When I was growing up my passion was working with children and my dream was to own an ECD Centre.
By coming to Mount Moriah few years back, I didn’t know God will make my dream reality.
Being here, we noticed a huge need of a proper ECD Centre where the child can get a proper foundation of education.
When Covid came, with lockdown, as you know, so many people lost their jobs and I am one of them.
We decided to make our dream reality not alone with some heroes behind the scenes: We would like to thank Edwin & Eloise Briggeman for their mentorship and support in so many ways.
We started with 3 children at the beginning of September 2020.
And currently, we have more than 40 children registered with us. Some of them are for after care.
