Educare Center for abandoned & underprivileged children located in Mfuleni (near Blue Downs) in the

Ncendolethu Educare Center was established in 1994 by Florence Dodovu and is located in Mfuleni (near Blue Downs) in the Western Cape, South Africa. Florence currently has 9 children living with her that have been abandoned. She also runs an Edu-care Center for approximately 35 children from the neighbourhood (from 7 am to 5 pm from Mondays to Fridays). Many of the children rely on the Center for


I have such sad news. Florence who ran the educare centre in Mfuleni that I’ve supported for years passed away last night. She was the most amazing women. Her daughter will now run the school and have to take care of the children living there (Florence has been the only mother they’ve ever known) on her own and will need support.
If anyone can help with small donations (financial, food, clothes, toys) please let me know. It’s difficult for me to collect things from people and then go drop them off in Mfuleni on my own so financial donations are easier unless you can help me drop off things. Any help/ suppprt would be appreciated. Please contact me on 084 403 0874 or [email protected] if you can help.


Does anyone know who in CT would be willing to draft a will for free (or small amount) for Florence (who runs Ncedolwethu educate centre). She's not well and want a will so that the children living there are not kicked out one day when she passes way. Pretty please?! (Don't want a CNA one - need it done professionally)


Does anyone have a laptop to donate to Ncedolwethu? If yes please email me instead of posting here ([email protected]).
We have recently upgraded the Centre and now doing the finishing touches.
