Lesedi FM, in partnership with Ellis Electronics, has given away five solar geysers to the needy organisations in Soweto and Sebokeng. The station broadcast its mid-morning show ‘Mathemalodi’ live in honour of the occasion.
This is a follow-up to the Geyser Project that started in Bloemfontein in the Free State Province, where eight geysers were donated to different organisations in dire need. An announcement was made on-air encouraging people to submit their requests for geysers and after a thorough selection process, Nkanyezi Stimulation Centre and Tshepo Themba Secondary School were chosen. Nkanyezi Stimulation Centre is a school for the disabled that caters for 40 students in Soweto and Tshepo Themba Secondary is a public school that has 850 pupils.
“This station is passionate about caring and rewarding its listeners through its efforts of combating poverty across South Africa. This is one of many campaigns with our partners through recognising the need to restore human dignity for ordinary South Africans,” says Puleng Thulo, station manager. “Our efforts as Lesedi FM will not be limited to this project only especially bearing in mind our reach of 4 million listeners on weekly/daily basis, we will continue to appeal to companies to partner with us in improving living conditions of our people.”
