NIVEA has been supporting the Thanda Centre since 2015.
At the NIVEA Thanda Centre, children not only receive a hot meal and participate in educational and stimulating programmes, but also find a place where they feel safe and are cared for. The centre hosts the only library and playground in the area, with its number one drawcard – the skate park!
NIVEA’s support over the years has ensured that children are properly nourished-alleviating the mental and physical burdens of food insecurity-so that they are able to learn and grow into healthy individuals. NIVEA has also supported the growth of the Early Childhood Development Programme, ensuring that children in the community are given fair and equal access to quality early learning opportunities. Their supports extends further to the After-school Educational programmes which are centred around an experiential, inter-disciplinary curriculum that builds strong educational foundations and five essential life skills: self-esteem, critical thinking, rebelliousness, empathy, and creativity.
