MySchool and FTFA

In 2017 a total of 98 trees were donated through MySchool donations to Food & Trees for Africa. These trees were allocated to four schools around Johannesburg, who received a combination of fruit and indigenous shade trees. Learners got involved in planting the trees and were really excited to contribute to the greening of their school grounds. Refhitile Primary in Shoshaguve received fruit trees only, to establish an orchard on the property.

Trees were allocated to the following schools:

Province Area Beneficiary Number of trees Tree Types
Gauteng Hammanskraal Mmamotsa Primary School 30 Indigenous Shade Trees
Gauteng Orange Farm Itemoheng Primary School 27 Indigenous Shade Trees
Gauteng Shoshanguve Refitlhile Primary School 21 Fruit Trees
Gauteng Hammanskraal Sekhululekile High School 20 Indigenous Shade Trees

 

 

Thank You, to all of those people who have nominated FTFA as a beneficiary on their MySchool card. You have made a real difference to these schools. We are hoping to reach at least 8 beneficiary schools through MySchool donations in 2018 – nominate FTFA as a beneficiary on your MySchool card and help us achieve our goal.
