Project Welgemoed Primary School
Mandela Day 18 July 2022
The ASLA Foundation joined forces with the Perdekraal East Windfarm to celebrate Mandela Day supporting activities at the Welgemoed primary school. This farm school is situated in the far flunked rural areas of the Witzenberg region.
With great teamwork we managed to paint the inside of all the classrooms and treated the wooden floors with varnish. In addition, the school received sports equipment which was handed over to the principal and pupils. This initiative opened a new world for them as they never had the opportunity to play football, netball, and table tennis at their school.
A heartfelt thanks to the Mainstream Windfarms for their continued support.
Rosevalley Library Opening Ceremony
26 July 2022
The official opening of the public library took place on the 26th of July. The Minister of Cultural affairs and Sport, Ms Anroux Marais, the executive mayor, Christiaan Macpherson, and Pierre Blaauw (ASLA Foundation) have cut the ribbon and unveiled the plaque.
The ASLA Foundation contributed towards the multimillion-rand infrastructure project which was mainly funded by the Ministry of Cultural affairs and Sport of the Western Cape. We are indeed proud and honoured to be partnering with ministry to complete this crucial social infrastructure project.
The library and information centre will play a pivotal role in the enhancement of the community’s literacy, skill, and knowledge
We believe in the education of our youth and therefore we would like to thank all role players who have contributed towards this initiative.
Matjiesrivier Primary School
Social Infrastructure Investment
The ASLA Foundation and Mainstream SA, Perdekraal East (PTY) LTD joined forces to deliver much needed education facilities for children of Matjiesrivier Primary School, situated 40 km outside Ceres.
Perdekraal East Wind Farm, as part of their CSI programme, made it possible to add a new administration block, storeroom, kitchen, and ablution facilities to the current school building. This investment came at a time where the Department of Education faces financial difficulties to address the infrastructure backlog especially in the rural areas.
In addition to the building project, training was provided to the teachers and building contractor personnel for first aid and firefighting. The Foundation as project implementation partner was proud to hand over the certificates to the successful candidates.
The ASLA Foundation and Perdekraal East Wind Farm is thankful for the opportunity that we could make a sustainable impact in this rural community.
The Foundation is proud to be associated with renewable energy provider, Mainstream South Africa, and would like to continue with the partnership.
