The smiles in this video say it all

School is tough enough without missing the basics. Like shoes. But this joint project from the National Education Collaboration Trust and Woolworths shows how the little things can make a big difference.


“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Nelson Mandela’s statement has never been more true, but it’s hard to learn when you’ve walked kilometres barefoot just to get there. This Mandela Day, staff at Woolworths donated R67 or more towards a pair of new school shoes and socks as part of a project run by the Woolworths Trust for under-resourced schools in the rural Eastern Cape.

Take a look at what happened next. The smiles say it all.
