Schoolboxes boost for Midlands school pupils

Love Howick Project

If you’re looking for a meaningful way to make a difference in a young life this festive season, please consider donating to Love Howick’s Santa’s Schoolboxes drive.

Funds and school stationery/essentials can be donated and will benefit a needy and deserving pupil in our community.

This gift will not only warm hearts but will give underprivileged pupils the means to make their school year successful by getting off on the right foot. Love Howick aims to distribute 300 schoolboxes to under-resourced schools in the KZN Midlands at the start of the 2021 school year.

The organisation said, “Many of these learners start their school year with little-to-no stationery, thus making it difficult to reach their dreams. Through your generous partnership, we hope to change so many young lives by giving them the right start.”

School profile: Yarrow Intermediate School (beneficiary school)

Yarrow Intermediate School is situated on a farm in the Karkloof. The school premises is home not just to Yarrow pupils, but to Gartmore Primary pupils too. Gartmore’s school premises was badly damaged in a storm in 2014 and Yarrow generously took the pupils in, even though Yarrow too is battling with resources.

Some of these pupils have to walk more than 10km from home to school and back, every day. They use a multi-grade, multi-phase system as there is a shortage of space and teachers available to cater to each grade and phase individually.

Yarrow Intermediate is a no-fee paying school, as most parents are farm workers earning minimum wage. This school has a big heart and a big vision – so let’s join together and support them.
