AS part of their 2014 Nelson Mandela Day programme when they adopted ten indigent families in the John Taolo Gaetsewe District, the John Taolo Gaetsewe Development Trust handed over part of the remaining seven houses in Maruping and Magoja-neng recently.

The fully-completed four-roomed houses were handed over to the Morwanyane and Kgakatsi families who have been living in derelict structures.

Elisa Kgakatsi of Magojaneng thanked the trust for the house. “I highly laud the trust for having changed our living conditions, and I believe other families will attest to it. I hope the trust grows to advance development in our region.”

The CEO of the trust, Tumelo Mpolokeng, said: “We are proud as an institution to have changed the lives of the ten families we identified. We can’t do it alone in our region, we need other role players to come in and assist in eradicating and improving the conditions of our communities. Everyone must practise Mandela Day every day knowing that by faith you’re able to change people’s lives.”

Mpolokeng quoted Nelson Mandela as saying: “Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity; it is an act of justice. Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. You can be that great generation.”
