The ENM Construction owner Thabo Mokoena says though he isn’t educated due to the past oppression system, he’s making sure that underprivileged children receive education.
Mokoena funded accommodation for 1594 grade 12 learners from the Thabo Mofutsanyana District, in the eastern Free State last year. He says he’s proud that the district received the highest pass rate of 88% in the province.
Mokoena was speaking at the Department of Education Well Done function in QwaQwa last week. He says he has been working together with school principals for the past three decades, funding disadvantaged pupils.
Mokoena advices people to start giving without expectations and in return they will also be given. He says he’s seeing results of his gesture.
“Education took a priority. Like our former president Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela said to us we should go back to school and receive the necessary education we needed as we have already found our freedom. Because in our time, we said freedom first and education after, it’s one of the reasons I’m doing this,” says Mokoena.
