HRDC staff amazingly, has always supported this project from the onset by also extending their contribution towards the welfare of Malatswae Community. They have so far generously contributed stationery, clothing, toiletry, toys and other items to the community Officiating as the guest speaker at the Prize Giving Ceremony, the Chief Executive Officer of HRDC Dr Raphael Dingalo highlighted, ‘‘Through education, the Country’s citizens are accorded the ability to determine their future as well as become agents of societal transformation and advancement.

It is therefore for the same reason that Government spends a greater share of the national budget towards advancing education.’’ Kgosi Bosigo of Malatswae appreciated the efforts of the HRDC management and Staff for supporting the school in its endeavour to educate its learners. He further encouraged the learners to continue to work hard to ensure they utilise the opportunity they have been provided to improve their lives and their community.
