Thabong SAPS Training, Men for Change and Women’s Network, gathered together to bring smiles on the faces of those who need it the most.
Adamsonflei Farm School was visited with gifts from different sponsors on Monday afternoon. The sponsors included Boxer, Park Wholesale, Minolta and SAPS Thabong Training Academy.
The school was identified as part of the year plan of Men for Change under the theme “Bringing change in someone‘s life”. The school was identified by the secretary of Men for Change Thabong Training, Masilo Nchoba.
Nchoba, together with the Chairperson of Thabong Colonel Moletsane Mothobi, and Women’s Network deemed it fit to bring a difference to the school.
“We specifically chose this school because we felt that they are producing good results and can do much better with sufficient resource,” said Nchoba
Christa Wessels from Minolta donated the photocopying machine on behalf of Minolta staff to the school principal Me Moleboheng Kola. Winter clothes from Park Wholesale, shoe polish and toilet tissues from Boxer Store were also donated to the school children. Paint was also donated from SAPS Thabong Training Academy.
When delivering her speech Wessels said, “I thank the SAPS members for bringing this partnership. The chain that was set today will stay forever, as is not one person’s challenge but the whole nation is affected in either way.”
Masabata Lebeko from Women’s Network thanked the children for being a wonderful audience and encouraged them to study hard so that they become top country learners in the near future.
When thanking all the role players who made the event a success, Colonel Mothobi said he is looking forward to a long term relationship between them and the management of the school.
After all the principal of the school Me Kola thanked all the sponsors and the people who made a difference in the lives of the school and the children.
“I appreciate everything that we were given as the school. The photocopying machine was a primary need for the school we did not have the funds to purchase it. I thank you for spoiling my children, it means a lot to me,” said Me Kola.
