Helping to make a difference!
Kwantu Private Game Reserve is involved in a feeding program for a local primary schools aimed at stimulating community development and interaction among the people.
The program which involves the South African Police Service (SAPS), the Education Department and Kwantu Private Game Reserve has seen the restoration and building of public confidence on local government structures. Since the time the feeding programme was started, sources close to the three schools that have so far benefited from the feeding scheme that is carried once a week per school say that a number of kids have improved with their academic studies.
The initiative is also credited for seeing an increase in enrolment at these community oriented schools.
The local teachers revealed that most of the children were attending classes without having consumed a meal, a situation which negatively affected their performance in class. Management at Kwantu Private Game Reserve believes in the importance of education and the value an intellectual society will play in the growth of the country’s economy. This played to assist the less privileged in its environs. Kwantu Private Game Reserve Prepare an assortment of food items from its kitchens which is delivered to the schools were an estimated 150 children are fed per school every week.
The Kwantu Private Game Reserve staff who coordinate the programme have had the opportunity to chat with the children, teachers and local police who supervise the programme.
