    THE spirit of humanity saw 183 needy

    learners of the Hani Park Primary School

    receiving a donation of shoes on their return

    to school for the third term on Monday.

    Putting a smile on each and every ones

    face, this was an initiative by four entrepre-

    neurs from Welkom. The initiative, as part of

    the donors social responsibility, benefited

    gr. 1 and gr. 2 learners.

    Grace Thoso, spokesperson and project

    initiator, said the fundraising had been

    initiated last month. Because of the good

    spirit the project was being conducted in, she

    was joined by others after she had not

    reached her target. Perth Mdladlamba,

    Modise Masiloane and Rubin Thoso heeded

    the call to help in purchasing shoes.

    The joint effort resulted in 183 pairs of

    shoes being collected.

    It triggered me to some degree to contrib-

    ute to our community after seeing how some

    children suffer. Many have a painful

    background and come to school barefoot and

    wondering where they will receive their next

    meal, said Thoso.

    People do extraordinary things for the

    community and I thought it would also work

    for me to do the same. Coming up with this

    project was a challenge. I was actually the

    test to see if people would be willing to help

    and support the idea.

    Nonetheless, I have the drive to make this

    project magic. I used different social media

    and word of mouth to engage people.

    Thoso was faced with the challenge of

    reaching his target and also donating shoes

    on the first day of the school re-opening for

    the third term. However, she received

    overwhelming response from businesses from

    as far as the Eastern Cape, Gauteng, Lesotho

    and elsewhere.

    I wasnt really expecting this kind of

    response, due to my time frame. It has blown

    my mind. I cant even express my emotions.

    I feel so blessed even these children are a

    blessing to me, as well as people who really

    opened their hearts.

    She said they were planning to donate

    more shoes to needy learners of the school.

    A thrilled Thoso told the learners their

    school had been selected because God guided

    them and that they should all remember that

    God worked in mysterious ways.

    I hope with this contribution well

    enhance the ethos of sharing among you.

    This is a lesson for all of you: Learn to share

    with your fellow classmates; if one doesnt

    have bread, share with them, she said.

    THREE superlative entrepreneurs from

    Welkom, the women Mantete Sithole, Matsho-

    lo Mokhampanyane and Khalala Mayekiso,

    have received a financial boost significant

    enough to make their piggery venture

    profitable.

    Their project, known as Peo Piggery, was

    awarded the second prize of R100 000 at this

    years EnterPRIZE Job Creation Challenge

    banquet held in Bloemfontein. It was chosen

    as one of the best corporatives in the final

    round of the entrepreneurship competition.

    The cooperative project was chosen from the

    769 entries in different categories received

    from all five districts across the Free State.

    Khalala Mayekiso, co-director, said the

    money was significant in enabling them to

    grow their business. She said part of the

    money would be spent on purchasing, among

    other things, gas heaters which are key to

    making their project productive. She said

    electricity supply to the piggery was a

    challenge due to the theft of electric cables.

    The piggery project has been operational

    for four years. According to Mayekiso, about

    R3 million is required to get their project to

    the required standard.

    This will offer us space to establish Peo

    Piggery as the preferred supplier of pork

    products, such as sausages, mince and ham,

    she said.

    The piggery triggered them to leave their

    full-time employment in teaching, driven by

    the desire to be financially independant, and

    entering an environment where food security

    and economic independence have potential to

    create wealth. They grew the stock up to 17

    in a year before turning to the piggery,

    which has overcome a trial-and-error period

    of four years.

    Mayekiso said they have been running the

    project from their own pockets.

    Mayekiso said motivated by their success

    thus far, they were planning to expand their

    business with the prospect to employ full-

    time drivers and packagers, which would

    create various job opportunities for the

    youth.

    Our business has a huge potential to grow

    in the agro-processing environment and offer

    sustainable jobs. We slaughter at an abattoir

    in Theunissen where we cut and package

    porkers for the market.

    Mayekiso revealed during an interview

    with Express Goldfields & NFS the recipe for

    success of their project.

    We work together in terms of managing

    and supporting one another in decision-mak-

    ing and we have sustained this thus far. We

    also study further about piggery to under-

    stand how to turn it around to become

    commercially viable.

    We have the potential despite the lack of

    funding.

    Mayekiso said they realised that, besides

    trading with butchers, there was a niche

    market for them in chesa nyama (barbecue or

    braai). She said they already have a market

    where they sell the piglets for a good price,

    depending on the point of sale.

    We are faced with the challenge of having

    our own land to run the business, said

    Mayekiso.
