N2P Social Initiatives
At N2P we are passionate about people. The people that work with us, the families in the surrounding areas and the youth of South Africa.
We want to do our part in giving back and making our beautiful country a better place.
“Our purpose is to transform the culture of schools to change the trajectory of youth. We do this through a values based leadership programme”
N2P have partnered with Columba Leadership to implement two programmes in two selected schools in Queenstown, Eastern Cape. As this is the town where our head office is based, we wanted to be part of the change in creating opportunities for the youth through this leadership programme. This programme is over a 3-year period where they build the capacity of schools to embed values and youth engagement into the culture of their schools paving the way for learners to develop character, purpose and competence leadership and 21st century skills.
Fresh Water Drive
The ongoing water issues being experienced across South Africa can affect schools drastically. Fresh water tanks on the school property would ensure there is drinking water for pupils during water supply cuts. Along with many additional benefits, at N2P we felt that water access to schools is important for student’s health and their ability to learn.
N2P has installed fresh water tanks and gutters at three rural schools in Queenstown:
- Nonesi Primary School
- John Noah High School
- Nkwanca High School
Just Milk Academy
Just Milk Academy is an after-school educational program aimed at uplifting the children of the Just Milk staff by means of exposure to spoken and written English for Foundation and Intermediate Phase learners.
At Just Milk Academy, we aim to give these learners exposure to English from a mother tongue speaker to aid them in their learning. The Academy focuses on comprehension of English words and phrases and concentrates on the pronunciation of English words through song, rhyme and repetition. Incidental learning in other areas, such as Life Orientation and Numeracy are also achieved through the instruction at the Academy.
Zeni and Zikhona Faltein (Grade 3) whose mother works on Leeway are two girls who have attended the Academy since they were in Grade 1. When they first started at the Academy, they could not speak English. Both girls are now able to read basic English sentences and can follow instructions given in English.
Inganathi is one of our Grade 3 learners who has also been at the Academy since 2017 when he was in Grade 1. His mother works on Dalfreuch farm. Inganathi is a very polite young boy who is very eager to learn English. His English has improved steadily over his time at the Academy and he is confident in his oral ability.
Our aim is to provide a safe, fun and encouraging learning environment where second language English learners are able to gain English knowledge in an unthreatening environment. This knowledge will equip them with the skills they need to be able to have more opportunities available to them in the years ahead.
In the western cape, our Chalala piggery sponsored new kit to some locals and employees to participate in a local tournament. Soccer is loved by our employees and our community and we often see employees enjoying soccer during their lunch breaks on Site. Go, Seven Stars FC, Go!
