We love that Mandela day comes along mid-year since it is the perfect time to shake up the team and do something amazing for others.
To commemorate what Nelson Mandela contributed to South Africa and Africa at large, we decided to partner with Fix Forward (http://fixforward.com/) and give back to Parkview Primary in Atlantis; Western Cape. This school was one of the recipients of complete school upgrades as part of the National Department of Basic Education’s Accelerated Schools Infrastructure Delivery Initiative (ASIDI) programme which included media centres, art rooms, courtyards, sports fields and so much more. There is no doubt that these type of initiatives are the best way to make sure that the future of SA is bright for our youth as the core fundamentals are taken care of.
As the Markham team, we were more than ready to go and check out the changes made to Parkview Primary, and since winter is in full force, served soup to the kids as well as supplying stationery packs. The Fix Forward team painted the school hall and other amenities. We were super surprised to see how amazing the school had turned out and how the teachers and pupils were benefiting greatly from this initiative.
We’d like to give a huge shout-out to Parkview Primary School, Fix Forward and the entire Markham team.
May we all remember the spirit of #MadibaDay and continue to serve and do good in order to better our communities #BeTheLegacy
