“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” – Nelson Mandela

Mandela Day - Day #1 2015

On Thursday, 16 July 2015 a small group of volunteers went to Zamani Day Care Centre in Orange Farm to start with the preparations for Mandela Day 2015.

We wanted to give the walls some colour. We decided on a theme for each classroom (transport, bugs and flowers, under the sea, and a bear picnic) and started working on the drawings. We wanted to get as much done as possible in order for the rest of the team to start painting early the next day.

We got wooden plank wall hooks made for each classroom. Our handy women installed it in all the classrooms. Our volunteers are definitely not scared to get their hands dirty!
