In Setswana, kamogelo means “to welcome”. That’s our philosophy here – we welcome children, caregivers, and the community with open arms. Although the Kamogelo project is a part of the catholic commission, it caters children independent of religion. Addressing the complex needs of orphans and vulnerable children is a community effort. We work to provide the children a safe and stigma-free environment where they can grow physically, emotionally and intellectually.
As of the year of 2012, Kamogelo serves 90 children ages one through six in the day care program. Transport is provided to and from the centre. A certified teacher and a teaching assistant for each class plan curricula designed to prepare the students for primary school. Breakfast and lunch is served every day. The children’s physical and emotional wellbeing is integral to the Kamogelo mission. Our social worker provides psychosocial support to both student and their caregivers.
