A group of fifteen (15) ladies from Maruping, Batlharos, Magojaneng and Bankhara have come together to help children in need from disadvantaged backgrounds by providing them with Toiletries. This initiative established by Peo Tumelo Modukanele says she saw the need in the community after going to couple of schools and identifying the problem of low esteem in children and realised it is because some come to school not having bathed and that affects their confidence and how they perform at school and she decided to be part of the solution by bringing her friends to assist and that is how the Help A Child Initiative started. They do not have any sponsors at the moment, therefore everyone donates what they can and they then package and make distributions at schools.
They have distributed these packages to learners at schools such as Gamohana Junior Secondary School, Rremogo High School, Maruping Primary School and their next distribution includes learners at Gaegake Primary School and Seupe Primary school bringing the total of numbers assisted to sixty (60). The ladies strongly believe that if you want to invest for 10 years plant trees but if you want a lifetime investment educate a child. They truly reflect that a child is raised by a nation. “I have a great team and that makes me feel confident and secure, inspired by Motherhood l know how important it is to nurture and prepare a child to face life’s challenges.”
