A CULTURE of giving back to communities should be an everyday activity by all successful individuals. Speaking during a visit to Nqutshini Primary School outside Ngwelezana last week, Director of Vusukukhanya Cleaning Services, Nokukhanya Mthiyane, said if people are committed to taking the country forward, they should all be contributing to nation building.
Mthiyane, who grew up in Nqutshini and attended the primary school, said her visit was motivated by the desire to plough back into the community that nurtured her development.
‘I’m always careful to remember that I am where I am today because of the invaluable assistance I received along the way from the community of Nqutshini. I felt I needed to do something for the learners of the school in the form of a school uniform donation.
‘Even though we are not a big company, the little we have will make a difference to the 50 learners we identified as needing support.’
iNduna Paulos Mtshali applauded the company for assisting the school and appealed for more
companies to follow suit. ‘We are a school in a deep rural area and we need funding from both the private sector and government.
‘Among others, we need fencing of our school. As things stand our teachers and learners are not safe. ‘We also have broken desks and even the structures of our classrooms and especially the kitchen is not in good shape.
If these are left unattended, they could put the lives of the teachers and that of the learners at risk.’
