‘Know Your City’ tour programme brings joy to local school

Maseru Madlala (Know Your City), Kristina Andreas Louw (brand ambassador of Ntenga Foundation), Dr Stella Khumalo (CEO of uShaka Marine World) and Pearl Olivier (Know Your City).

uShaka Marine World in collaboration with the Ntenga Foundation and the ‘Know Your City’ tour programme, recently visited Bhekulwandle Primary School to donate school shoes, much to the delight of pleased pupils.

Upon arrival, the school of over 800 underprivileged pupils were treated to entertainment by the Ocean Warrior Mascots of uShaka Marine World, which left every face with a smile.

Thereafter, Dr Stella Khumalo (CEO of uShaka Marine World) addressed the youngsters. Hundred brand new school shoes were then donated to the principal, who had already allocated them accordingly.

The entire school, teachers and principal were grateful for being considered for the donation.

The school shoes were donated as a result of the funds raised by the Ntenga Foundation charity run/ walk over the past year.

Now in its fourth year running, the Ntenga Foundation charity run/ walk is already one of the top unique charity mass participation events in KwaZulu-Natal, bringing together a superb fusion of music and athletics to Durban.

Nearly 6000 social runners, families and friends will participate at this year’s race by taking part in either a 5km or 10km run/walk. Funds raised through the event goes towards buying school shoes for underprivileged children like those of Bhekulwandle Primary School.

To commemorate Youth Day, the Ntenga Foundation will be hosting its fourth annual charity run from Moses Mabhida Stadium at 7am, with the event ending at uShaka Marine World’s Wet ‘n Wild on Saturday, June 16.

“We are delighted to have been able to provide these children with school shoes and thank uShaka Marine World for supporting our fundraising efforts by getting involved in our charity run/ walk,” said Siyanda Calvin Ntenga (chairman of the Ntenga Foundation).
