Share This Post

Over the last six years the Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa (IDC), in partnership with the Adopt-a-School (AAS) Foundation, has invested over R102 million towards uplifting and supporting 30 schools throughout South Africa.

Recently the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) celebrated six fruitful years of partnership with Adopt-a-School Foundation and the Department of Education at a school launch in Bochum village, Limpopo and Matatiele, Eastern Cape.  The Limpopo launch took place in August at Phagamang Secondary School in attendance of MEC Ishmael Kgetjepe. A newly administration facility, science laboratory, renovated two classrooms and an ICT laboratory were handed over as part of the Whole School Development Project.

In Limpopo the partnership benefitted three additional schools in the province, namely, Glen Cowie High School, Tshivhase Secondary School and Vhufuli Primary School and the interventions include, two newly built science laboratories, classrooms, renovated ICT laboratories, an administration facility, strategic planning, leadership, governance and teambuilding workshops in all three schools and other critical curriculum support programmes to the value of R14 million.

In the Eastern Cape the launch took place at Zamokuhle Secondary school, celebrating IDC’s investment of over R20 million in upgrading facilities at five schools, including the construction of a library in honour of the Nelson Mandela 100-year centenary. The five Eastern Cape schools supported by the partnership were Siwali Secondary School in Lusikisiki, Zamokuhle Junior Secondary School, Maraizell Secondary School and Tholang High School in Matatiele, and Nkonkwana Primary School in Willowvale. All five schools received significant infrastructural support and training, including construction of 15 new classrooms, a library, a science lab, an administration facility, two ablution facilities and renovated nine structures – two science lab and six classrooms; and converted two classrooms into ICT centres.
