#etvSunrise: Mandela Day & Read to Lead

18 July 2017

We get to see what the Sunrise team got up to in honour of Mandela Day and we find out more about the Read to Lead campaign. Sunrise, weekdays at 5:30AM.

The Sunrise team partnered with the Gail Britoe Foundation and spent a day out in Eldorado Park Ext 3 getting involved in charitable activities, and giving back to the community in honour of Mandela Day.

They started the day off by serving breakfast to children, then headed off to the Andries Meyer Old Age Home to serve the grannies and grandpa’s some sweet treats for tea time. They finished the day off at The Retirement Village and donated bags of oranges to the elders in the community. 

Read to Lead

Read to Lead in partnership with the Nelson Mandela Foundation and the Department of Basic Education has launched a campaign in 2015. The aim is to increase the average learner performance in literacy by developing a culture of reading amongst all South African children and to improve their reading abilities.
