The perilous 1,000-mile journey to save Africa’s endangered black rhinos

The SA College for Tourism staff and students decided to give more than 67 minutes of their time for a good cause and spent two days brightening up children’s lives by painting their classroom.
In November 2011, the Progressive Ikamva Combined Special School was launched by Mrs Henley and other parents from the community, who have children with disabilities. No facilities for children with special needs existed in Graaff- Reinet at the time.
The school is an emerging multi-racial institution aimed at providing a wide range of services ranging from caring, to education and training.The vision of the school is to offer an integrated education system and to afford the children a better future by building support systems for them and their teachers.The school implements skills development programmes for pre-schoolers and for children of school-going age.
Nelson Mandela International Day was launched in recognition of Nelson Mandela’s birthday on 18 July, 2009 via a unanimous decision of the UN General Assembly. It was inspired by a call Nelson Mandela made a year earlier, for the next generation to take on the burden of leadership in addressing the world’s social injustices when he said that ‘it is in your hands now’. The day is more than a celebration of Madiba’s life and legacy. It is a global movement to honour his life’s work and act to change the world for the better.
By devoting 67 minutes of their time – one minute for every year of Nelson Mandela’s public service – people can make a small gesture of solidarity with humanity and a step towards a global movement for good.
