Near the town of Swakopmund lies Mondesa Township and beyond this, the so-called Democratic Resettlement Community (DRC).
In this rather orderly settlement families live in very basic conditions, with limited access to water and electricity and it is here that the Top Kids Kindergarten was first established.
Founded by local mother, Magreth, Top Kids provides a safe place of learning, fun and stimulation for over 30 pre-school children. Magreth's dream had been to move her home and nursery to a plot of land that has access to water and electricity and proper sanitation and we are thrilled that her dream has finally come true.
As part of a government resettlement scheme – and with much determination and perseverance on her part - Magreth eventually secured the land. This meant the go-ahead for a new building for Top Kids, which the Trust was delighted to fund. The running water and toilets are still a novelty for the children and we hope that this nursery, in its new location, will help provide them all with a brighter future.
