Ncedolwethu Educare

Brave Ocean Explorers

Under the "C"(Sea)123

Today fifteen Connect123 volunteers met the wonderful Nicolene and her adorable 25x kids at her Educare "Ncedolwethu" in Mfuleni.

We will be visiting them over the next weeks and every time we would like to "make some waves" with beautiful, informative crafts/songs/stories about our Mother Earth's magnificent ocean, its wildlife and how to keep it clean.

With the guidance of our terrific Connect123 volunteers the kiddies created fun beach scenes on paper plates. Stickers, thread, umbrellas, a "fishing rod" (popsicle stick) and a googley eyed fish adorn the plates. There was a whole lot of learning through play and fine motor skills were challenged.

Bonga our fantastic Activity Leader read a beautiful children's story to a very amused and captivated kiddies audience.
The book written in the isiXhosa language is entitled "Gcina Ulwandle Lucocekile" meaning "Keeping the beach clean". It was lovely being read to in their home language isiXhosa. The volunteers looked a little perplexed, but the book's colorful artwork assisted with the translations.

All in all the day ended "feeling' fin-tastic!"
