Jane Habermehl, an Early Years specialist teacher made links with a group of pre-schools in rural KwaZulu-Natal in September 2001. The Exmouth and Centocow Linking Association was formed on her return and over the years she has shared her knowledge of the pre-schools in South Africa and revisited the teachers on several occasions.

Her most recent visit was in October 2019.

As those who are supporting Jane and the projects are now from a wider area in Devon, The formal name of the Charity is now Devon Centocow Link.

Centocow is a small community of hamlets in the Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma Municipality of south west KwaZulu-Natal. It is centered on the Catholic mission and the hospital.
