Date Released: Fri, 11 October 2013 11:32 +0200

Mapula Maponya has volunteered at little flower preschool, raglan road pre-school and tylilulwazi pre-school. She is the Oppidan community engagement representative, the Golden Key CE representative and this is her second year serving as a student leader for Little Flower. Mapula has contributed immensely to the student volunteer programme, assisting with student training and actively encouraging new volunteers and mentoring new volunteers. After joining the SVP and working within early childhood education, Mapula decided to take her lessons back home to Limpopo, running a book drive. The overwhelming response she received has led her to establish  the “Lesedi Literacy and Early Childhood Education Project”, a programme encouraging reading and improving literacy in primary schools.
