TIMES ARE CHANGING FOR SIX KNEC STUDENTS

A cheque presentation of R150, 000.00 was made on 28 July 2022 by Kingdom Slots to Humana People to People in South Africa (HPPSA) and 6 KwaZulu Natal Experimental College (KNEC) students, for the Early Childhood Development (ECD) NQF Level 4 programme, will benefit from this donation. The donation will be managed by Humana People to People in South Africa, while the training for 6 students in Early Childhood Development (ECD) NQF Level 4 programme will be provided by the KwaZulu-Natal Experimental College (KNEC). HPPSA and KNEC have already agreed on the mechanism for identifying the most deserving youths to receive this scholarship, according to KNEC Principal, Simphiwe Stuurman. Besides benefiting the students, this scholarship will also benefit their communities and community-run preschools. 
 

HPPSA's Country Program Manager, Molatedi Diole, welcomed the eight representatives from Kingdom Slots, and HPPSA's Senior Partnership Manager, Mathews Tewesa, described the organization's programs, footprint, and history. Furthermore, the principal of KNEC explained how the institution empowers and trains students from poor backgrounds.

One of the six scholarship recipients, Thabo Magcaba, who is three weeks into the early childhood development programme at KNEC, expressed his gratitude. “I was fortunate to be introduced to this programme by one of the facilitators, Londeka Zimu, as she saw potential in me. The program has so far been a great experience for me, and I have learned a lot about teaching children under five and providing administrative support to preschool teachers. The scholarship will not only impact my life but will also benefit all the 6 students participating in the programme by equipping us with the necessary information and training us to become better teachers with a positive impact on our communities", says Thabo. 

“Thanks for the opportunity to partner with HPPSA. We really appreciate the work the organisation does and wish the organisation all the best going forward” said the Kingdom Slots CSI Compliance Manager, Deon Pillay. Kingdom Slots is registered as Grand Gaming KwaZulu-Natal (Pty) Ltd and is 70% owned by Sun International and 30% by GPI. The Kingdom Slots brand originated in 2003 with the vision of becoming the dominant operator of limited pay-out machines in KZN.
