St. John’s Daycare is located in the heart of the informal settlement, Zenzele. One word to describe Zenzele would be… dirt. Surrounding the settlement are rubbish (trash) heaps and dusty, bumpy roads, and sparse fields. The rough settlement itself lacks greenery with only a few patches of grass or trees dotted around the large area. Therefore, we felt it was vital for the little children to be able to experience soft grass under their bare feet and enjoy the pleasure green grass can bring to one’s soul! We were therefore super excited to receive a very kind donation from one of our friends in California, who made our dream of grass for the Daycare a reality! Yay!
