How it all began
Ubunye Educare Centre was officially registered in 2005 by a group of Women in Business from Cape Town.
They registered the NPO in order to build a school in the impoverished township of Dunoon, Cape Town. The school focuses on grade R - foundational education of previously disadvantaged children.
The school was built early in 2007, accommodating the first 90 learners in three classrooms which were officially opened on the 19th September 2007 by the deputy head of Education in the Western Cape, Cameron Dugmore who supported our initiative. In 2008 the first grade R learners were taught by two qualified teachers and a teaching assistant who went on to qualify with the financial assistance of Ubunye.
Since then another classroom with 30 more learners has been added and two fully qualified teachers added to staff compliment. There are now 145 learners and a further waiting list of 40 learners who cannot be accommodated at present.
