The no-fee school received a combination of pens and pencils to be used by the 1 000 learners that attend the school. The pens are distributed with the help of Brainwave and the Read Foundation.

“We want to adequately equip millions of young children with the relevant stationery tools to fulfil their basic educational needs,” said Karen Moodley, brand manager for stationery in southern, eastern and central Africa at Bic®.
