As part of the back to school campaign, Deputy Minister of Social Development Ms. Hendrietta Bogopane-Zulu will on Wednesday, 03 March  2021 visit Myayiza and Emadlangeni Primary schools to hand over back to school packs in partnership with MTN Foundation.


This outreach is in line with President Ramaphosa’s call for a new district based coordination model, which is about addressing service delivery, and economic development challenges through synchronised planning across all spheres of Government. In terms of the District Development Model, Government is expected to work together with social partners such as the Business Sector, Civil Society Organisations and Communities to enhance service delivery.


To this effect, the President appointed District Model Champions in various districts of the country and Deputy Minister Bogopane-Zulu is deployed as District Champion in Amajuba under the District Development Model and will use the visit to engage local communities on service delivery related matters.


MTN Foundation’s purpose is to bring about meaningful, measurable and sustainable change that helps disadvantaged and rural communities to become self-sufficient.


South Africa remains under adjusted Level 1 of the National Lockdown learners and teachers are encouraged to wear their masks, keep to social distancing and wash or sanitise their hands regularly.
