​Stellenbosch University's Centre for Learning Technologies (CLT) took under its wing the Siyanqoba Crèche suited at the heart of Kayamandi township, back in 2016. The relationship has grown tremendously over the past three years and CLT has been with the children for a series of yearly events such as Easter Parties, Mandela Days and Christmas Parties.

One of the highlights has been the replacement of the zinc material structure they had with a safer and warmer timber structure under the watchful year of the CLT Operations Manager Ms Zainab Suliman. The crèche houses about 55 children and they not only get monthly supplies and stationery from CLT, but they also get a dose of love and care from the entire team.

This year's 10th Mandela Day activities were held at the PlayZone in Durbanville. The children were treated to delicious meals, face painted and had a time of their lives in the joyriding sections. It was definitely more than 67mins, and… a day to remember!
