For Mandela Day on 18 July, his birthday, we heed the global call for humanitarian action in celebration of Nelson Mandela’s life and legacy by continuing to work towards access to education for all. We urge you to join in, #CapTheGap and make an urgent donation to tertiary students in South Africa whose education has been derailed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
I would like to pass my sincere gratitude to each and every individual that has stretched their hands for this great initiative to be a success. Your kindness has made a great impact in my life as an individual and I believe in the life of every student that has acquired the #CapTheGap resources during this most difficult time. May you never stop to change other people’s lives and may good things keep coming your way. Winston S. Churchill said “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” May your strengths be multiplied, and your pockets be much bigger. I really appreciate you!
