Opening parties are a back-to-school hit

"The cost of back-to-school stationery is frightening – and it’s out of reach for our families. Thankfully, ACFS has some amazing friends who understand these challenges."

In February, Deloitte SA and City Property treated 100 children to “opening parties” to mark the opening of the new school year. The children were served hot dogs and received new backpacks filled with stationery like scissors and pens.

“This backpack drive is very important to us. The children are so excited to start school with their very own brand new possessions – and it means they don’t need to borrow from classmates and get exposed for their poverty. Owning their own stationery builds confidence and a positive attitude, and we find that they learn better in class,” explains ACFS Executive Director Phindile Hlalele.

Thank you Deloitte SA and City Property. Your generosity touched many hearts.
