Share This Post

On the 15 October, the Foundation handed over a durable and innovative water station and sanitation packs to Lot Phalatse Primary School in Hebron, outside Pretoria. On the 13 October and 20 October, we further hosted a tablets handover at Nomnekane and Diepsloot Primary School. All these projects are part of the COVID-19 relief interventions funded by Sasria.

These projects have benefitted 970 learners with COVID-19 relief interventions. The handover at Lot Phalatse included school stakeholders such as the Department of Health, Department of Social Development and South African Police Services who addressed learners about hygiene, health and safety. The day also included a keynote address by the HOD from the Department of Basic Education, Ms M.R Molapo and some fun by the traditional dancers from the school.

The tablets handover at Diepsloot Primary School included a visit by the funder who witness the learners appreciation of the 50 tablets and hygiene packs. We were also joined by the supplier of the tablets who took the learners through the server with preloaded content that the learners can access without an internet connection. At Nomnenkane, over 69 learners also received tablets with pre-loaded content.

On the 20th and 21st of October, the Foundation hosted a spectacles handover that benefited 288 learners. The spectacle handover was part of a broader Visual Support Programme funded by Merafe Resources, which screened over 2 900 learners. At the handover, learners attended with their parents who were jointly trained on how to take care of the spectacles.

Training was facilitated by Premier Optical whom conducted the screening and provided spectacles. Merafe Resources attended the handover at Boitekong Secondary School, whom addressed and motivated the learners as potential future bursary applicants and employees of Merafe Resources. Stakeholders at this event included HOD from the Department of Basic Education, Department of Social Development, Department of Health and South African Police Services.
