A new opportunity to reach remote villages

Cotlands has spread its reach to 350 children living in remote rural villages in Mkhondo, Mpumalanga. The villages are surrounded by farms and forestry, and Cotlands has been included in an innovative pilot project to provide these children with much-needed services.
The initiative is spearheaded by Mondi and its strategic partners are Cotlands, TTN and the departments of health and social services. Our partners run a mobile health clinic, while our role is to set up play- based learning sessions at each stop that the clinic makes.
We’ve equipped a trailer with educational toys and games and hitched it behind the mobile clinic. As the clinic does its rounds, so too does our toy librarian, setting up learning sessions for children younger than five.
Thanks to our partners and donors for giving us the opportunity to join this exciting project. Together, we’re transforming early learning in isolated areas.
