Thanks to Bayport Botswana, second-hand printers are being put to good use at a school in Molepolole.
Moruakgomo Junior Secondary School is located in the Matlhalerwa Ward of Molepolole village, home to one of Bayport Botswana’s 15 branches. “Most of our pupils are from low income households, and the school itself is not well funded,” says the school principal, Ms Galeitse.
A lack of access to information and communication technology contributed to the school’s low grades in past JCE examinations. “For example, due to a faulty printer, we couldn’t print enough past test papers to help the students prepare for exams,” says Ms Galeitse. Responding to the school’s request for assistance, Bayport Botswana management donated four printers, five containers of toner and two boxes of A4 printing paper.
The school’s teachers and support staff all received goodie bags containing Bayport merchandise, Money Solutions flyers and agent business cards. When handing over the printers, Bayport’s regional sales manager, Mmapula Kablay, mentioned that she was a Molepolole native and was honoured to be able to contribute to her community. “To the teachers, thank you for all you do for these students. We know how hard Covid-19 hit you. We are forever grateful for what you do for the students despite all the challenges you face,” said Mmapula.
