Polokwane Chemical Suppliers (PCS), as
part of their corporate social investment
programme, handed over toiletries
to disadvantaged learners at Kabelo
Secondary School in Polokwane on July
According to PCS marketing manager,
Maggie Mampane, the gesture was
aimed at making a difference in the lives
of the learners at the school. “We have
given them toothpaste, bath soap and
toothbrushes. We are doing this because
we want our youth to remain motivated
and have a vision for a better tomorrow.”
Teacher at the school Pheladi Moloto said
they are grateful to PCS for the gesture.
“Most of the learners at the school are
from child-headed families and this will
be handy and it will definitely make a
difference in their lives.”
The company also announced Mulalo
Nemataheni from Impowerx Advisory
Services as the winner of the Bucket of

Mampane said they were impressed by

she is a visionary. We were impressed by
her overall work. She is passionate and
