Ripening young minds

[ April 10, 2013   //   ]

Shipping line Safmarine and fruit exporter Capespan recently handed over two classrrooms – converted from old shipping containers – to the Agter-Witzenberg farm community in the Western Cape. They will give parents working on fruit farms in the area the peace of mind that their young pre-school children are getting educational support and care. Safmarine donated the two 40-foot reefer containers which were converted into classrooms with the help of Cool Maintenance and award-winning industrial designer and architect, Y Tsai of Tsai Design Studio.

At a handover ceremony, Safmarine Southern Africa Cluster Manager, Dirk Hoffmann said it was “an honour and our privilege” to help nurture young minds
