Extra special Mandela Day Commemoration

Extra special Mandela Day Commemoration

This year’s Mandela Day was celebrated in an extra special way when Casidra’s Public Relations Team handed over donations of 180 packs of school stationery to the value R40 000 to the  Pebbles Project for their Grade R learners on Monday, 18 July 2022 at the Pebbles Project in Kraaifontein.

Rachel Ward da Costa, Fundraiser for the Pebbles Project, was overjoyed and expressed her appreciation for the care, love and support received from Casidra and its sponsors.

Our CEO, Keith du Plessis, thanked and acknowledged all Casidra Staff and donors/sponsors for their contributions during his address at Casidra.  He said, “Our 67 minutes for Mandela Day celebrations started on 13 July 2022 when we delivered garden compost and tools as well as prepared vegetable gardens at the Raithby Methodist Church in Raithby and the Noorder-Paarl High School in Paarl”.

The CEO quoted one of his favourite quotes of the legend himself, Nelson Mandela, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. 

“We stood together and gave our support to those in need. Let’s continue to do our bit by changing the lives of others. We must make every day a Mandela Day”, says du Plessis.

Casidra SOC Ltd is a rural development company based in Paarl that works mainly in the rural communities within the Western Cape Province where poverty is rife. 

The Company seeks to build partnerships that facilitate local resource mobilisation and action, that encourage local participation and advocacy for development efforts, and that foster co-operation among local role-players.  Due to a lack of resources experienced by many communities, we always look for various donations and sponsorships in order to assist wherever possible. 

A special thank you to the following donors/sponsors for making this year’s Mandela Day commemoration extra special for the Pebbles Project: Kaap Agri, WP Chipper Hire & Sales, Nel Tanks, Kings Catering, Janela-Tek, Mariano Agri Maintenance Services, Verliam Training Projects, Koup Produsente, Fraserburg Lanbou Kooperasie, Ribbens Office National, Garden and Organics, Dynotech and Projects.
