Trading Live - a BIG thank you.

Date Released: Mon, 31 July 2017 09:40 +0200

I wish to commend the Director and staff of our Community Engagement Office for organising yet  another successful Trading Live Week to honour the founding father of our nation, uTata Nelson Mandela. I am so deeply grateful to all students and staff of this great university who set aside time to reach out to our local community to make a tangible difference in the lives of those with whom we share this time. I know that the contribution made by our students and staff has not been an act of charity but a recognition and an affirmation of our common humanity and shared destiny.

I wish to thank our local partners who welcomed us in their homes and facilities and opened our eyes to a part of the living spaces and circumstances of which some of us are oblivious. Let us make each day a Mandela day - treating each other with respect and dignity and working together for the greater common good; committed to building a better society and a better world.
