Our social responsibility

I recently visited Mehlwenkosi Primary School in Kwaswayimane, a small location near Wartburg. Mehlwenkosi Primary has been classified as a no-fee school by the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Education, as part of its no-fee school policy aimed at ensuring that all children of school-going age have access to education.

What was supposed to be a simple assignment on Mehlenkosi Primary and its no-fee status soon became an expedition of alarming discovery — not only about the school, but about the sad conditions its surrounding community lives under.
