Abathwa Primary School were the beneficiaries of Conlog’s latest education initiative and scored with two new classrooms, two mobile libraries, uniforms and a fridge.
Conlog is making a very real socio-economic impact on the historically disadvantaged in KwaZulu-Natal, investing in much needed infrastructure and resources at Abathwa Primary situated in the deep rural area of Nquthu in Zululand.
The company was approached by the school in August 2016 for assistance as they had major problems with overcrowding in their classrooms and a lack of resources. Representatives of Conlog’s Corporate Social Responsibility committee visited the school and identified that lack of space was a major problem. Sadly, learners from two totally different grades were sharing one classroom viz Grades two and three shared one classroom while grades four and five shared another classroom. This environment is not conducive to learning and posed a huge challenge for teachers who took turns to teach at different times. It was also found that there was no library or reading material for the learners and many learners who are from impoverished communities had no proper uniforms.
Conlog’s corporate social responsibility committee decided that they would build two new classrooms to overcome the space shortage and that there would be no more sharing of classrooms. Furthermore, they also donated two mobile libraries with two hundred books each, with a view to boost the literacy rate at the school. Some of the underprivileged learners were also handed a full set of uniforms complete with track suits and jerseys and the excited learners could not contain themselves at the handover function held at the school in September last year.
