EVENT: Saray Khumalo Everest 2019
16 February 2015 - 31 January 2020

90% of South African schools do not have libraries! With the help of my MMI colleagues and friends, I have decided to make a small difference and get involved in the education of ordinary South African Children.

Climbing Everest has been for extraordinary people, Saray Khumalo, a Multiply executive, a mother and an ordinary African girl initiated this campaign and taken on the challenge. She holds the title of the highest altitude climb for a black African female 2017-2018 and was awarded with with the Ministirial Excellence award in 2018 amogn other accolades.

‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’ by Nelson Mandela. Lets therefore put our hands together and make a small difference by taking libraries to less privileged schools because the power is in our hands!

Follow me on Ubuntu Everest facebook page, @ubuntueverest and the Mandela Bangle Facebook page to see daily updates as we head from Momentum Multiply to the top of the world.
