Ligno Vitae Academy was nominated as a recipient of the Public Protector

Ligno Vitae Academy was nominated as a recipient of the Public Protector’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSI) initiative. The Academy received a donation of R 20000-00 on the 14th of January 2016 at a ceremony held on the school premises. The aim of the CSI initiative is to encourage positive actions and impact in the education sector, especially focusing on Autism.

Speaking at the ceremony, Public Protector Thuli Madonsela said she wasn’t just donating money, but also raising awareness about Autism. “We must raise awareness and tell people about Autism. A lot of children with Autism are sitting at home because parents aren’t aware of it. A lack of support and facilities are the key challenges we face when it comes to autism, especially in the black communities. “

Thuli Madonsela expressed her gratitude towards Ligno Vitae Academy for hosting the Autism Awareness event and for the support and contribution they make daily towards children with learning disabilities.
