The Kopano Care Centre and soup kitchen in Kagisho has officially launched its holiday programme for learners in a brand-new Wendy house, thanks to Price­waterhouseCoopers (PwC) in Kimberley.

The centre can now accommodate more children, under a decent roof, over the school holidays.

In addition to the usual fun-filled holiday activities, this year the centre can also fit reading into the educational holiday programme.

According to Rev. Dennis Thole, founder of the non-profit organisation, they were further blessed by the assistance of Uhuru Books and Stationery, which donated reading material to empower the children in the community.

“Our main focus is on primary schools, but we can accommodate all children, as the older ones in higher grades can assist our volunteers,” said Thole.

He said the new building also plays a role in improving learner performance at school, as the centre would be accommodating them for study sessions.

“We have always seen the need for this, due to our library being too far for the learners to access it.

“We have not much to offer, but they can now do the basics, like improving reading and doing homework in an environment conducive to learning.

“We regard this as our mini library,” Thole said, glowing with pride.

Thole expressed his appreciation to all the businesses who continue to assist the organisation.
