At the end of September, the GWF and Londolozi were part of a wonderful day of celebration in the Justicia community – the handing over of a healthy, flowing borehole at Madlala High School and Learning Centre.

This borehole will transform the lives of the Madlala learning community as there are currently very few people who have access to running water in the communities surrounding Madlala.

During the opening celebrations, a poem recited by one of the learners summed it up entirely:

Water is Life

Water is noble
Water is a source of life
Water is minister without portfolio
Water is oil, glue, blood, air and everything

Without water, life is like a dead planet
Without water life is a hell
The parable of the rich and poor, Lazarus in the bible explains it better
Without water life is lifeless..

After the ceremony, dignitaries took a look inside the new digital learning centre at Madlala - Witness Mnisi
