“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” These are the wise words spoken by Nelson Mandela, which inspired ASL to support the Tereo Community School for Mandela Day.
We decided to all come together before the start of the work day and devote our 67 minutes to making a “lunch pack” for every child, which included a hotdog, cooldrink, fruit, something sweet and a toy. Then, at lunch time, we had the privilege of visiting the school and interacting with the children while handing out their lunch packs. We also had the privilege of listening to the children sing for us, which warmed our hearts.
The day was a celebration of Mandela’s life and legacy, as we continue to stand together to make South Africa a better place.
