On Wednesday, 31 January 2018 the Pupkewitz Foundation handed over four new classrooms and a multi –purpose room worth N$1.3 million to the Groot Aub Primary School.
The PUPKEWITZ FOUNDATION has been playing a strong role in maintaining educational facilities, towards assisting the Ministry of Education in achieving their infrastructural goal of alleviating the need for classrooms. The four new classrooms will enable the school to offer primary education to all the learners during the morning…
Many developing countries with constrained resources have adopted a double session system as a way to serve more students. However, it is only a short-term
solution, as the morning time classes yield more benefits in terms of overall performance.
Furthermore, as part of their ‘Future in the Bag’ project, PUPKEWITZ TOYOTA donated 300 school bags containing educational material, which the learners’
received with delight.
In her speech, Mrs Meryl Barry, Chief Executive Officer of the PUPKEWITZ FOUNDATION, said “It has become a tradition set by the example of the late Mr.
Harold Pupkewitz, known for his generosity that the Pupkewitz Family also donates to the communities in which we operate. In addition, having seen the desperate state of 14 non-functioning toilets since 2011 and judging from the unheard written appeals to the Ministry of Works, the Pupkewitz family decided to renovate the 14 toilet ablution block and staff toilets, to the material value of N$226,000.00.”
She further said, “The budget of N$6.950 million, just under 7 million, of the Pupkewitz Foundation, is fully funded by profits from the Pupkewitz Group of
Companies. Therefore we acknowledge our loyal customer support, which enables us to fund so many worthy projects and to implement countless programmes in
EDUCATION, HEALTH, COMMUNITY CARE, THE ENVIRONMENT, and CULTURE AND SPORT, with an increased annual budget.”
The PUPKEWITZ FOUNDATION’s strategy remains deliberates partnerships with Government and reputable non-profit organizations whose development goals are aimed at viable, innovative and sustainable solutions to national priorities.
