Every 18th of July, South Africa asks its citizens to spend 67 minutes of their day helping others in honour of Madiba’s 67 years of active service to our nation. This year, the GTI is partnering with LEAP Science and Maths Schools, the Hyprop Foundation and Canal Walk Shopping Centre in Cape Town in a service event you won’t want to miss: the construction of the largest food can mosaic ever in South Africa!
The mosaic – in the shape of the Nelson Mandela Day logo (see picture on the left) – will span 8 by 16 metres and use 6700kg of food cans. After the event, LEAP students and staff will distribute cans to social development projects in the communities of LEAP 1 and 2.
Participation is open to members of the public. Stop by and donate a few cans of food to the cause, or take part in a sponsored corporate package. The event will take place from 09h00 to 17h00 at Canal Walk’s Promotions Court.
