To improve education in his community, a businessman, Mr Lucky Musekene donated a library to Humbelani Secondary School at Phadzima last Thursday.
The library, the AD Netshitahame Memorial Library was donated in honour of a late education guru in the area.
During the handing over of the library, Musekene said he hoped a library will be used to the benefit the pupils and community members, and to ensure an improvement in the school’s results. He said that they recognise pupils as the nation´s assets and that they should in future be assisted and developed by his company.
Musekene said the contribution formed part of the company´s corporate social investment programme, focusing on education and community development. "Our corporate social investment programme is already being felt throughout South Africa, particularly in education and we will continue assisting with resources and facilities wherever possible," he said.
The chairperson of school’s governing body, Mr Khaukanani Mantsha welcomed the donation and said it came at a time when the school was in dire need of a library. "Our pupils are highly motivated, and we thank Mr Musekene for their help," said Mantsha.
He added that the donation will help them meet their mission of providing comprehensive information service to pupils, staff and the community.
