Save Our Schools NPO celebrated Mandela Day by launching three separate Initiatives within the Bloekombos Community in Kraaifontein.
The three initatives were collaborated efforts with SOS partners, Grundfos, Munich Re & Mountain Falls.
Grundfos employees from the Cape Town office, donated their morning to initiating another sustainable water solution for the Bloekombos Community, as part of their Community Water Upliftment Project, by installing gutters and water tanks for rainwater harvesting at the Community Centre, which performs a central role within the area.
SOS and Partner Mountain Falls launched the ‘ZEROPET Recycling Initiative’ to learners at Masibambane Secondary School. Presentations and activations around the importance of Recycling were made to the learners in collaboration with Recycle 1st and PETCO, where for each skip of PET Plastic collected by the learners, a donation will be made for 1 x Grade 12 Bursary to keep as many learners in education. A sustainable and essential project which educates and rewards learners who get involved.
Another of SOS Partners, Munich Re joined the Madiba celebrations at Masibambane school by donating a huge cheque to the head of the school, Principle Rajan Naidoo. This substantial donation will be to upgrade the school Ablutions, an essential need at this time.
Celebrations at the school were made even more special by a visit and address by Executive Mayor Dan Plato, who relayed to the learners the importance of staying in Education and resisting the temptation of joining gangs.
