As part of enabling partnership between PPC and its customers Patel Hardware and Quality Bricks, 200 pairs of shoes, bags and winter wool hoodies/ school socks have been donated to Marongwane Primary School in Bushbuckridge. Valued at R83 000 the school uniform will empower 200 disadvantaged learners to experience a better quality of life and empower them for the future.
As a 100% local company that provides 100% quality cement and materials, PPC’s ongoing engagement with the communities in which it operates has propelled the business to empower the community to experience a better quality of life. PPC remains optimistic about the opportunities that exist in the socio-economic landscape and our education system.
Ashley Mnisi, PPC Sales Consultant explained, “The donation is part of PPC’s drive to bring about meaningful and sustainable development. An educated community can make a positive influence on the welfare of a nation. It was really an honour for us as PPC to assist our young pupils, the future leaders of tomorrow, and we sincerely hope that our contribution is a small step to making an improvement in the lives of these young pupils.”
PPC has created improved access to life-changing skills and confidence through a partnership that has continued to enrich the lives of our future leaders.
Principal Mr. Malope at Marongwane Primary School “We welcome the donation as many parents could not afford the much-needed uniforms. This is a really kind gesture from PPC, Patel Hardware and Quality Bricks and now we can see the joy in the faces of the learners,” he said.
PPC’s 129-year experience within the community has made the business understand that by working together with the community, we are stronger. PPC’s commitment to empowering communities to experience a better quality of life is the reason it continues to seek out opportunities to inspire confidence and provide solutions that enable the nation to reach its potential.
