Top: Ben Paine (Managing Director) and Jamie Paine (Head of Marketing & Retail) for Le Creuset South Africa, on a recent visit to Etafeni.
Le Creuset is as passionate about good food as we are about people—so we’re giving back the best way we know how.
As part of our corporate social responsibility initiatives, Le Creuset will provide the 85 children who attend the Etafeni‘s Early Childhood Development Centre (ECD) with breakfast, lunch and snacks for 5 days a week, over a period of 12 months. With nourishing daily meals taken care of, the Centre’s youngest and most vulnerable beneficiaries can get on with more important things like studying, and of course, playtime!
Etafeni Day Care Centre Trust is a registered NPO whose Early Childhood Development Centre provides an enriched environment to benefit the social, emotional, physical and cognitive development for children from the Nyanga area and surrounding informal settlements. Skilled, loving “mothers” create a home from home for children affected by HIV.
The Centre offers a spectrum of services, ranging from a preschool, a vegetable garden and nutrition programme, income-generating activities (beadwork and sewing), supervised homework and afterschool care, to mobile VCT and TB-screening, counselling, and much more.
