Youth Day 2020

Nomsa is a passionate, driven and joyful woman living in the crime stricken neighbourhood of Delft where gang violence and abuse run rampant. Having grown up under difficult circumstances herself, Nomsa hopes that the story of how she started her educare will provide inspiration to young people who have faced similar challenges growing up. She believes that if you dream big and never give up, that you can achieve anything you set your mind to!

In 2015, Nomsa opened her preschool, Blessings Educare, with just 11 children. Today, she and her staff care for over 130 children every day. Blessings Educare is a beacon of hope to the children in Delft. Along with her preschool (prior to Covid-19), Nomsa runs an afterschool programme where youth find refuge until their parents would return home from work in the night.

We hope this message from Nomsa will inspire you to believe in the power of your dreams despite the difficult circumstances you may face.
