Batlharos, Friday 29 January 2016 – Today, Brand South Africa in partnership with Shout SA and Breadline Africa handed over a newly built, and fully equipped mobile library to the learners and teachers at TT Lekalake Primary School.The handover ceremony was attended by members of the community, parents as well as representatives from neighboring schools. Mr Tumisang Rabi, principle of TT Lekalake said “this library is not only a facility for the learners of this school, it is a resource for the community at large. It is impossible for a community to grow and improve without proper literacy skills. This library will instill a love for reading in the smallest of children. It is very important for young children to learn to love reading, as this is a primary skill to ensure success not only in later grades, but also in life in general.”Ms Jade Orgill, Project Manager at Breadline Africa articulated the importance for the library for TT Lekalake in particular, “This school is a government quintile 1 school, which means that they are the least resourced as per government’s poverty quintile ranking. The lack of access usually translates into low literacy level such as is the case at TT Lekalake. One of the positive measures currently in place is the learner development programme that has been initiated by the governing body, teachers and parents.” This programme is just one example of the active steps taken by the community of Batlharos to improve the state of education in the district.The National Development Plan (NDP) mentions that education is a prerequisite for South Africa’s development, and the community in Batharos encourages learners to be dedicated, studious and focused children is response to this.Circuit Manager of John Taoco Gaetsewe District, Mr Mpho Malele encouraged parents to play their part and “make reading a priority at home. Initially the children will read a slowly and get frustrated, but it is important to encourage them to persevere, because the more they read, the better they will read and the faster they will read. The Department of Basic Education has instituted a compulsory reading period for all schools, teachers need to set small goals for their learners throughout the year, which will contribute to the improvement of the literacy levels in the district.”Mr Malele called on the community at large to play their part and support education initiatives in the community, “by attending school events, you are showing the children that you are committed and care about their education, which will instill the same values in them.”The 2014 Annual National Assessment (ANA) Results revealed that there is a significant gap between children reading, understanding and interpreting information. The library resource at TT Lakeleke combined with the commitment of learners and teachers aims to bridge this gap – improving the academic results of the school, and creating better opportunities for the learners as they progress into adulthood.Kabelo Mabelane co-founder of Shout SA, wrapped up the programme by calling on the children to stay in school, respect their teachers, and read! “Readers are Leaders, Mabalane said, and Leaders are Readers! We all need to play our part and develop a love of reading in our communities”.Follow the conversation on #EducateSAAbout Brand South AfricaBrand South Africa is the official marketing agency of South Africa, with a mandate to build the country’s brand reputation, in order to improve its global competitiveness.

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath Sunday asked the Congress where were the well-wishers of farmers during 2012-17 when they faced starvation. The chief minister posed the query shortly after Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra launched a blistering attack on the UP government over alleged unpaid dues to the tune of Rs 10,000 crore to sugarcane farmers. “When our government was formed, the pending cane dues were around Rs 57,800 crore. The amount was bigger than the budgets of many states. But we paid it,” asserted Adityanath. “In the previous regimes of the SP and BSP, nothing was done for the sugarcane farmers, (and) as a result, they died of starvation (bhukhmari),” he added. Earlier during the day, Priyanka Gandhi had attacked the state government over the alleged unpaid dues of sugarcane farmers, claiming in a tweet that ‘chowkidars’ (watchmen) were only working for the rich, not for the poor. The UP chief minister struck back and asked, “Where were the so-called well-wishers of the farmers from 2012 to 2017, when the farmers were on the brink of starvation. Why have they woken up from their slumber now?” Seeking to put the records straight, he said, “The sugarcane cultivation area in the state has increased by 22 per cent to 28 lakh hectare, and a number of closed sugar mills have been restarted. The farmers are happy (khushaal) now.” Sharing a media report on Twitter, Priyanka Gandhi had claimed that dues of sugarcane farmers had crossed Rs 10,000 crore in the state. “The families of sugarcane farmers toil day and night but the Uttar Pradesh government does not even take the responsibility of paying their dues,” she had said. “Rs 10,000 crore of farmers’ dues means everything, including their children’s education, food, health, and the next produce comes to a standstill. These chowkidars only work for the rich and do not care about the poor,” she had claimed. Priyanka Gandhi was recently appointed the Congress general secretary for eastern Uttar Pradesh.
