Based in Duncan Village, Nompumelelo Primary School is home to many young learners. The school was established in 1961 and it also offers its learners nutritional programmes and psychological support through counselling services. The school was selected by a member of the community, Nosisa, to receive support from the Back to School campaign this year, a life-changing initiative from the Hollywood Foundation.
The school has spoken out about the many challenges that it faces, including the shortage of stationery items for learners and the lack of uniforms. The school is also comprised of many needy and vulnerable learners, who do not have a stable support structure at home. On 17 February 2022, the Team from East London was excited to bring some hope to the school, through the contribution of stationery supplies and uniforms for the new school year.
MW Kolisile, a representative for Nompumelelo Primary School, said that the contribution from the Hollywood Foundation will bring a sense of confidence to the learners, and it will also boost their willingness to learn.
