Gagasi FM has adopted Nhlanhleni Primary School based in Mpophomeni – Howick.

Written by on 2 March, 2023

Miss Bongeka Mkhize is the Head of Grade 7 at the school and she wrote to Gagasi FM and nominated the school for Adopt A School 2023. The school toilets are not in a good condition and they are dangerous to the learners. Educators and learners are sharing 8 toilets with 556 learners and 15x educators. The toilets don’t have any proper doors that can open and close. The absence of basic sanitation facilities in the school has resulted in an unhealthy environment. The educators & learners don’t feel safe using the toilets. In 2022 four female educators were admitted to hospital due to infections from the toilets. Learners were infected by waterborne diseases and which lead to higher absenteeism. Gagasi FM had decided to answer Nhlanhleni Primary School’s cry for help. Thus we have adopted them for the 2023 academic year. Gagasi FM aims to leave Nhlanhleni Primary School better than we found it.
