The Langetulani Crèche was founded in March 2014 by a lady named Brenda with only 3 children enrolled at the time. Since then the little daycare has grown to 18 children ranging in age from 6 months to 5 years old. At the moment Lanetulani consists of one small classroom so most of their lessons will take place outside under a tree. The crèche provides basic meals and care to the children. Since the beginning of 2018 Royal Malewane has been involved with raising funds to help uplift Langetulani towards being a fully functioning crèche. Langetulani is however still in need of basic amenities such as running water, additional classrooms, a kitchen area and bathrooms.
