TSHESENG. – “God is great. He has never failed me and I will forever praise Him. I am very happy because no one could have done this for my children. I am not working and life is tough.”

These were the words of a celebrating Pinki Khaba, a guardian of four children who resides at the Tsheseng Village in Qwaqwa.

Khaba was reacting to the school shoe donation made by the St Kizito Children’s Programme to 152 orphans and vulnerable children who hail from the Tsheseng area.

She said the organisation was doing a good job in helping the needy children and added that her children had benefited a lot form the programme since they had joined.

“They assisted them with the covering of school books at the beginning of the year and now they gave them a pair of school shoes. I want to thank the management and they should keep up the good work,” she said.

Sello Sedi, the organisation’s coordinator, said the donation was aimed at helping their beneficiaries so they could attend school in a proper uniform.

“This is good motivation to our beneficiaries. We believe that they are going to make us proud at the end of the year.

“We are also running an after-school care programme where we help them with their school work,” he said.

Sedi said they didn’t see any reason why all learners would not pass at the end of the year, because they were doing almost everything to help them to realise their dream.

“This is just the beginning of many things to come.

“We will still go out to look for sponsors so that we can help with the education of a black child,” he said.

Sedi is calling anyone who wants to help the centre to visit them at their centre in Tsheseng.
