They are often searching the entire Township for work and hence have only little time to look after their children. To improve care and supervision for the children, sisters form the Good Shepherds Order are running a small kindergarten for more than 70 children. For more than 20 years they have already been providing medical care for the village.
The house has been given to the sisters from the local authorities. We want to create a place for the children where they feel happy and at ease and have the opportunity to learn besides reading and writing, how to interact with one and another in play, explains the committed Sister Joan Andrews, head sister of the Order. The childrens parents are also involved in the project since they take turns in helping with supervision and provide materials such as wood and bamboo for toys.
