WIND FARM PROVIDES C-19 PPE TO LOCAL NORTHERN CAPE RURAL TVET COLLEGE
Springbok, Northern Cape: April 2021
Kangnas Wind Farm’s donation of COVID-19 safety and hygiene products to the Northern Cape Rural TVET College, Namaqualand Campus, meant that the institution has been able to teach in a safe environment.
The wind farm provided funding for nearly a thousand branded fabric masks in addition to bulk quantities of hand sanitizer and other hygiene and disinfecting products.
NCR TVET College Campus manager, Danna Boyce, expressed gratitude saying, “The donation is enabling us to ensure that all our surfaces, classrooms and ablution facilities are cleaned and sanitised. Plus, students and staff are protected by wearing the masks. We also believe that this will ensure that we maintain good and effective hygiene practices in the future.”
As an institution, it has the responsibility of securing and safeguarding its students, but budget constraints placed a limit on their efforts.
“The TVET College 2021 academic year started mid-January 2021, amidst South Africa’s second wave of CV-19, which placed a great deal of strain, physically, emotionally and financially on many, which is why we are pleased to be able to provide the necessary product,” concluded Cheryl Persensie, Economic Development Manager at Kangnas Wind Farm.
