IN celebration of Mandela Day 2017, Shoprite joined hands with the Ngomso Youth Foundation in Zwide to upgrade their kitchen and garden areas.

“We will be working hand-in-hand with the organisation to upgrade the kitchen and garden so that Lulama Ngqungwana (Ngomso Youth Foundation’s founder and director) is able to better serve the youth of this community who are affected by underage parenting and child-headed homes,” said Kelly Atherton, CSI publicity manager at Shoprite.

“The new direction for Mandela Day, according to the foundation, is to run Mandela Day projects that offer longevity and sustainability. This is exactly what we are trying to do - we want to make sure that the change we create is able to offer Ngomso Youth Foundation more sustainability.”

Some of the upgrades made to the centre include the addition of a gas stove and other kitchen equipment and a new garden complete with soil fertilization, grass, hedging and seeds.

“The aim is to ensure that the community has a comfortable centre,” Atherton concluded. – REPORTER
