The 14 institutions that participated in the SATICA annual Eisteddfod 2017 at the Durban University of Technology held an outreach programme at Ebuhleni Crèche in KwaMashu over the weekend.
The crèche is home to children from disadvantaged families, with many parents who are unable to pay crèche fees. The crèche is run by members of the AEC Church in KwaMashu.
Every year SATICA participants dedicate themselves to participate in an outreach community project. Addressing his fellow peers and the educators at the crèche, Mzubanzi Nkitha, SATICA President, said it was their duty as society and future leaders to care for those who are less fortunate. “We must always remember that as public servants and future leaders, it is our primary responsibility to give back to society. It is our social responsibility as representatives of SATICA to give as much as we can,” said Nkitha.
The different institutions donated an amount of R2864 and groceries and other items valued at R1363.
The crèche also received a new vegetable garden. Executive member of Ebuhleni Crèche, Khokhile Kumzayo, said it was good to see young people showing love for the kids.
“We are so grateful and happy to see that our youth cares for the needy in our community. This donation will go a long way and we wish SATICA the best of years to come,” she said.
