Mandela Day Brings More "Change for Children" PDF Print E-mail

Virgin Atlantic Airways and Water For All celebrated Mandela Day, a national day of service in South Africa, by volunteering their staff and crew's time and talents at the Sibikiwe Primary School in Ennerdale, about an hour outside of Johannesburg.

Earlier in the year, Water For All had donated a solar water pump to Sibikiwe with funds raised by Virgin Atlantic’s Change for Children program. Change for Children is the "onboard charity" of Virgin Atlantic, where passengers donate loose change or foreign currency to a designated nonprofit organization working in one of the airline's destinations. The airline chose Water For All to receive 100 percent of the donations collected in August 2009 - £48,419.85 (more than USD79,000).

This year the funds raised will be dedicated to water pumps in Tanzania.

"Having access to clean drinking water at a school is as critical as having pencils, books and committed teachers,” said Gregg Sherkin of Oprah's Angel Network, a grantmaking organization founded and led by Oprah Winfrey. “The solar water purification system Water For All and its partners supplied to the Seven Fountains School is essential not only for the well being of the school but also the community which utilizes the school after hours and on weekends."
