Molepolole — World Group of Companies' initiative of donating full uniform to schools has been described as a work of a Good Samaritan with the sole purpose of providing equality among school children.

Member of Parliament for Molepolole North, Mr Gaotlhaetse Matlhabaphiri said he was grateful for the impact the donation was likely to make in the lives of the recipients.

"We need to applaud companies like World Group of Companies for their commitment towards supporting Botswana's education system, as the contribution is not only meant to provide uniformity among children, but to also ensure improved level of education in Botswana," highlighted Mr Matlhabaphiri.

The donation as he stated was marking the completion of 10 primary schools which have benefited from the initiative since its inception some seven years ago.

"I am happy that all the 10 primary schools with over 4 000 pupils in Molepolole North have benefited from the initiative that started in 2012 and I am hopeful that it will contribute to improved results," Mr Matlhabaphiri stated.

The teaching and support staff, all PTA members as well as VDC member in the seven wards of Molepolole North were each given a blanket that was hoped to encourage their continuing support towards improved academic performance in schools around Molepolole North constituency.

Meanwhile, Kweneng regional education director - operations, Mr Benson Rauwe expressed gratitude for the support to Botswana's education by business communities as the kind of gesture he said provided dignity to individual children and families.

Mr Rauwe encouraged parents to ensure that their role was evident as he said such would motivate donors, adding that a joint partnership was much required to help government reach the intended goal.

He commended Canon Gordon School for being one of the best performing schools in Molepolole, saying it was through its prudent leadership.

Suping Ward Councillor Allen Jacobs encouraged parents to appreciate donors' efforts by ensuring that the donations add the desired value.
