Sigagule Crèche

Royal Malewane

Foundation

Our mission to create meaningful change.

Since 2009 it has been our mission to create meaningful change in the lives of the children of the Sigagule Crèche, which is situated in the nearby village, 15kms from Royal Malewane. We felt it was important to develop the space so that the children could learn and have fun in a safe, stimulating and healthy environment. Sigagule Crèche started with only one small classroom, no running water on the property and primitive toilet facilities. They received a minimal grant from the government which provided basic day-care and meals for around 38 children.

In 2010 Royal Malewane implemented a teacher-training program for the staff at the crèche (as well as several other rural pre-schools in the immediate area), so that the children could receive an introductory education curriculum to prepare them for further schooling. The results have been amazing and the children have benefited immensely. Today Sigagule is a well-developed pre-school caring for around 100 children, Royal Malewane, together with the help of its generous guests, has ensured the addition of 4 classrooms, bathroom facilities, a kitchen and dining area, boreholes and two substantial vegetable gardens. We are continuously involved in making this a safe and developing educational facility for the children of Sigagule.
