New School Uniforms and Stationery Bring Joy
Posted on: 30 September 2021
Our CARE values – Communicate, Alignment, Relationship, Empowering – form the bedrock of our culture at Kaap Agri and play a crucial part in how the company operates.
Unlocking the doors to quality education is one way we act out the value of Empowering. We believe that education is one of the most powerful tools to transform one’s life and we are proud of the relationships we’re able to form in our local communities in order to impact the lives of young people.
Kaap Agri recently donated 135 brand-new school uniforms and stationery supplies worth R92,000 to Karookop Primary School in Moutonshoek, Piketberg.
Karookop is a rural primary school for learners in Grades R to 7. The school supplies were donated to the Foundation Phase learners (those in Grades R to 3).
“It’s a requirement that each learner should have their own set of school clothes and stationery. However, many of the learners’ parents are farmworkers who battle financially.
As a result, the school struggles with fundraising,” explains Henk Brand, the school principal.
The learners were overjoyed to receive their school kits which included a windbreaker rain jacket, a pair of school shoes, school socks, and a pencil case with stationery.
“The educators, parents and learners really appreciate this donation. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,” says Henk.
