Emalahleni Housing Company kick-started the new year on a high note by donating 250 school bags to local schools in line with its “Back to School” and “Breadtags for Wheelchairs” projects.
The project was rolled out early in 2016 and the participating schools collected more than 84000 breadtags for recycling. EHC is one of the many national participants in the “Breadtags for Wheelchairs” project managed by the Polystyrene Packaging Council of South Africa. The breadtags are sold to a network of buyers and the proceeds are utilised to purchase wheelchairs for the disabled. Learners from Maloma Primary School and Zacheus Malaza and Ilanga Secondary Schools who participated in the project received a school bag with stationery for their efforts and dedication in collecting breadtags throughout the year.
In addition, EHC donated photocopiers to Maloma Primary School and Zacheus Malaza Secondary School in acknowledgement of their collections being the highest.
Other schools who wish to participate in the “Breadtags for Wheelchairs” project in collaboration with EHC are welcome to contact their offices on (013) 690 1372
