Random Acts of Kindness with Dis-Chem

Lerato Education Centre gets a boost

Lerato Education Centre gets a boost to encourage a love of learning

The Lerato Education Centre in Eikenhoff received great news on the John Robbie show on 702 as the Dis-Chem Foundation committed R10 000 a month for a year to the centre, in a Random Act of Kindness.

The Lerato Education Centre was founded by Sister Mary in 2002 to look after 60 children in the area, whose mothers needed a safe place to leave their children while they went to work.

The centre has blossomed into a space where over 500 young children in Sister Mary’s care develop a love of learning, and older children from the community can come to find the facilities and resources to study after school.

John Robbie spoke to Sister Mary about the role that education can play in transforming lives before welcoming Dis-Chem Foundation Founder, Lynette Saltzman to the show.

Lynette had high praise for Sister Mary and the centre, noting that “Sister Mary has a way of turning her dreams into reality and we would like to help her turn more dreams into reality.”

She went on to announce that the Foundation would support Lerato Education Centre with R10 000 per month for the next 12 months.

Sister Mary was delighted with the news, announcing that it was more than she could have anticipated and would help the centre to do many things for the children of Eikenhoff.

If you know of an organization that is doing great things in their community and could use a little support to boost their impact, nominate them for a Random Act of Kindness with 702 and the Dis-Chem Foundation.
