The Colours of Hope team was warmly received by Mr Mkhize, principal of JCPS who arranged for the children to be in the assembly area within minutes. A well planned itinerary was delightfully executed by the learners from Grades 1 to 7, commemorating Nelson Mandela.
The program ended with Sa’uda Ismail, CEO of Colours of Hope addressing the children. Her speech began with Mandela’s quotes “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” She urged children to go beyond seeking knowledge for material gain alone. Her speech was based on this, “The power of education extends beyond the development of skills we need for economic success. It can contribute to nation-building and reconciliation”- Nelson Mandela. Ismail spoke about the importance of uplifting each other, being kind and explaining terms like compassion and empathy. What a better way to commemorate Mandela Day.
Thereafter a pair of gloves and a snack was handed out to each learner. We look forward to our next meeting with the school and staff of Jobstown Primary.
Help us empower these learners by making their educational journey a beneficial one.
