“Since 2009, the programme has evolved through different projects including Science Kits Projects which has to date benefitted 210 schools throughout the Province of KwaZulu-Natal,” said Nkonyeni.
Nkonyeni added that over 6000 school children benefitted from her office’s social responsibility programmes.
