The Leave No Young Child Behind (LNYCB) initiative aims to drive a significant improvement in the well-being of young children in Nkomazi, particularly in Wards 16 and 19, which were identified by government’s Comprehensive Rural Development Programme as being areas where communities needed focused intervention and support.
