DE DEUR - Midvaal’s Executive Mayor, Peter Teixeira, together with the MEC for Gauteng Department of Social Development, Mbali Hlophe, officially launched Kotulong Community Centre last week Friday. According to Teixeira the centre is a non-profit organization working with vulnerable children located in Meyerton. The new facility is based in De Deur and accommodates up to 60 children, creating 50 local jobs. Teixeira adds that the value is not just in the building itself, but in how the facility will serve as a centre and a home to bring the help this community needs. The new facility is 80% Solar powered, has a borehole to purify water for human consumption, offering sustainability with low maintenance, and features floor insulations and window glazing.
