Toilets boost learners’ dignity

The learners of Manamani Primary School are excited about the new Amalooloo toilets donated by Bertram, a toilet manufacturing company. With them are Mpho Mathabathe (Bertram Project Manager), Mpfariseni Nemasiwana (Principal) and Tinyiko Nkuzana (Circuit Manager).

LIMPOPO – Principal of the school, Mpfariseni Nemasiwana, expressed his appreciation of the initiative, saying this will help to improve school attendance as well as the learners’ overall performance as classes will no longer be disrupted when learners have to go and relieve themselves in the nearby bushes.

“We hope learning and teaching will be conducive from now on thanks to this generous donation,” Nemasiwana said.

Project Manager of Bertram, Mpho Mathabathe, said they decided to make the donation because for almost three decades, over 560 children all under 12 years old, had to either run to an open veld close by or use the unsafe toilets to relieve themselves.

“We decided to act in light of the many cases which have made headlines where learners died due to unsafe ablution facilities. We wanted to help restore the dignity of the learners and improve school attendance,” Mathabathe said.

Mathabathe added the toilets are uniquely designed and fitted with child safety features. They offer advanced health and hygiene benefits that will protect children against sanitation-related diseases and give them privacy and safety that directly improve school attendance and dignity.
