5-Year-Old Collects School Shoes
5-year-old, Orefile Mogorosi is currently raising funds for school shoes which she will be donating to primary school learners in Kimberley.
She intends to hand over boxes of school shoes to 30 learners at Sol Plaatje primary school. Orefile is part of the Emodel agency and started modeling at the Market at Flamingo event where she came out as the 1st Princess for the 2018 Spring Pageant. Her first gig sparked great interest in modeling as she went on to pursue other beauty pageants in Johannesburg and Bloemfontein, where she was selected as a Miss Petite Vrystraat finalist.
Mandy de Klerk, the co-chief executive officer at Orefile’s modeling agency, eModels, crowned her track record and current pursuit of the good deed.
“Orefile is a baby model at eModels Kimberley. She loves pageantry and is excelling at it, winning numerous titles in different local pageants. Orefile’s latest is in achieving a role as a finalist for Miss Vrystaat Arts Festival in Bloemfontein. It is a working title which means they have to do charity work as well. One of her charities is collecting school shoes for the underprivileged. We at eModels Kimberley are very proud of this little princess,” her enthused mentor, Mandy explained.
Her mother Naledi Mogorosi exclaimed how happy she is that her daughter is doing such a great initiative, “I am happy for her, she asked that we collect shoes for children who don’t have the privilege of being bought new pairs of shoes”. Orefile has managed to raise 20 pairs of school shoes and would like to increase the amount of shoes to 50 pairs every quarter.
“Mommy and I have collected 20 pairs of shoes but I want us to get to 50 pairs for every quarter so that the other kids don’t have to stay at home because they don’t have shoes”.
Orefile is not only a model but also does ballet and gymnastics. The young girl would like to encourage the public to take part in the shoe drive by donating school shoes from size 12-5. The shoes can be dropped off at the Solomon Star premises (2 Chapel Street, Kimberley) or through contacting Naledi Mogorosi on 061 825 8072.
