Resident extends helping hand to Patikwane

A resident of Serowe, Mr Edwin Mogaetsho donated sanitary pads, boxer briefs and toothpaste to Patikwane Junior Secondary School students in Mabeleapodi on Monday.

Handing over the donation, 36-year-old self-employed  man, said the objective was to give the girl child support after realising that some of them lacked necessities such as sanitary pads, which often compelled them to abscond from school.

Mr Mogaetsho said the idea of donating sanitary was also intended to instill proper hygiene amongst the students.

Mr Mogaetsho said the donation was made possible by his friends and relatives, who helped him to make the donation on his birthday.

He said his desire was to give others than receive as it was the norm on one’s birthday.

Another resident, Mr Joel Mokolokoto, who accompanied Mr Mogetsho, said they saw it fit to extend a helping hand to the school, which had many disadvantaged students.

Head of department in the school, Mr Kabo Kebinakgabo lauded the donor and appreciated the gifts saying they came at the right time after lockdown.

He said the gift would motivate the students and assist in their well-being. 

On other issues, he encouraged parents to help the children to study and afford them time to rest. One of the parents, Ms Boitumelo Pheko thanked the donors for the noble gesture and encouraged them to extend a helping hand to other less privileged community members.

Parents and Teachers Association representatives also appreciated the support with the notion that the gift would motivate students to concentrate and excel in their studies. ENDS
