GA-KGOETE – There is a famous saying that “charity begins at home” that phrase pushed Sarah Kgoete from Ga Kgoete village to give back to her community.

Kgoete told GT News that she had always been involved in community projects in areas such as Johannesburg, Pretoria & Nelspruit but she hadn’t done much to the people of Ga Kgoete.

“After thorough introspection, I finally decided to contribute to my people. I had previously shared this idea with my family,” she said.

“My mother supported the idea   of having Mandela day at Ga-kgoete, Majoe a Kgoro Primary school where I schooled as a young girl,” she added.

Along with five alumnus of the school the group raised R10 000 from their own pockets and donated it to the school  on July 28.

The group also cooked for SGB, teachers and all the learners on the day.

“They we all happy, impressed and could not stop sending messages of appreciation. We are aiming at making the project a yearly thing and get most of the school alumni to participate and get more sponsors,” she said.

Kgoete told Greater Tubatse News that Majoe-a Kgoro has been in existence for many years with a capacity of 600 learners and 12 teachers.

“Most of these learners are coming from poor families and are dependent on school nutrition for meals. The school buildings are currently dilapidated with leaking roofs, cracked walls, damaged floors and has poor sanitation facilities.”
