- Mzansi actress Nomzamo Mbatha has made a big donation to a rural school in KZN, hoping to make education easier for hundreds of students
- Nomzamo collaborated with a local company to make sure that the school received computers
- She opened up about why she made this decision and is hoping it'll make a difference
Nomzamo Mbatha is very charitable and she has shown it once again. The popular actress has donated 20 desktop computers to a rural high school in KwaZulu-Natal and is beaming with pride because she was able to make it possible.
"I contacted Bet Software to assist me in donating desktops to a school in one of the most remote areas of KwaZulu Natal, eJozini," said Nomzamo.
The biggest reason why Nomzamo decided to make this donation is that she didn't have the luxury of it when she was still in high school.
"The high school I attended didn’t have computers for the greater part of my schooling years," she said.
Nomzamo said that it was only when she was in matric that a local company donated computers to her school and they had to learn how to use them fast. She spoke about how most of her essays were handwritten when she was still at school.
"All my essays and projects were handwritten, no matter the amount of pages. This affected my confidence when I got to university and having to adjust to using one for everything!" said Nomzamo.
The actress then commended the teacher who received the computers and her passion for the job. Nomzamo is hoping that the computers they donated will make a difference in children's lives.
