One of our own: Clarence Kachipande reporting on Greenfields Primary School
September 2013 The Greenfields project manager Clarence Kachipande says they continue to see significant (albeit laboured) progress on the school hall, which should now pick up after having recently secured structural mild steel and the services of a welder. He adds a significant amount of people, some of whom came through to the school on Mandela day, are doing their part and continue to do so, remaining committed to the spirit of LeadSA. Thanks again to Rototank for the water tank – promised and delivered in 24 hours; interior paint from Plascon, exterior paint from Duram and a special thanks to our listener Suren – after initially coming on radio and promising five heaters for the school, he organised another 35 more heaters for the school, and has installed all 40 heaters (meeting the school's entire needs) - an unsung hero. Well done Clarence Kachipande (GIfA's Treasurer) on this achievement.
