BLIND MAN SWIMS FOR PULA-DIFATE PRIMARY SCHOOL, MAMELODI - 7/2/15 (COMPLETED)

Personal message

I AM COMPETING IN THE MIDMAR MILE 2015

 

My name is Hentie Nortjé.  I am living and working in Pretoria since 1988.  I have been blind since birth.  I have been blessed in many a way since my childhood as a disabled person and am I therefore always aware of the numerous difficulties some children are faced with in our wonderful country on a daily basis. 

 

I am a practicing attorney, a co-partner of a guesthouse in Lynnwood and also a DA councillor in the City of Tshwane Metro.  As a councillor, I am currently part of the DA's Mamelodi constituency.  It was through my activities in this constituency that I have met with the principal of the Pula-Difate Primary School, situated in Mamelodi-East.

 

I was highly motivated by the positive attitude of the principal, teachers, administrative personnel and learners of the Pula-Difate Primary School and would like to make a small contribution to the daily expenses of this institution.

 

We all know that we are currently living in challenging financial times.  As most households, schools and other institutions, the Pula-Difate Primary School also has its own financial challenges.  It is because of this reason that I have decided to swim my 15th consecutive Midmar Mile on the 7th of February 2015 with the goal to collect funds for the Pula-Difate Primary School. 

 

I have a great passion for children and would be grateful if you will kindly support my effort in this regard to make a small difference in the lives of the pupils of the Pula-Difate Primary School.  Let us not forget that today's children are tomorrow's leaders!  Please support my project through the Backabuddy System.  I have also launched similar projects during 2013 and 2014.  See  : http://www.backabuddy.co.za/deaf-children2013thiscampaignisnowcomplete  &  http://www.backabuddy.co.za/blind-man-swims-for-disabled-children-

Pula-Difate Primary School, Mamelodi.

Pula-Difate Primary School, Mamelodi. Logo

Pula-Difate Primary School is located in Mamelodi East, close to YMCA and SOS. It has been established in 1976, with enrollment of 700 learners from the areas around it. The school currently has registered 640 learners starting from Grade R -7.The decrease of learners came as a result of new developing areas in the far East . However, we do have learners from Mamelodi Far East whose parents chose to register them at Pula-Difate.
