Support Engo FS on Omgie Casual Day  | News Article

Engo, in partnership with OFM and Bloemfontein Courant, is celebrating their first-ever Engo Omgie Casual Day on Friday, 29 October 2021.

Omgie is Engo's official mascot and ambassador at schools and his dream is to show others he cares. Engo wants to cultivate this culture not only among children of all ages but also among adults, by making them aware of caring for others.

To support Engo and the amazing work they do with children, disadvantaged communities and those who are elderly, sick or disabled, you can buy a colourful Omgie sticker for R20 per adult or R10 per child at any Engo centre, house or office in the Free State.

Then make sure you dress in “Colour me crazy” for this colourful ‘civvies’ day!

Engo encourages all schools, businesses, and the public to post the beautiful photos of your colourful outfits on Facebook on Omgie Day and tag ‘Engo Free State’.
