The Northern Cape Department of Education as part of the NC EXCO Outreach programme visited schools in Kenhardt, Soverby and Louisvale during the past week. It offered us the opportunity to touch base with the school principals, school management teams and school governing bodies to assess the state of affairs at 7 schools. 

We've conducted a pre-asessment to these schools prior to the NC EXCO Outreach programme to determine exactly what the needs were. In partnership with the Northern Cape Schools Trust we were able to donate an amount of R165000 to 7 schools in the identified towns and fulfil in their immediate needs. The beneficiary of these funds will be the deserving learners of these schools and contribute to the quality of education and their overall academic performance. 

We will continue to bring immediate relief in schools where needs do exist. The learners are our future and they deserve the best opportunity to succeed in life. The NC EXCO Outreach programme is a perfect platform to bring about change in our schools and in our communities.
