Last week Shoprite hosted a graduation ceremony for 20 learners who lost their school due to arson earlier this month.
The learners of Under the Tree ECD (Early Childhood Development) Centre in Markman, together with their teachers and parents, were all invited to celebrate their successful completion of Grade R.
“We didn’t want the children to think that their hard work was in vain because the school burnt down. We wanted to end the year properly and give them the graduation they deserve. Thanks to Shoprite we were able to do that. Their donation of refreshments, certificates, photographer and transport costs as well as party packets are much appreciated,” says 80 year-old Tia Wessels, Director of Family Restoration Services, an organisation that runs numerous children empowerment programmes, including Under the Tree ECD.
As a business with heart, Shoprite is committed to support those who #ActForChange in their local communities.
