Damelin KZN held their annual Goodwill Project giving back to over 5000 pupil’s across various schools in KwaZulu-Natal with a fun-filled day of good food, music and entertainment on Tuesday, 10 November 2015.
The project, spearheaded by Chairman, Leo Chetty, celebrates ten years of investing in schools and children. Mr Chetty who personally attended the schools and assisted with giving all food and treats said, “This project is close to my heart and was initiated as a life lesson to my children. There are a number of unfortunate children within our reach and we all need to get involved in some way to make a difference.”
Some of the needy schools included, Klaarwater Primary School in Pinetown, Ingende Senior and Ubehedu Primary School in Hammarsdale and Nichols Primary School in Pietermartizburg.
Coordinator of the project, General Manager for Damelin PMB, Sibongiseni Magwaza, together with Damelin, Overport and Durban City campus staff ensured that the food was packed, candy floss and popcorn were distributed and the jumping castle and DJ was set-up and ready.
Despite the rain, the children danced and sang in excitement following the DJ’s tunes as well as jumped to their hearts content on the jumping castles. To wind down, they enjoyed snacks and the scrumptious meals provided.
With a heart-warming gesture, the pupils bowed in thanks showing their gratitude to the team for coming out to their school and giving them a memorable experience.
