The South African Democratic Teacher’s Union is asking for our help to ensure that kids can start the new school year with pride.
SADTU Western Cape has launched a regional campaign to collect school shoes and socks for underprivileged children. Jonavan Rustin, provincial secretary, says while many parents are already polishing their kids’ shoes and laying out fresh socks in preparation for Wednesday, there are countless kids who will have to brave the first day back without the right gear. “We want to give learners a great start to the new year and enable them to walk in their classrooms, heads held high.”
If you have shoes or socks to donate, contact 021-930 8316 to find out where your nearest SADTU branch is.
