these needy families to become self-sustaining and breaking their cycle of poverty in the most sustainable way.

This crucial community service, the backbone and the reason for success of many of our other operations, is under threat of closing. To maintain our high standard of quality service for mothers who cannot yet afford even a partial monthly contribution due to their circumstances, we need your help to meet the expenses involved. We currently support 55 children, only 40% of whose mothers can afford to pay a portion of the monthly fee.

You can ensure the future of Ratanang and its precious children by sponsoring one child's monthly fee of R400! To make your contribution, click on the "Donate" button, and on the next page check the "Make this a monthly recurring donation" box to enable your automatic monthly contribution. 

In return, we will send you a letter from the child you sponsor bi-annually (June and December).

Lesedi la Batho is a registered NPO (124-599 NPO) and our finances are audited by KPMG annually. We offer Section 18a tax receipts to donors - making your contribution tax-deductible.
