Chiro youth movement donates shoes to five Mogoditshane schools.
As different companies, organisations and individuals continue to demonstrate the spirit of giving towards the less privileged, Roman Holy Cross Chiro Youth Movement donated school shoes to five Mogoditshane primary schools.
Handing over the shoes to the schools' representatives recently in Mogoditshane, the chairperson of Chiro Youth Movement, Mr Duncan Motlhokodise said they had an initiative of giving back to the community by helping where there is need.
He said the donation was not the first one to the five primary schools; as they started the project last year by donating 120 pairs of school shoes, which were given to the needy students.
He revealed that as most of the members were still schooling and not funded by the church, hence they started the initiative by organising aerobics on July 2, where each member was requested to bring a pair of shoes before they could participate in the aerobics class, citing that they managed to collect 75 pairs of shoes this year that would be distributed equally to the five primary schools.
The shoes where given to the schools representatives to allocate them accordingly, since they know the need of the students of their respective schools.
Receiving the shoes, the school head of Moamogwe Primary School Mr Kgosietsile Ntlauli thanked Chiro Youth Movement for the good gesture, believing that the shoes will change the student's life.
He urged the youth movement to continue helping and changing the lives of many.
Another school representative, a Guidance and Counseling teacher from Lesirane Primary School, Ms Mmateme Thebe told the youth movement that they were a solution to the lives of many, citing that the shoes would bring happiness to the receiving students.
She further said with or without money they should always help where necessary, adding that the presence of a person with a good heart brought happiness to others and made them feel loved and appreciated in the society.
Meanwhile, the chief representative Kgosi Goitsemang Dihutso applauded Chiro Youth Movement for the 'wonderful job', urging them to voluntarily continue with the good spirit of showing love and compassion to others.
Kgosi Dihutso also urged the recipients to receive the gifts with open hearts, emphasising that they should take a good care of them as they were given to them with love.
