Namibia: MMCT Donates Materials to Learners

Windhoek — One hundred and thirty (130) Grade 1 learners from the Michelle McLean Primary School in Otjomuise each received a box of stationeries packed by Windhoek Stationers on February 19.

The box included a beginner's pencil, colouring book, colouring pencils, twistable crayons, eraser and sharpener. The boxes were officially handed over to the learners on Tuesday February 19 by the school. "This is the second year we are doing this, we do this because of the fact that stationery is extremely expensive and we wanted to provide the learners with the basics," says Michelle Visser, the Secretary/Personal Assistant of Michelle McLean Children Trust (MMCT)

"I think that this project definitely allows the Grade 1s learners to start their school career on a positive note. These kids really need help when it comes to stationery and other schools materials since they are more expensive and not all the parents can afford. So this project allows them not to feel left out as well as being positive about school, "she emphasises. The MMCT Michelle McLean was given a discount on the stationeries by Windhoek Stationers.
