Nelson Mandela once said, “It is in your hands, to make a better world for all who live in it”.

The Val de Vie Foundation is committed to making the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley a better place for all.

To celebrate Mandela Day, we called on our residents to spend their 67 minutes sorting and gathering books to assist Salt and Light Kids, one of the non-profit organisations supported by the Val de Vie Foundation through our partnership with Valcare, with their efforts to fill the library of LK Zeeman School in Paarl East.

Over 600 children’s books were handed over to Salt and Light Kids this morning and will find their way into the hands, minds and hearts of the learners of LK Zeeman.

Thank you to every Val de Vie Estate resident who contributed to the book drive.
