International day of education

International day of education

As we celebrate and recognise the 24th January, International Education Day.

We recognise United Way South Africa learners and teachers as they performed exceptionally well.

UNESCO is encouraging the education system to advocate for peace and love with the emphasis on human rights. “Because if hatred starts with words, peace starts with education. What we learn changes how we view the world and influences how we treat others. Education must therefore be at the heart of our efforts to achieve and maintain world peace."

As also mentioned by Nelson Mandela “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” “Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do.”

We will not achieve much without you. Together we are stronger!
