Fifteen preschools in and around Kathu in the Northern Cape in South Africa, recently benefited from an extensive teacher training programme following a partnership with Shoprite.
One of these schools is Mpelege Pre-Primary in Sesheng, which Shirley Kalaine (56) founded in 1998.

Shoprite’s support of Mpelege included the fitting of new toilets and a kitchen as well as new windows and fresh paint inside and outside.

In the last financial year the retailer partnered with no fewer than 85 early childhood development (ECD) centres in South Africa. Support for these preschools include education and governance training, meals for more than 300 000 children as well as critical structural upgrades to their school buildings.

Last year her school received awards from the National Development Agency for the best ECD practitioner and best ECD centre in the Northern Cape. Shirley and her team were also recognised for their good work in 2012 when their school won a national prize for the best ECD centre in the Northern Cape.
