The Children of Jubane Secondary school received a much needed donation visit from the Non-profit organisation (NPO) Mphahlale Youth Development (MYD) at Motantanyane village in Zebediela on 31th of July 2019.
Learners where lined up during lunch time to get their sanitary towels from MYD who said nothing makes them happier than putting a smile on child’s face.
The organisation chose Jubane due to its background of dominated underprivileged learners and this was the second “stay free campaign event” for organisation gave away sanitary towels.
Proceedings kicked off with a prayer by Pastor Tshepo Tloane, followed by a small address from Kgotlelelo Malete, a current Miss Capricorn and ended off with keynote address coming from the motivational speaker, Thabang Bokgopa.
Thelma Ngobeni, the director of the MYD, said she was inspired to spread its wings and meet the school half away with their contribution.
“Those dark days for girl child are gone. During the intervention with learners we heard that some learners have already missed class, but now with this gifts we deem not even a single girl child would be affected,” said Thelma.
“We targeted this school because many learners here can’t afford to buy sanitary towels. Our primary activity is to assist underprivileged with their needy,” she said.
After opening the ceremony, pastor shared his touching story while he was behind bars.
“I was imprisoned for 18 years but while I was in prison I managed to obtain two of my qualifications. Why you think is hard for you to do so while you have necessary support and needy material to study? Let us be a reading community, either newspaper or books,” said pastor.
Meanwhile founder of the organisation Bokang said various stakeholders were invited including members of Victim Empowerment Programme (VEP) and South African Police Services (SAPS).
The children were over the moon with joy due to all the gifts they received and the fun morning they had from various speakers.
