The ‟Nelson Mandela No-Moscow Primary School” has opened its doors!

19/03/2013
 The time has come: Succeeding 9 months, the ‟Nelson Mandela No-Moscow Primary School” in Qunu, South Africa, is now complete.The Lyoness Child & Family Foundation and the Lyoness Child & Family Foundation South Africa, celebrated the grand opening on March 15th, 2013. 

The Mandela Family supports the CFF

The “Nelson Mandela No-Moscow Primary School” is located in the home town of the famous Nobel Peace Prize Winner and one-time South African President, Nelson Mandela. The School was in desperate need of renovation due to severe damages caused by a storm in 2002. The storm demolished windows, rooftops, walls, furniture, and learning materials. All of these damages impeded every day school life. The Child & Family Foundation made the conscious decision to build a new school. Since then, The Child & Family Foundation has received support from Nelson Mandela and his grandson, Mbuso.

A modern school for 230 children

Since the School has been rebuilt, its 230 students now have; seven new classrooms, modern bathrooms, a conference room, a library, a kitchen, an arts & crafts room, a playground and new learning materials. 30 Lyoness members gathered together to help complete the project. The volunteers helped with painting, decorating, planting, and many other tasks. The CFF is delighted with the successful completion of this project. The children of Qunu, South Africa, will once again have an ethical learning environment. 

Lyoness.TV was also present

The celebrations were of course filmed by Lyoness.TV. You can see them for yourself – in the next Lyoness.TV broadcast on March 26th, 2013 at www.lyoness.tv!
