Feline Fields rescues Sexaxa children

Pupils at Sexaxa settlement in Ngamiland will no longer have to walk 18 km to and from Matlapaneng Primary School near Maun, thanks to Feline Fields Okavango's gesture of goodwill.

The company ended the pupils’ years of agony by donating a mini-bus worth P65 000, which would be used to transport the students to and from school at no cost at all.

 Mr Tebogo Monnaaphuthego, the company’s operations manager, confirmed in an interview that the donation was the answer to the children’s plight of walking through heavy rains and scorching heat to and from school in Matlapaneng every week.

Mr Monnaaphuthego expressed hope that the donation would improve school attendance and discourage truancy and late-coming as a result of the taxing distance they had to endure five days a week.

He said the company would pay for all the operational expenses of the bus, including the salary of the driver. “The company wants to contribute to Vision 2016’s pillar of a compassionate, just and caring nation’,” said the company boss.

The donation would not only save the children, including standard one pupils, the distance they had to travel every day on foot,  but would also reduce the chances of encountering danger along the way. The area is infested with wild and dangerous animals such as lions and buffalos from the nearby Moremi Game Reserve. ENDS
