As one of the leading tourism destinations in Bloemfontein, the Windmill Casino has purchased kitchen equipment for the Global Village Museum as part of their sustainable economic development initiative.

The kitchen includes a chest freezer, gas burner and cylinder, pots and utensils, and dishes valued at almost R20 000.

The motive is to generate funds by selling food to the public on selected days at the Global Village Museum.

The museum was opened in 2008 by Johannes Moshao in Grassland Phase 2, Bloemfontein, to capture the culture and history of South Africa. The museum promotes community development and community-based initiatives. Its mission is to embrace cultural diversity with a goal of nation-building and contribution towards economic activities.

The museum offers programmes relaying to food security, educational seminars, museum tours, environmental awareness, women and child abuse, cancer awareness and domestic violence.

“Windmill Casino is pleased to be able to support a fellow tourism operator. Moshao’s museum is a popular tourist attraction which has great cultural significance,” said the General Manager, Johan Oosthuizen.
