Today we’re bereft as our nation – along with the rest of the world – mourns the passing of our beloved Madiba, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, the first President of a democratic and free South Africa: one of the most admired and inspiring human beings to walk this earth.
We know that you share our loss, and thank you for your thoughts and wishes. If like us, you would like to mark this moment in some way, we would greatly appreciate contributions to our library and classroom container fun
As many of you know, Breadline Africa has been working with the Mandela Centre of Memory in rolling out our special Mandela libraries to the poorest and most isolated schools in our country.
Many of you have supported this amazing project, for which we’re hugely grateful, and we’d like to assure you that we will keep this project going, as a living testament to the great man himself. Mr Mandela was an ardent supporter of reading and literacy projects, and believed passionately in education as the only sure route to a better life.
We’re committed to keeping the flame of his legacy burning. And so we’re going to keep on sending container libraries and classrooms to where they’re needed most – where the next Nelson Mandela, a future great leader, may be sitting at his or her desk.
