As part of Kaya Cares and our annual Brave Winter campaign, we identify schools in need and endeavour to find solutions to some of their challenges. In 2018, we partnered with Coca Cola to build an assembly area for Zandspruit Primary School. The school has been without an assembly area since its inception and the scholars have been subjected to standing in the scorching sun in the past and on rainy days will start a day without assembly. On the 3rd of December, Kaya 959 and Coca Cola handed over the newly-built assembly area.
In a motivational speech, Kaya 959’s MD Greg Maloka encouraged the learners of Zandspruit to dream beyond their surroundings. He also shared that love and respect are important. “Love and respect are the two things that will get you through most things in life, when you love yourself you will want to educate yourself and want to live beyond here, you are loved and respected by us” said Mr Maloka.
Zandspruit Primary School was very happy and appreciated the new assembly area.
