There is a passion for learning amongst the young people of South Africa – they deserve a fair deal. Without a decent education system a nation cannot prosper.
“I love working with young children and l am passionate with kids. I like to see them developed from a very young stage and have confidence to themselves. By working with ECD teachers and community we strive to fight poverty and create a safe and healthy environment for our leaders of tomorrow.”
“I am passionate about education and sharing knowledge with teachers and students as I had good mentors who shared their insights with me. I believe that ECD teachers are able to build good foundations if they understand what their roles are and feel confident about what they do.” Bonita loves to work alongside the passionate people of Starting Chance who set high standards and keep moving towards the improvement of Mfuleni ECD centres and education, which will affect the future of our children.
“My vision is to see children living a fearless life and I want to help and train teachers create a safe and healthy environment for children in the townships.” Noms works as a field worker for Starting Chance and is in the process of realising her vision as she supports and engages with teachers and children on the Starting Chance outings.
Born and bred in the Eastern Cape, the rest of my life has been in Cape Town and Zimbabwe, where I learnt to know and love the bush and all things nature. After obtaining a BA in Psychology and English at UCT, I became a computer programmer, a wife and mother, a PA, a PR Manager, a Project Manager, and on my return to Cape Town, worked at Bishops for a number of years before joining Cape for Kids where my love for nature, environmental education and children melded. A varied enough background to qualify me as a Jack of all trades! I have a son and a daughter and four beautiful and talented grandchildren.
Joined Cape 4 kids 5 years ago. Involved in all the different outings run by the company. Completed Early Childhood development training and have extensive experience working with children. Prior to joining Cape 4 kids had a privately owned Educare for 19yrs. Baking novelty cakes tops the 'what do you do for fun' list. Completed an advance baking course with Snowflake.
