Twenty principals from Stellenbosch and surrounds received brand-new fire extinguishers and safety signage for their Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres on Friday.

Each classroom in every one of these crèches will now have its own fire extinguisher – helping to keep our children safe!

The hand-over took place at Amazink in Kayamandi on Friday after the principals completed an informative and hands-on financial training session hosted by Nedbank.

The donation was made possible thanks to Nedbank’s Proud of my Town fund. Training, crèche safety and nutrition are three of the focus areas of the fund in Stellenbosch and Paarl. The fund focuses on specific programmes that have been identified as critical issues in towns and neighbourhoods that form part of the bank’s broader Proud of my Town (PoMT) programme.
