The Dalton Education Trust (NPO No. 078-716 / PBO No. 930 034 579) was founded by ZuluWaters Game Reserve in 2008 as a way to give back to the surrounding communities of Dalton Bridge, Ezindikini and Mhubheni. It has a specific focus on Early Childhood Development, and aims to provide an intervention that addresses the current needs of the community, while also investing in the future of the area’s children.
Stimulation during their formative years is crucial for children because, if early needs are not met, there is a knock-on effect throughout their later development. A solid pre-school education is key for success, and provides the foundation for skills development as the child grows.
