Written by on 1 June, 2023

Yesterday marked a momentous occasion as we successfully under our Geleza Ne Gagasi #AdoptASchool initiative, partnered with the Hollywood Foundation to deliver a much-needed facility upgrade to Nhlanhleni Primary School in Howick. The joint effort aimed to address the inadequate sanitation facilities at the school, ensuring a healthier and more dignified learning environment for the kids. This collaborative initiative serves as a mark to the power of public-private partnerships in driving positive change within the Howick local community.

“Geleza Ne Gagasi is our CSI initiative that helps to alleviate the financial pressures that come with going back to school’’.

As this important handover commenced, The Uprising which is hosted by our very own Felix Hlophe and Minnie Ntuli broadcasted live from Nhlanhleni, with their adorable co-host’s, Yolanda and Kwandabathandwa, who we call [abashana]. Elevate Vodcast host, Khulekani Mbambo was the MC for the day. We then received a warm welcome by Nhlanhleni Primary School’s principal, followed by a Miss Bongeka Mkhize, a teacher at the school, who nominated Nhlanhleni for our #AdoptASchool initiative. Our Head of Commercial Hub, Pinky Mnyeni followed with an depth motivation to the kids, and she also stated why was it important of us to adopt Nhlanhleni Primary. Minnie Ntuli then increased the energy at the assembly, with a cheering song with a tagline “I’m somewhere in the future’’. Felix Hlophe then gathered us, next to the official handover section, together with the principal, and kids of Nhlanhleni Primary School. We then officially cut the ribbon, which was a reveal to the newly built toilets.

The Importance of Adequate Sanitation Facilities for Nhlanhleni Primary School:

We believe that having access to clean and functional sanitation facilities is essential for promoting hygiene, health, and overall well-being among the kids of Nhlanhleni Primary School. By addressing this pressing issue at Nhlanhleni Primary School, we and the Hollywood Foundation are championing the rights of children to receive quality, and a hygienic environment.

We didn’t arrive empty handed, kiddie’s refreshments were distributed among the kids, while a hearty meal was being prepared for the parents which attended this important handover, including teachers, and the kids.

This handover which we partnered with Hollywood Foundation we believe should be known for its commitment to community upliftment, because we recognized the urgent need for improved toilet facilities at Nhlanhleni Primary School. Overall, the atmosphere was filled with excitement, and gratitude as everyone gathered to witness the unveiling of the newly constructed toilets. As Nhlanhleni Primary School embarks on a new chapter with improved sanitation facilities, we celebrate the transformative impact of this joint effort.
