Supports Mandela Day UKZN Bursaries for Change
In keeping with the late Nelson Mandela’s legacy and in the true spirit of ubuntu, the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry has partnered with the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) Foundation and the Nelson Mandela Foundation to make a difference by raising bursary funds for students in need.
To quote the late Nelson Mandela, “It is not beyond our power to create a world in which all children have access to a good education. Those who do not believe this have small imaginations.”
I call on my fellow business leaders in eThekwini and beyond as well as my colleagues and friends to pledge a minimum of R67 or multiples thereof to the UKZN Foundation’s ‘Bursaries for Change’ campaign.
This campaign epitomises our continued commitment to the ideals and values that Nelson Mandela lived by and I hope that you join me in contributing to this worthy cause as this will not only honour his memory but raise money for one of the causes close to his heart. Together we can empower and embolden the next generation to become icons like Mandela, who can affect positive social and economic change in our society.
