Business-education partnership makes literacy a reality at Ceres school

Learners at Nduli Primary School in Ceres, can read, learn and grow thanks to a powerful partnership enabled by Citizen Leader Lab.

In 2022, Principal Fezeka Lethunya joined Citizen Leader Lab’s flagship leadership development programme, Partners for Possibility, where she was partnered for the year-long programme with business leader Maddy Ross.

The programme gives school principals the support and skills needed to confidently lead change and mobilise communities around their schools, while business leaders hone their own leadership skills within a complex and challenging school environment.

One of the projects the pair initiated during their year together was a brand new, fully stocked library which opened its doors to the learners in November of the same year.

The library, which has fast become the centre of literacy and learning at the school, is one of the many sustainable projects Lethunya and Ross have implemented towards creating a conducive teaching and learning environment at Nduli.
