The DoMore Bakery is #DoingMore for the young children of Hammarsdale! One of the brilliant DoMore co-ops in Hammarsdale, run by 3 leading ladies, is giving back to their community every month through the supply of freshly baked bread to 30 ECD Centres.
The parenting programme – in partnership with the @Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA) and the @Department of Social Development (DSD) – utilises the skills of 50 trained parent programme facilitators to conduct one on one sessions with parents and/or caregivers in their homes to encourage parental involvement in the early years and create awareness around their young child’s holistic development.
With lockdown restrictions easing in 2021, we are pleased to announce that the facilitators have recently undergone a refresher training course on the training package (conducted by DSD) and are resuming their work on the programme with the implementation of strict Covid-19 safety protocols to protect the parents and caregivers involved.
Partnering to support the ECD workforce! In order to guard against the collapse of ECD Centres in our project area's, we partnered with Ackermans and G.Fox to procure 100 additional starter kits (containing deep cleaning agents, temperature guns, gloves, soap, buckets, etc) to 100 ECD Centres. This was funded through the Ackermans in-store character mask campaign where every mask purchased raise R1 for these kits.
The principals of these Centres were provided with training (and “re-training”) on Covid-19 Standard Operating Procedures to equip them for reopening. These were distributed along with thousands of masks donated by PEP to keep the ECD workforce safe during their visits to young children.

Children in vulnerable communities often get their one substantial meal for the day at ECD programmes and with the closure of the Centres and playgroups, these meals were not available to them. In the community of Nkomazi alone, the DO MORE FOUNDATION worked with various organizations to ensure that there was some continuity in feeding children and their families during lockdown through the distribution of approximately 80 tons of DoMore porridge and other RCL FOODS products.
