WITH a desire to educate and create a better tomorrow for all, the owners of BP Moore Road in Durban, Graeme and Zelda Schewitz have launched a new NPO.

The Litres For Education Trust (LFE) enables ordinary people to make a difference in an educational institution or other worthy cause of their choice, based on the amount of fuel purchased monthly.

Graeme says the duo’s vision is to build a network of donor service stations across the country and in so doing enable motorists to get involved in bettering the country, one litre at a time. “For every litre you fill up, 10 cents will be donated to a charity or school of your choice. It is as simple as that. “We have LFE service stations that have kindly joined the programme and are supporting their communities,” said Graeme.

He said he is aware that many in the community lead busy lives and often get lost in the world of social media and advertising, and so on, but asks for support.

“We all need to support our community and we can start by logging onto the LFE website and joining the cause.”

Service stations in the Upper Highway area that support LFE are BP Hillcrest, Caltex Winston Park and Caltex Cotswold Downs.

“So how can you start giving back by filling up? Either go onto our website www.litresforeducation.co.za and sign up or go to the petrol stations mentioned and get the sticker for the charity or school of your choice.

“Once you have your sticker with its unique code, you just fill up as usual, while changing someone’s life.

“We have friends or family that have been helped by many of our LFE charities. Many of our LFE charities are sustained solely through community donations. The people driving these charities are passionate, but need finance to keep their causes moving forward,” said Graeme.

“Next time you fill up please give a thought to those less fortunate and support our LFE service stations in your community. Let us all drive education, one litre at a time.”
