Potjie prize adds value to Dagbreek
Following the very successful charity potjiekos competition hosted by Pick ‘n Pay earlier this month, Dagbreek School for the Impaired was the charity of choice for the winning team.
Called “Potjie with a Purpose”, Pick n Pay hosted this competition for local companies early in November with the idea that the winning team chose a charity to receive the grand prize.
The 7 Stars team from Taeuber & Corssen won the potjiekos competition and chose Dagbreek School for the Intellectually Impaired as the recipient of the N$50,000 prize money.
‘Potjie With A Purpose’ was brought to life as a fundraising initiative by Pick n Pay in which the companies compete against each other in a ‘potjie’ cook-off to raise funds for a charity of their choice. The fundraising event is one of Pick n Pay’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives in contribution to and support of the O&L purpose of ‘Creating a future, Enhancing life’ for all Namibians.
Dagbreek accommodates learners between the ages of 7 and 18 years and delivers a specialized service in teaching and development of learners who are intellectually disabled, which includes learners with Down’s syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Cerebral Palsy, and other debilitating conditions.
