KASANE BRANCH DONATES SCHOOL UNIFORM TO KASANE PRIMARY SCHOOL
The Kasane Branch lived to the biblical principle that says ‘blessed is the hand that gives’ when they committed themselves to contribute money to buy full school uniform for a standard six pupil of Kasane Primary School. As a team, the Kasane staff realised that as the winter season approached there are those who are underprivileged and cannot afford school uniforms. The team strongly believed that every child, irrespective of economic status, has the right to education. With that in mind, there is no greater travesty than children being denied education, not because they are unwilling, but because they cannot afford uniforms.
By sponsoring a child’s education, you do not only give the child a future, but you also help reduce illiteracy and increase the child’s quality of life. When you sponsor a child’s education, you educate a child and all the future generations yet to come.
