YOUNG ones from Thornhill Primary had reason to smile brightly on Nelson Mandela Day when they received shoes and stationery.

In celebration of Nelson Mandela Month and with the support of Ward Councillor Bulelwa Koliti, community members from Thornhill, church leaders and future leaders collected 20 pairs of shoes, pens, pencils and pencil cases for less fortunate children at Thornhill Primary.

“The project team is proud to say that they have changed someone’s life by giving him or her a chance to go to school and pursue his or her dreams,” said the Ward Councillor. “Education is the only way to get out of poverty. We hope and pray that this is not the last time such a project takes place. Our aim is to continue changing peoples’ lives in so many different ways.”

Tata Nelson Mandela once said, ‘It always seems impossible until it’s done’. With this in mind, the project team would like to thank each and every person who believed in them.

“This project came from the project team’s hearts. It had nothing to do with politics. It was about doing something to help another human being,” she concluded.
