Waterkloof is a proud long-term partner of the Sir Lowry’s Pass Empowerment Project. In honour of #MandelaDay, we’d like to shine a spotlight on their invaluable work undertaken in Sir Lowry’s Pass Village, an impoverished community in our area.
The Tina Cowley Reading Centre at Sir Lowry’s Pass Primary School provides critical literacy, numeracy, mathematics and school readiness classes to more than 1,300 learners every week. In 2013, we provided funds to help build the centre. In 2014, we were proud to contribute towards custom-made furniture for the centre’s classrooms. Today, Waterkloof makes monthly donations to support the centre’s commendable work. It is a privilege to continue to play a small role towards improving education at a grass routes level in the community closest to us.
Educational books, supplies and monetary donations are always in critical need and we would like to invite you to please donate any age-appropriate (3-13 years) books that you may have available, as well as any backpacks, stationery or other educational materials.
Please feel free to drop these off at our Tasting Room, or contact Campher Serfontein (Empowerment Project Chairperson) on firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
