A helping hand of P150 00 to the needy schools

Concepts Foundation in conjunction with Desert Bush Walk local organising committee has donated P150 00 to Jwaneng-Mabutsane Sub-region toward a resource centre to benefit more than 15 Primary Schools.

An amount P10 000.00 was given to New Xanagas Primary School in the Ghanzi District in support of Operation New Xanagas.

The Minister of Basic Education Unity Dow handed-over to money. Botho University also gave out 10 computers to support this initiative.

Concepts Foundation was launched in 2016 and the money was raised from a fundraising 25km from Jwaneng to Sese village.

Minister Dow said: “When you give you are taking away what you could be investing in yourself to help another. We thank the 1 500 people who contributed to this project for the less privileged.

“We must care about the less privileged and their education because we are under one region, one country. We cannot ignore them for ignorance is much more expensive than education.

The Third Edition of The Desert Bush Walk 2017 will be held on the July 29, 2017. This 30km annual charity walk is to start in Jwaneng, then take a bush trail into the desert ending back in Jwaneng. The walk is to be used on sustaining education projects and disadvantaged children.
