Mnquma Local Municipality hosted a "Back to School Campaign”on the 08th March 2016 at Msobomvu Community Hall. The municipality identified a need to play a crucial role in helping underprivileged school children, attending school on daily basis without decent school uniform.  This annual initiative targets disadvantaged children from disadvantaged backgrounds in Butterworth, Ngqamakhwe and Centane as education is one of the municipality’s social responsibilities.

The Executive Mayor, Councillor B. Ganjana handed over school uniforms and other forms of education material to 90 learners. The handover is part of the ongoing Mayoral Outreach which seeks to increase service delivery foot print and further improve the lives of poor communities in Mnquma
