Minister Nkoana-Mashabane hosts a Back-to-School campaign

19 January 2017

South African International Relations and Cooperation Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane hosted a Back-to-School campaign at St Paul and Tshipinare Primary Schools in Tha-ba Nchu in the Free State.

Due to the decline in formal employment and consequent increase in unemployment, most learners in the area are from disadvantaged families.

The campaign is envisaged to affirm the values society puts on the success of every child by offering them encouragement. The campaign is important for children, as this conscientises them to take cognisance of the people supporting them. It is hoped that this will motivate and teach them that it is important to care for others.

Minister Nkoana-Mashabane was accompanied by Heads of Mission who also donated items to the school.

 

 Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane will on Friday, 20 January 2016, embark on a Back-to-School campaign in the Winterveldt. Government has identified education and skills development among its apex priorities, and the support of schools and learners, particularly those in rural and underprivileged communities, is of utmost importance. Minister Nkoana-Mashabane will speak to parents, teachers and learners to offer them encouragement and donate several necessities.
