Mpumalanga Libangeni, - Marley Pipe Systems, Mining & Industrial division made a positive contribution to Masana Primary School situated in the rural village of Libangeni in Mpumalanga. As part of the organisation’s ongoing initiatives to empower the youth of South Africa, Marley identified Masana Primary School as a well-suited beneficiary for this specific investment. Being one of the poorest schools in its village, Masana Primary School are in dire need of a number of items including furniture.
“Masana Primary School was established in 1987 to service the rural village of Libangeni. Being a school short of funding and other necessities, we are often faced with significant challenges that hinder our ability to perform our duties of educating the youth,” explains Masana Primary School Principal, Mr. Abraham Bokaba.
Currently there are 511 learners at the school and one of the greatest concerns is the lack of basic furniture. Marley Pipe Systems donated office furniture including chairs, desks, drawers, filing cabinets, dustbins and credenzas to the hopeful learners. During his address at Masana Primary School, HR Manager Ferdi Steffens explained, “At Marley Pipe Systems, we firmly believe in development at grass-root levels, although we do have a dedicated commitment to industry specific investments, we are constantly looking at investing in education and empowerment initiatives”.
According to school Principal Mr. Abraham Bokaba, “We at Masana Primary School are extremely grateful to Marley Pipe Systems for their kind gesture. We are blessed to have been chosen by this organisation and we look forward to a long-term marriage with Marley Pipe Systems”.
