Members of the fledging Ratson Foundation donated stationery to needy learners at Luleka Primary School, in Harare, on Tuesday 5 March.

Learners and teachers were over the moon as they received the presents. Each of the 60 learners benefitted. They all received pencils, six crayons, erasers and rulers.

The Mowbray based Foundation was established in 2017 and is working closely with disadvantage communities, particularly in the townships and rural areas.

The foundation generates revenue among members to help where there is a need.

Grade R educator Nelisiwe Mjola described the donation as a great initiative. “Not all the learners have the stationery required. Some of learners are coming to without pencils. Not because their parents don’t buy it for them, but they misplace it,” she said.

Majola described the foundation phase as the most difficult and as the one that needs a lot of care.

“Being an educator in this phase needs a lot of energy and perseverance. You mustn’t be harsh, but ensure that they understand what you are trying to instil in them,”said Majola.

She urged parents to send their children to school instead of leaving them with their neighbours or relatives.

Ratson Foundation founder Lindiwe Malumbazo said they identify families in need and schools to help.

“It is our first time visiting the school and we are intending to come back after Good Friday to donate school uniforms,” said Malumbazo.

School principal Gcobani Mtoba described the event as a great project to uplift the community.

“We are feeling proud as a school. We see this as ploughing back to the community,” he said and urged local business people to also come on board.
