Today (February 2019), the staff at St. John’s were left speechless and exhilarated after receiving a generous donation of five desktop computers along with all the accessories, courtesy of Investec Bank Limited in Sandton, South Africa. We (Gray Family) are so grateful to our friend, Bruce Humphries for helping us make this donation come to fruition for St. Johns!
The computers were a long-awaited answer to prayer for all of the staff and children. With over forty staff members sharing two computers for all of their work-related demands, getting their reports done on time was often a stressful matter. However, thanks to Investec’s generosity this is no longer the case!
Program Manager, Patrica Marite expressed that the outreach center will now be able to have the opportunity to teach the children how to use a computer and develop in their personal computer skills. It is her hope that computers will be a great educational benefit for them; transforming their lives educationally as well as providing them with a greater opportunity for future employment.
A big thank you to Ms. Lumka Tshiki, Corporate Social Investment at Investec Bank Limited as well as Mr. Bruce Humphries, Facilities, at Investec for all of their time and support in making this donation a reality. We are truly grateful to you!
