Quality Care and Education in the Koue Bokkeveld

August 2022

β€œIt is not beyond our power to create a world in which all children have access to a good education. Those who do not believe this have small imaginations.” - Nelson Mandela

We recently visited the Feetjieland partial care facility on Howbill farm in the Koue Bokkeveld with exporter partner Green Marketing and Ceres based grower Good Hope Fruit.

The passion, dedication and excellence of the team of partial care facilitators at Feetjieland are truly inspiring! From the play area outside and the beautiful decorations on the external walls to all the facilities inside – the attention to detail and genuine care are very evident. The children have access to a safe, clean and stimulating learning environment where they have the opportunity to grow and develop. Every facility like this on our partner farms across Southern Africa is truly a place of hope, creating a foundation for a better future through education.
