Good Morning Angels: Update from a school after some Angel intervention

Boitumelong Early Learning Centre in Alexandra - going strong after some Angel intervention

Jacaranda FM

BACKGROUND: In October last year, we met the inspirational Lunga Ncube, the owner of the Boitumelong Early Learning Centre in Alexandra Township. for many years. The school has long been a shining beacon of hope in the township. The school was founded by Lunga’s grandmother before her mother took over and now Lunga is the proud and passionate owner of the school. The school provides care and education to 92 children between the ages of 18 months to 6 years. Lunga’s mission is to: “Provide high-quality education, nutrition and support to the most disadvantaged children in Alexandra."

At the time, a friend and supporter of the school, Liz Senior reached out to Good Morning Angels to assist Lunga, after the perimeter wall of the school collapsed due to heavy rains. The school is privately run and funded, with only minor support from the state, and most parents and caregivers are not able to pay regular school fees. 

 Good Morning Angels assisted Lunga with the R 25 000 still needed at the time, to rebuild the wall.

Dear Angels,

There is an amazing school in Alexandra that I am helping. The owner of the school is Lunga. It is the Boitumelong Early Childhood Development Centre that was started by Lunga’s Grandmother, who passed it down to her mother. It is a private school, although they do get a little help from the government. The school cares for more than 90 children, between the ages of 18 months and 6 years. It is a township area and despite the poverty, Lunga gives these children the best possible care and education.

I’m working with Lunga to present Clamber Club classes at the school. She is so passionate and caring and such an inspiration. My reason for reaching out to you is because the perimeter wall around the school has fallen down due to the recent heavy rain in the area. It is going to cost them R25 000 to rebuild the wall - money they don’t have. I have assisted Lunga and the children during lockdown through an organisation that distributed food to the children, but they cannot help with this request. If 50 people could each help with R500 - the wall can be rebuilt!

I really hope that you would be able to assist Lunga and her beautiful children.

Thank you!

Liz Senior
