The Hollywood Foundation was proud to partner with Nomzamo Mbatha’s Lighthouse Foundation, through the Back to School campaign. The campaign has proven to be life-changing and has already made a significant impact on many learners in the country this year. Thembimfundo Special School was the latest school to receive assistance, and teachers and learners were extremely grateful for the much-needed support.
The school is based in Mbongolwane, and it opened its doors to educate eager learners in 2014. The school prioritises the needs of its learners, who require extra assistance on a daily basis. The teachers at the school are hardworking and constantly go the extra mile to offer support to learners who have profound intellectual disabilities. Parents of these learners are constantly faced with pressure to cater to the needs of their children, and they also find it challenging to ensure that their children are equipped with basic school requirements at the start of the year. On 21 February 2022, Team Members from KwaZulu-Natal, as well as from the Lighthouse Foundation, were proud to lend a helping hand through the contribution of school shoes and school uniforms.
The Principal of Thembimfundo Special School, MH Dlamini, was overwhelmed after receiving the new school items for the learners, and thanked both organisations for their generosity and willingness to help learners with special needs.
