The Deputy President of the Republic of South Africa, Mr Cyril Ramaphosa will officially hand over state of the art Ramadimetja Sophia Mogotlane Early Childhood Development Centre at Mookgophong. The state of art facility will play a crucial part of a child's development and quality training in ensuring that a child is confident and ready for school.

To improve the health and wellbeing of children, through access to adequate nutrition and health services

To ensure that children are given age-appropriate computer skills development
