Bloemfontein - South Africa
The scourge of poverty, illiteracy and inequality is a burden millions of children across South Africa face today. This is as a result of being denied the benefits and opportunities a good education offers. In January 2012, the Al-Imdaad Foundation, in an effort to make education more widely available and affordable had completed its fourth state of the art Early Childhood Development Centre (ECDC) in Mangaung, Bloemfontein, South Africa.
In South Africa similar centres have been established in Estcourt (Kwazulu Natal), Ladysmith (Kwazulu Natal), and Vlakfontein (Gauteng)
This centre was officially opened by the president of South Africa, Mr Jacob Zuma and will serve the education sector within the underprivileged communities of Mangaung, Bloemfontein.
The Al-Imdaad Foundation abides by the philosophy that educating a nation today will result in a brighter tomorrow.
