Local Samaritan Idah Rakale together with Ke Tswa Mabopane (KTM) donated school shoes at a local school Soshangaan primary in Mabopane Block A on Friday.
Nine pairs of school shoes were donated by community members at an event organised by Rakale and KTM in December last year. As a way of fundraising for the school shoes.
Rakale said she is very pleased to have donated the shoes with the help of the community and she is very grateful.
“It is not only about the school shoes it is also about developing the school. I advised the Principal to visit local business owners so that they can assist in developing the school and I am also willing to assist learners to get funding for extracurricular activities,” said Rakale.
The school’s Principal Stephen Matlou thanked all those who donated shoes and the organisers for their good deed. Matlou also touched on the challenges the school is faced with, which includes funding for their sports activities. The school is currently working with the Bruno Foundation which donates school uniforms and other necessities to advantaged learners at the school.
