Rand-Air’s commitment to rural pre-school learners

First Quarter 2022 News & events

Rand-Air’s CSR team is involved with the upliftment of Ga-Mashupe Village in Limpopo Province. In recent years this has included supporting the community itself, as well as the local nursery school. Account and communication manager, Mpho Ngamlane explains: “Our relationship with the school began when we assisted the village with a water and sanitation drive in 2018. We soon realised that they had many other challenges, namely the need for basic items and food and for financial support. The Covid-19 pandemic further exacerbated these problems.”

The CSR team continues to lead Rand-Air’s efforts to assist the people of Ga-Mashupe. This includes supporting the nursery school in its educational endeavours. Ngamlane continues: “In May we visited the school and donated food parcels. This December, we celebrated the Grade R graduation by sponsoring school backpacks, lunch boxes and juice bottles, showing our support for the importance of their education.” She emphasises that Rand-Air is dedicated to supporting the nursery school and surrounding community going forward: “I would like to challenge other businesses to get involved with adopting a school − with real meaning, intent and involvement, not just by providing financial aid − to also assist in uplifting the futures of our children. Education and the development of our youth is a privilege to assist with. We look forward to continuing our rewarding relationship with this nursery school and its surrounding community for many years to come,” she concludes.
