The Premier of the Eastern Cape, Phumulo Masualle and the Deputy Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform Candith Mashego Dlamini, will hand over a much needed structure to accommodate learners with special needs at the Emadlelweni Special Day Care Centre in Indwe near Komani on Wednesday.
The Emadlelweni Special Day Care Centre started operating in 2008 in the small rural town of Indwe, under the Emalahleni Local Municipality in the Chris Hani District Municipality.
The centre assists children between the ages of 1 to 18 years as well as disabled youth. It is designed to accommodate children with special needs and the structure will be used as part of the educational facilities. To this end, the Premier has engaged the Departments of Health and Social Development to find therapists and teachers trained for special schools. The Department of Rural Development and Land Reform has purchased the consumable structure as part of a collaborative approach by various government stakeholders.
