Three-hundred learners benefit from Umdoni’s ‘Dress a child’ campaign

Umdoni Deputy Mayor, Cllr Khathi, the Speaker, Cllr Mpanza and councillors who attended the handover with Mr KP Reddy , Umdoni Circuit Manager, and the recipients.

UMDONI Municipality donated uniforms to learners from 44 schools within the Umdoni Municipality at Umzinto Town Hall on Monday, April 23, as part of its Dress a Child campaign.

This annual campaign aims to provide uniforms to as many children as possible, but due to financial constraints, only 300 learners were provided with uniforms.

Present at the function were Mr KP Reddy, Umdoni Circuit Manager, from the Department of Education, councillors, educators and recipients.

Umdoni mayor, Cllr T Dube said that the campaign is mounted to assist the disadvantaged learners from rural areas.

“As a municipality we play an important role, hence we have partnered with the Department of Education to ensure that we do our part.

Education is a priority and these uniforms will offer learners the confidence they need to concentrate on their school work.

However, we want to address parents on the challenges that educators face in school.

The municipality will strive to provide more learners with uniforms in the long run, as there are so many in need of such assistance,” said Mayor Dube.
