Leoka keeps the Ledig scholars warm

A well-known African proverb states, “It takes a village to raise a child.” which is why, on Wednesday, June 15, Leoka Engineering, in collaboration with Anglo American South Africa ran a Winter Drive.
Children attending Bothibelelo Primary School, Khayalethu Secondary School, Motlhare Mokaute Secondary School, B.F. Morake Primary School, and Monakato Primary School in Rustenburg received winter uniforms as part of this initiative to prevent students from missing any classes because of the inclement weather, learners received new pairs of school shoes and tracksuits.

Youth month serves as a reminder of the economic damage that has been done to previously marginalised groups, and particularly underprivileged children in South Africa.
Helping the most vulnerable members of society contributes to human rights and needs being met. Human rights should not be a privilege that is earned. The right to an education is one of these rights. By providing these students with uniforms, Leoka and Anglo American are contributing to the gradual breaking down of the barriers that prevent our youth from becoming adults who will uplift their communities.

“By giving back to our communities, we can demonstrate that change is more than possible when people care and work together, and this inspires others to join in the effort of creating a society where our youth can break not only themselves, but their communities out of the cycle of poverty.” Leoka Engineering’s Head of Corporate Affairs, Motlatsi Makgata.

Leoka takes great satisfaction in making a positive difference in the lives of others. The success of Leoka goes far beyond financial performance, expansion, and brand recognition. Corporate Social Responsibility programmes at Leoka and Anglo-American aim to give back to the community, get involved in philanthropic endeavors, and add tangible and lasting value to society.

“Education empowers young people at a time when they are most hopeful, experimental and flexible in their lives, and we should embrace this life stage as one to empower young people to take charge of their lives and our collective future.” – President Cyril Ramaphosa
