Redi Tlhabi, along with the Truck of Love team and Spar, brought delight into the Kgosi Neighbourhood Foundation. Despite the cold weather, the children were upbeat and excited when they saw toys. Their educators were in awe of a number of gifts they received.
“This is huge! Who knew that this could happen to us. This is beautiful, thank you,” said one of the teachers who asked to remain unnamed.
The Kgosi Neighbourhood Foundation provides free preschool education to over 120 children each year. The children at the KNF, Wings of Hope School come from homes challenged by extreme poverty.
Some children have never had the opportunity to play with toys, or use scissors and crayons. Most children have never seen a book or had a story to read to them. Without the educational opportunities offered by KNF, these children would enter Grade 1 without the foundation necessary to succeed.
Once in their care, the children receive two years of high-quality education, two hot meals and a snack every day, basic medical care and tremendous love and support. Their graduates enter Grade 1 in the local school system confident and knowledgeable.
702 and Spar you have made such a big difference in our school. We needed every single thing you gave us; we are so grateful thank you very much 702 and Spar. Thank you!— Babalwa Tuntulwana, Principal of Kgosi Neighbourhood Foundation Pre-school
