Building the Pool of Graduates by Accessing the Potential of Rural Communities

On 18 July, Nelson Mandela International Day, “IT’S AFRICA’S TIME” visited Mvezo, Mandela’s birthplace in South Africa’s Eastern Cape Province, where Siemens is investing in education and the construction of the Mandela School of Science and Technology. Activities included a tour of the completed facilities, the donation of the Sports Pavilion to the community represented by Chief Mandela, and tree planting by VIPs and community members. The children of Mvezo also had the opportunity to engage in science experiments and computer lessons and to talk about their educational aspirations that will be made possible by the school.
