Kishugu Fleet Solutions gives back to children
Kishugu Fleet Solutions recently donated 150 black steel pots to the Dasha Foundation and various Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres and underprivileged schools through Penreach.
The Dasha Foundation, a local school that caters for the specific needs of disabled children, indicated that they will use their 50 pots as a fundraising initiative. “Dasha is truly blessed and privileged to have received these pots,” says Shirley Parsons, the school’s Principal. “By selling them, we will be able to generate additional funds needed to continue improving the lives of each child at our school.”
All the other receiving centres and primary schools, which include Bantfwabetfu Day Care, Edu-Day Care Centre, Umjindi ECD and Siposethu Day Care, have active feeding schemes which support children with a meal a day, Mondays through Fridays.
“Most of these schools make use of traditional cooking methods, such as open fires, to prepare their learners’ meals,” explains Candice Streek, Marketing and Communication Assistant for Penryn College/Penreach. “Some have started adapting to using gas for cooking, but in both cases, these pots serve as very useful resources for cooking.”
“It is inspiring to hear how much these centres and schools do to care for and enable children to raise up above their abilities and circumstances. Our contribution is a drop in the ocean, but it is a privilege to help in this small way,” says Robbie Stevenson, CEO for Kishugu Fleet Solutions.
