TİKA Shared the Joy of April 23rd with South African Children

The library and playground at the Baphumelele Children’s Home in South Africa were renovated by Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA). The project was inaugurated on April 23rd, accompanied by enthusiastic celebrations of children.

TİKA renewed and reopened the library and playground of the Baphumelele Children’s Home, which began its activities in 1989, in Cape Town.

Toys in the playground were harming children, and the library was out of use due to a leaking roof and its damaged electric system.

To ensure the children’s safety, TİKA took precautions by renovating walls of the playground and laying artificial turf on the ground. New playground toys and library furniture were provided, creating a more comfortable living space for the children. An area, where children can carry out their reading activities, was created by renewing the library’s roof and electrical system, as well as providing books an toys.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, the founder of Baphumelele Children’s Home, Rosie Mashale expressed her gratitude to Türkiye, emphasizing the importance of TİKA’s support. She also celebrated April 23rd, National Sovereignty and Children’s Day which was presented to the children of the world by Atatürk.

Türkiye’s Consul General to Cape Town, Sinan Yeşildağ expressed his satisfaction with presenting the playground and library to the children of Khayelitsha as a gift from the Turkish people on this special occasion, which was designated for children by Atatürk.
