“I don’t have much parental support but these similar pledges plays a big role in my life and I am very much happy,” said Kameya Dellem the learner at the school.
According to Gunther Von-Froncois, the owner of the fish shop, the donation will be a monthly social commitment that his shop will commit to the school.
“I need to give a chance to the vulnerable children to go to school with a tummy,” said Von-Froncois.
This is the third time in a year the fish shop has donated to the school.
