A Soweto school that boasts among its alumni, President Cyril Ramaphosa, has received an upgrade.
The renovation of Tshilidzi Primary School by the Volkswagen Group South Africa (VWSA) employees will benefit 665 learners from Grade R to Grade 7.
It was one of the first schools to be adopted by the Adopt a School Foundation, chaired at the time by Ramaphosa, almost ten years ago
VWSA’s Show of Hands Employee Volunteer Programme has decided that a much needed upgrade to the Grade R classrooms and playground, sickbed room and the schools vegetable garden was required.
Over 160 VWSA Employees and their loved ones gave of their time and skills to upgrading the facilities at the school.
“Our Show of Hands Volunteer programme continues to improve the lives and education of those less fortunate – one school at a time,” said Nonkqubela Maliza, Director: Corporate and Government Affairs: VWSA.
VWSA volunteers also collaborated with Rise Against Hunger and packed 25 000 meal packages to supplement the school’s feeding programme.
It brings the total meals packed by VWSA volunteers to 50 000 for 2018.
