A food security project to support HIV/Aids Orphans and vulnerable children from child headed households is to be launched in Ramatlabama village outside Mahikeng on Thursday afternoon.
North West Premier Thandi Modise is to deliver the keynote address at the launch of the Mangwana Permaculture Project which is an initiative funded and supported by Pretoria Portland Cement (PPC) in partnership with Trees for Africa.
"It is encouraging that private sector companies are adjusting their Corporate Social Investment strategies to partner with government and respond to the challenges of high level of unemployment, malnutrition, HIV/Aids, substance abuse, crime and early teenage pregnancy that are experienced in our rural communities," says North West Premier Thandi Modise ahead of the launch.
Members of the media are invited to cover the launch scheduled to commence at 12h30pm at Mangwana Day Care Centre.
