An unemployed mother of five, Camilla Pitt (28), could not hide her gratitude towards the members of the Kutlwanong Advocacy Group in Kimberley for donating school uniforms to her children on Tuesday, 6 February.

She expressed her admiration for this group of young people who live in her community and of whom she had never expected help in such a way.

The Kutlwanong Advocacy Group is a registered non-profit orga­nisation which assists learners in primary and high school by pro­viding school uniforms and stationery.

The group, which consists of five members, also assists young people in its community through various interventions of returning to school if they have not completed their education.

As part of their annual Adopt a Child school programme, the group handed over school uniforms to the five disadvantaged children in Kutlwanong.

According to the group members, they were aiming to help at least 250 children of various schools in Galeshewe, which could unfortunately not materialise.

“Although the campaign did not kick off as we expected, that did not dampen our spirits, as we will take it one step at a time,” said Itumeleng Senye, chairperson of the group.

He explained that their major sponsor had pulled out of the race and they thus had to look for another sponsor.

“We had to go through our database to identify the poorest of the poor as beneficiaries for now.”

Senye said they would continue the programme throughout the year in order to reach more children.

“Thus we request the community to team up in identifying learners and their various needs, and for sponsorships in whatever way they can,” Senye said.
