CHEC supports Impact Day Care Centre

China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) has donated sports gear and other learning and training equipment to Impact Day Care Centre at Mbagala ward in Dar es Salaam.

CHEC’s Project Supervisor Mr Shan Jifeng said that the donation was part of supporting children’s access to learning through simple methods and was meant to benefit people who live or work near the Dar es Salaam Maritime Gateway Project (DMGP) II.

“We have chosen to offer support to this centre as one way of easing learning to children who are the future leaders and producers of this country.

“Also this solidifies Tanzania and China friendship which we have enjoyed through strong trade and bilateral ties,”

Mr Jifeng said, over the weekend during a soft handing-over ceremony.

According to CHEC, this was the beginning of the company’s plans to further support children’s education, especially at kindergarten and primary school levels, which the road are leading to development.

Some of the donated items include football, tennis, jumping ropes, learning boards and exercise books. Others were colour paints, puzzle blocks, drawing boards, letter threading and counting boards.

“These tools will help our children to learn by doing and playing, hence have them imparted with desired skills.

“We are grateful as this is happiness not only for Impact Day Care Centre but for Tanzania children,” Said Mr Goodbert Henry, the head of the centre.

He added that children want to learn by doing, by seeing, touching and hearing; hence, the donated items will cater to them all and support brain development as they prepare to join other learning levels.

The centre currently has about 41 children between the age of two and four years.
