Planting inspiration for South African children

By Paul Montgomery | Director of Marketing, PR and Content Management

On the anniversary of what would have been Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday, students of Christel House South Africa along with partners from Dell EMC teamed-up to celebrate the anti-apartheid activist, political leader and President of South Africa. To honor Mandela’s memory, students were encouraged to help clean up their communities by bringing two plastic bottles to school; one to recycle and the other one in which to plant a Spekboom tree to take home. With drought issues in South Africa, the Spekboom is an eco-friendly tree – it requires very little water and is a CO2 guzzler, off-setting harmful carbon emissions. The Mandela event was a true teaching moment. Young students learned about the inspiring leader, remembered as the “Father of the Nation,” and honored his legacy by improving their neighborhoods.
