Relief for learners

2015-08-26 06:00

A GROUP of 100 learners from needy backgrounds and attending the Ntsoanatsatsi Primary School in Rammolotsi, Viljoens­kroon, have received a windfall in the form of shoes and stationery.

The valuable items were presented by Tranquility Lifestyle and Adventure Tours at a function held recently at Ntsoanatsatsi X bringing a smile to the beneficiaries’ faces.

Grace Thoso of Tranquility Lifestyle and Adventure Tours said the initiative was an ongoing charity project, meant to help learners in schools. She said although the initiative was her brainchild, ordinary members of the public also supported it by donating shoes.

“We came together as a society to assist those less fortunate than us by being charitable. Our objective is to make each learner feel loved and appreciated,” said Thoso. She said support by ordinary members of the public who had donated shoes was overwhelming.

“The Bible says blessed is the hand that gives than the one that takes. When you give without expectations, that is when you allow God to be a part of your life, because He sees your heart and opens doors. I’m grateful to all current and potential donors who make the initiative a success,” said Thoso.

She said learners of the Matsieng Primary School in Matsieng, Lesotho, would be the next to benefit from the goodwill gesture with a presentation on 4 October. Shoes sizes needed are from 3 to 8. Those interested in supporting the initiative may contact Thoso on 057-353-1241 or 079-138-1542
