Background to Project

The major achievement for the Jasper Power company in 2021 was the construction completion of the Phuthanang Early Childhood Development Center (ECD), located in Danielskuil. This ECD project which Jasper had undertook to construct incorporates both ED and SED deliverables and is also in partnership with the Peace Humansrus Trust, who took ownership of the project on completion at the end of March 2021.

The ECD is operated by Phuthanang ECD, through a lease agreement with the Trust. Phuthanang ECD is an existing local ECD which moved from a garage facility to a well-equipped centre.

The project completion was delayed due to the Coronavirus lockdown experienced in our country so instead of being completed by the end of November 2020, it was completed at the end of March 2021. The ECD opened it’s doors to children on the 3rd of May 2021, with a total of 100 children being enrolled at the ECD by the end of January 2022.
