A generous donation of 65 pairs of brand-new shoes, to impact positively on the quality of life of learners from less fortunate backgrounds, has been presented to three primary schools in Bloemfontein.

This heartwarming gesture was made by the Siya-Fundisa Foundation in Bloemfontein.

Sanitary towels were also donated to the three schools to ­address the plight of girl children who are often forced to miss school during their menstrual cycle.

The foundation donated items to three primary schools: Dalu Xolo, Botlehadi and Tjhebelopele.

“This is our first donation in line with our involvement in the community initiative through which we strive to help and give less fortunate children dignity,” said Lucky Stokwe, chairperson of the foundation.

“We chose schools after observing the situation of most of the learners.”

Stokwe said the items were collected in partnership with Assupol, Vodacom, Toyota and Nosa, as well as individuals who volunteered to donate to positively change the lives of less fortunate learners.
