Epworth High School pupils had an outreach program for the “Khayalethu Community Drop in Centres” on Tuesday, 20 November 2018. The pupils spent three hours planting spinach, cabbage and beetroot seedlings in Swapo, Masons and Mountain Rise informal settlement
The purpose for this outreach program was to expose the pupils to a different environment and for them to see the living conditions of other communities. Grade 10 pupil, Andile Cele said she is glad that they had an opportunity to give back to the communities that are in need. “We are doing this to express our love and care for other people. Gardening is a good and simple way of producing food and should be considered by every househould”, said Cele.
YFC/KZN Marketing and Communications Intern, Jabu Ndlovu said it was great and touching to see the pupils walking an extra mile in helping others. She added that Sunshine Seedlings supported the outreach program with a donation of seedlings. “We are truly grateful for all the assistance and support we receive from schools and other stakeholders”, said Ndlovu.
