Happy Science, a Tokyo-based international religious organisation, recently handed over a Mandela Day Container Library to Tshifudi Primary School in Tshifudi Village, Vhembe Municipality, Limpopo, in partnership with the Nelson Mandela Foundation (NMF).
The ceremony was full of joy with participants from all over the village since it was the very first library in the village.
After the passing of Mr. Nelson Mandela, Happy Science established HS Nelson Mandela Fund as its internal fund in order to advance in the will of Mr. Mandela; aiming to nurture future leaders of the world and support people who cannot receive education due to poverty, or racial, gender and caste discrimination, people who are opposed by their government and people who cannot receive medical treatment.
The funds for the container library was donated through this Fund.
Based on the philosophy of “Cast aside all hatred and embrace love”, Happy Science wishes to continue to support NMF and the people of South Africa, realise Mr Mandela’s ideals, and create the world without any discrimination, conflict and poverty.
