KWANTU OUTREACH PROGRAMME
Kwantu Private Game Reserve is involved in a feeding program for a local primary schools aimed at stimulating community development and interaction among the people.
The program which involves the South African Police Service (SAPS), the Education Department and Kwantu Private Game Reserve has seen the restoration and building of public confidence on local government structures. Since the time the feeding programme was started, sources close to the three schools that have so far benefited from the feeding scheme that is carried once a week per school say that a number of kids have improved with their academic studies.
The initiative is also credited for seeing an increase in enrolment at these community oriented schools.
The sources revealed that some of the children were coming to school with out having consumed anything, a situation which tended to affect their performance in class.
Kwantu Private Game Reserve staff who coordinate the programme also have time to chat with the children, teachers and local police who come to supervise the programme.
Schools that have so far benefited are found in Alicedale and Seven Fountain areas.
