Jecy Kalume, long-time resident and member of the Mother of Peace Community received a R10 000 sponsorship boost from SPARK Media to enable him to attend business school and further his studies.
“This year, instead of the traditional client Christmas gifts, we will be adding to the sponsorship of Jecy’s future education to make his dream a reality,” says Joint CEO of SPARK Media, Gill Randall.
“We feel that he has earned this sponsorship by evidence of his hard work and dedication at school, backed by his ever infectious enthusiasm for everything that he does. His intention has always been to study further and we believe that with our support he will become a considerable asset to his community and to the local business industry.”
Jecy is originally from the Congo DRC. He grew up with his grandparents in Johannesburg. Due to their elderly state, Jecy entered the community of Mother of Peace in Northriding. Proving to be a conscientious student, and a hard working community member eagerly assisting with daily errands, he has earned to opportunity to take his education to the next level.
“This sponsorship forms part of our overall corporate social investment programme strategy to enable and educate possible future business leaders,” concludes Randall. “We look forward to seeing Jecy grow from strength to strength in any of the business fields that he chooses and we will be keeping a close eye on his progress.”
Mother of Peace Northriding is the smallest of the three foster homes and is run by a group of volunteers who dedicate their lives to looking after 24 amazing children. The home’s aim is to provide children with an opportunity to live within a structured family environment, be cared for, nurtured and loved. Children are fostered by full-time, dedicated and committed members of the Community.
