The Ubunye Challenge has helped install 5 new Edutainers in the rural Eastern Cape. The Edutainers provide safe and secure facilities for learning for young and vulnerable children.
The Edutainer is an instant classroom. It is an initiative of the Bright Kid Foundation made from a shipping container (12 square metres) with fitted windows and doors, insulated, electrified, furnished including ventilation systems. The container is delivered to a community and installed on prepared concrete foundations. Each Edutainer is stocked with carefully selected books, teaching aids and educational toys.
The Ubunye Foundation (the Ubunye Challenge's partner in the Eastern Cape) now manages 9 ECD sites in the Eastern Cape.
