On 10 April 2013, Sibusiso Vilane, the first African to reach the summit of Everest, and Hlubi Moya of Isidingo kicked off the opening of the 25th Mandela Day container library at Opperman’s Kraal Primary School in Bergville, KwaZulu-Natal.
The container library – the first of several to be funded by Participate for Good – was well received by the young learners, despite the cold and wet weather.
Participate for Good is a sports programme run by Robert Coutts that focuses on getting people involved in various activities, which in turn raise funds for the 46664 Bangle Mandela Day library project.
In this case it was the Old Mutual joBerg2c race – a nine-day 900km cycle from Johannesburg to Durban – that sponsored the contents of the Opperman’s Kraal Primary School container library.
