WATCH: Farm school Wozanibone Secondary gets some care
KEEPING to the commitment to make every day a Mandela day the South African Pharmacy Council (SAPC) brought much needed supplies and caring to a farming community school east of Pretoria.
The council staff members led by the Registrar and CEO, Amos Masango, took to giving the Wozanibone Secondary school a much needed facelift and some TLC.
By painting security fences, classrooms and installing a fence around the school's feeding scheme garden.
They also donated sanitary towels, toiletries, school shoes, stationary and food items for the school's learners.
Masango said as part of their ongoing commitment to uplift communities they had decided to adopt the school to be part of their social responsibility initiatives.
He said they had been engaging school and decided to amplify their work by bringing donations to help the school function better.
Speaking on the momentum of women's safety, Masango said often the focus was on the girl child when in fact it should be on socialisation and how boys were brought up.
"We need to groom the respect around the girl child and ensure boys don't grow up thinking they can do whatever they want to do in our families and communities."
"Mandela was a selfless leaders that supported education with the belief that it can take us out of poverty. So by ensuring the educational needs and barriers to education are removed we can move one step forward," Masango said.
