The Michael Zulu Primary School was established in 1988 and is named after a prominent, value-adding businessman of the Tsakane Township. This state-owned primary school is located in Gauteng, and is a progressive educational institution, that supports diversity, and aims to provide the best possible education to its learners, ranging from Grade R to Grade 7.

With the challenges of inadequate budget allocations, feeding of children, classroom shortages, and day-to-day community, the Michael Zulu Primary School has looked to sponsors for support, which has since allowed them to build more classes, and provide further classes, including Special Needs and Smart classes.

The Michael Zulu Feeding Scheme

Plastic Bubbles has been a supporter of the Michael Zulu Primary School for several years. We donate kitchen goodies – plastic dessert bowls/mixing bowls/jugs/water bottles/basins/laundry baskets to be used in their schools’ kitchens to assist with their feeding scheme. These items are very handy in the pre-school kitchen and will be further distributed amongst their beneficiaries in the soup kitchen.

What this means to Plastic Bubbles

Having the means to provide for and assist those less fortunate really puts a smile on our face. We love nothing more than to know that more children can be fed, educated, and cared for with our help.

Enterprise Development and CSI The Michael Zulu Digital Learning Centre

In 2016, we supported the Michael Zulu school in its endeavor to build a much needed “Learning Centre” and an additional 2 classrooms. The students in Tsakane have benefited from the Learning Centre and additional two classrooms since January 2017.

The bricks to build both the Learning Centre and two classrooms were made by the workers at the school using a Hydraform Brick-Making machine which was donated to the “Ecclesia Centre Kwa-Thema” by Plastic Bubbles in 2015. The people who assisted with the Building Project have learnt the special skill of brickmaking with the machine purchased and have learnt other building skills which they will be able to utilise in the future.

What this means to Plastic Bubbles

At Plastic Bubbles we aim to create sustainable change through our enterprise development and CSI initiatives. We believe that through upskilling our community, we can help build a South Africa that is just and equitable
