Gugulethu based Clique Women’s Forum members are determined to continue with their efforts of raising funds for needy learners in eKasi.

Speaking after an event held at Skye Lounge on Saturday, Lerato Matsolo, said they will are growing from strength to strength.

“Out of the 25 ladies in attendance we managed to raise about R1100 that will go towards buying school bags for learners at Xolani Primary School,” said Lerato.

She said they will buy 20 school bags for now but added they still need more for the children.

Clique recently donated a total of 20 pairs of shoes to learners at Lehlohonolo and Xolani primary schools.

Tamzyn Bhele said the forum was borne out of the caring nature of four young women from Gugulethu who saw the need to assist others in less fortunate circumstances.

Initiated by Lerato Matsolo, Ednar Gumbi, Bony Makomazi and Tamzyn Bhele, it slowly mothed into a movement of ‘Good Samaritans’.

“Our membership is growing because people are responsive to the plight of those who cannot afford,” said Tamzyn.

“We want to help alleviate the pressures of poverty on children,” said Bony Makomazi.

Ednar Gumbi appealed to the community to support their efforts.

“By supporting us you will be making a difference in the lives of young ones,” said Ednar.

“We invite other professional women to join us as we endeavour to help the kids,” she concluded. Call Lerato: 0790348634
