	EMFUNDISWENI, an old Alexandra primary school, will this year become a Model C school, a milestone Alexandra has never had since its birth. This revelation was made during the meeting last week on Sunday at the school premises, by Justice Maphosa, CEO of Big Time Strategic Group, in collaboration with George Moyo, the chairman of Respect & Ubuntu Foundation. The two respected black businessmen had donated R100 000 last year to the school, but they said the money was tantamount to nothing as the school needed a complete change. According to Maphosa, the purpose of the meeting, which was attended by the members of SGB, teachers and the media, was to adopt the school as their own.</p>

	“We are here to liberate our children, to be able to say as Africans, we have liberated each other. We are here to maintain the status quo as black people that there’s nothing wrong with us, we can do everything ourselves. We are here to maintain the goodness of being black and to serve our community. SA has been liberated since 1994, there’s actually 22 years down the line, it means something. These children are mine from now on. When they are hungry, tell me that they are hungry, we don’t have money, but we will use whatever we got, because this is the legacy we want to see behind.” Maphosa promised to install 40 computers (computer lab), paint the entire school, install a new form of security, where CCTV cameras will be used to monitor the premises. He also promised them E-learning, where crayons and chalk boards would be the things of the past. He said some of the things they might not be able to do in the first year.</p>

	“Some projects would have to be diverted to the next of the third year. We are bringing the Model C School here and where the parent would say, that school is enough for my kid. Enough of a black child going to high school without touching the keyboard of the computer, not knowing what is Excel or Word.” “We are bringing the new order,” said Maphosa who hails from Pretoria. “Let’s write about the school since this is not about me. I am just an angry man and one day I’m going to account to God. When you empower one child via education, you have transformed the household, the community and you have grown the leader into the future,” he said.</p>
