Laddsworth Primary School has been busy collecting old, unused stationery for an afterschool’s programme in Mpophomeni called Ethembeni.
Ethembenia Family Centre cares for children by providing a meal after school, helping them with their school work and also doing home visits once a month where a mentor spends one-on-one time with a child. The Family Centre has provided life-skills training to 72 children, and also takes care of young children during the day while parents are at work.
Many children there don’t have access to one pencil. By helping the programme we are saving secret water, energy and materials to make the stationery they need.
