THE PRESIDENT'S WIFE VISITS BAKWENA BA MOGOPA
10 August 2015
Indeed the Bakwena Ba Mogopa community was blessed to play host to the Republic’s First Lady, Madam Tobeka Madiba Zuma and the Tobeka Madiba Zuma Foundation which brought the 2015 Women's Day celebration to Mmanotshe Moduane High School, nestled in the semi urban hub of Hebron under the jurisdiction of Kgosikgolo TRM Mamogale.
“The overriding theme for this year was to raise funds for Katlego Disabled Children's Home and proceeds for the fundraiser alongside the many other gifts and donations went towards the refurbishment and daily operations of the home.” emphasised Mr. A Mkhangala.
As an advocate and champion for women’s rights and good health, the Tobeka Madiba Zuma Foundation focuses primarily on Breast and Cervical Cancer, HIV/Aids and Tuberculosis awareness which our first lady emphasized in her Keynote to the community. The Foundation thus took the opportunity to also offer free medical screening, which included pap smears, HIV/Aids, high blood and blood pressure tests. Special thanks were forwarded to the MEC of Health in the North West Province, Dr. Masike who was also part of the overflowing guest list. “We encourage all women to actively go for screenings because detection is vital as we fight communicable diseases in society. Detection allows for intervention.” further stated Madam Zuma

GETTING INVOLVED THIS MANDELA DAY
20 July 2015
This Mandela Day, Bakwena Ba Mogopa Administration contributed 67 minutes of their time towards the global movement for good. The philanthropic day saw The Office of Kgosikgolo visiting Leutlwetse ECD Centre established in 2003 by Rev. M Tabane in Hebron. The Centre is a day care facility for destitute and impoverished children from Hebron and surrounding communities.
The Office of Kgosikgolo prepared soup dishes and samp for the children and spent the day preparing the soil and planting seedlings at the centre. The Centre houses approximately 400 children which are taken care of by a staff 59 working from 7:30 until 16:30. House visits are conducted on a scheduled basis to identify households that are in dire need for intervention – some of which are headed by grandparents, youth and even minors.
