Poo said careers in maths and science help South Africa compete with the best in the world.
"The process of developing a workforce starts in our schools and that is why educating South Africa's children is vitally important," she said.
The manager applauded the joint venture between Telkom Foundation and the University of Venda through which deep rural schools in the Vhembe region were identified for the project.
"Students study with our bursaries; learners discover the power of the internet with our equipment and our network while teachers sharpen their skills by participating in our programmes.
"MyLab Chemistry & Science Kits put the necessary apparatus at the disposal of teachers, and allow them to do the practical work in maths and sciences, which are scarce resources," added Poo.
Albert Mabasa, a teacher from Shingwedzi Secondary School near Malamulele, said he was happy to receive the mobile lab on behalf of his school.
"Our learners eagerly need best equipment to be able to produce best results in maths and sciences and the donation of kits will help deep rural learners in this regard," said Mabasa.
"We promise the Telkom Foundation that with the kits we hope to improve matric results in rural schools across the Vhembe region."
