Foundation strives to empower rural communities

DIKGALAOPENG – The Thwadi and Molebogeng Foundation continues to provide help for the needy in rural communities within Sekhukhune district.

The foundation recently launched a campaign which was aimed at providing assistance and development programs for the needy communities.

The launch took place in Dikgalaopeng Village outside Groblersdal within the Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality where they about two months ago built a wall around the area’s sports facility to ensure the youth are accorded a proper platform to showcase their talents in their respective sporting codes.

According to the foundation the ‘Lend a Hand’ campaign started in Tshwane, Gauteng in 2018 with feeding schemes for the homeless and donating food at funerals for needy families.

Thwadi Mohlala, Thwadi and Molebogeng Foundation Chairperson, said the foundation’s formation was advised by her experience of having grown up in a rural area where access to anything relevant towards her development was almost impossible.

Mohlala said such experience led to the establishment of the foundation as a platform for the needy, especially the youth to realize their dreams.

“I grew up in a church family and that also taught me a lot about caring for those less fortunate and I thank God for giving me an opportunity to be able to assist in the development of my community,” said Mohlala.

The chairperson remembered the challenges that some of the teenage girls were faced with during her time as a pupil at Matsepe Primary School and that was how the recent donation of sanitary towels in Dikgalaopeng Village came about.
