Early childhood development (ECD) infrastructure is one of the flagship projects of the Bank.
The DBSA sponsors an early childhood development programme, which includes educational infrastructure, comprising of modified shipping containers or prefabricated structures, and learning and playing equipment. The Bank proactively identified a need for ECD infrastructure at three schools in Sekhukhune, Limpopo, in consultation with the Provincial Department of Education. Engagements were held with the respective school principals, school governing bodies and parents of the three schools in the Province of Limpopo. In addition to classrooms, the centres comprise a fully equipped kitchen with a gas stove, fridge, sink and cabinets, a furnished sick bay and office with a table as well as safe ablution facilities, adapted for children with disabilities.
Three fully equipped ECDs handed over to schools in Sekhukhune, Limpopo by the MEC for Education and DBSA Group Executive for Infrastructure Delivery Division.
