The Hollywood Foundation’s Back to School campaign is continuing to touch lives across the country. The campaign also afforded the community a chance to nominate a school that they believed could benefit from extra assistance this year. Portia Mmbidi, a community member, nominated Tsakani Primary School, and the Team from Gauteng was proud to extend a helping hand.
The school is based in Kagiso, and has been educating learners since 1991. The teachers were excited and pleased to hear that they will be receiving support, as many learners are needy and come to school with no shoes. The school continuously seeks to develop the learners, through extra-curricular programmes such as sports. The learners also receive a meal a day, due to the inclusion of a feeding scheme. On 8 February 2022, the Team was proud to hand over boxes of brand-new school shoes, in order to help learners who came from poor families and could not afford to purchase the staple school requirement.
BS Mushwana, a representative for the school, thanked the Hollywood Foundation for the life-changing initiative, and said that the school shoes will help the learners, especially during the harsh, winter season.
