UNICEF is joining South African 🇿🇦 education stakeholders when they met to pump up society and rally it to action regarding the protection of schools.
The South African Democratic Teachers’ Union (SADTU), which happens to be the biggest union in the education and public service sector, incollaboration with the National Education Collaboration Trust (NECT)and UNICEF South Africa, are on a campaign to protect schools’ infrastructure.
And this collaboration stems from SADTU’s “I AM A SCHOOL FAN” campaign intended to mobilise all stakeholders which include learners, parents, teachers, community members, relevant government departments, faith-based organisations, and the private sector to play a decisive role towards ensuring that schools are safe.
Moreover, the July 2021 “riots” and the recent floods in KwaZulu-Natal further illuminated the infrastructure challenges in our schools.
The meeting will be held at Mzuvele Secondary School, 1 Klolo Road, KwaMashu in Durban.
