Planact partners with Engen for education with dignity in Diepsloot
Planact in partnership with the Engen Corporate Social Investment (CSI) embarked on an eight-month task to transform the schooling facilities, by providing the most basic needs for children, many of whom live below the breadline in Diepsloot Senior Secondary School No.3
Planact played an administrative assistance role in this project to ensure that the construction of a borehole water supply, which surprisingly produces water from an aquifer was possible. The school was also provided with extra classrooms as well as a fully-fledged air-conditioned exam hall, a staff lounge, a library and a fully-fitted kitchen with water was possible.
Despite many challenges, the school has maintained a 100% matric pass rate over the past three years, courtesy of passionate and dedicated teaching staff and learners.
Planact looks forward to working with more corporate social investment partners to enhance community development across South Africa
