Community builder Phomolo Raisa from Botshabelo has scooped one of the top awards at this year’s Clover Mama Afrika national competition.

She received the ultimate cleanliness and hygiene award after the panel of judges voted for the work she is doing at an empowerment centre, the Self-help Pre-school.

Raisa received the prize for continuously maintaining a solid infrastructure within the centre, and ensuring a healthy and safe environment for all members in their care.

The empowerment centre has 11 different projects. It cares for approximately 250 child­ren. Apart caring for these children, it also renders skills development programmes for youth and adults.

The centre was founded in 1995 by Florence Nyakiso, who retired at the end of 2018.

Raisa, who now manages the centre, has been working with the founder.

The prize-giving function was held on 4 February in Mossel Bay. Held annually, the competition is a community social investment project of Clover, a dairy and beverages making company.

Part of the prize will be on-site catering training during this year’s Madiba Week.
