White Pearl Resorts Raises Funds To Purchase School Desks For Students at Escola Primaria Da Ponta Mamoli in Ponta Mamoli

In honor of Nelson Mandela International Day July 18th, White Pearl Resorts, a luxury five-star resort set in the dunes of the untouched shores of southern Mozambique, is leading an initiative to help local students pave their way to a better education and brighter future.

For 67 years, Mandela was passionate about making the world a better place, one small step at a time. Mandela Day is a global call to action that celebrates the idea that each individual has the power to transform the world; each person has the ability to make an impact.

“Service is at the heart of our organization, and every day our Team Members devote countless resources to strengthen our community,” said Cordelia Masher, Managing Director of White Pearl Resorts. “Whether it’s teaching young people about careers in hospitality, organizations or preserving the natural habitats surrounding our resort, volunteerism gives us the opportunity to enrich the lives of others while also developing our team and creating a vibrant culture.”

Every day, over 95 million students struggle to learn across sub-Saharan Africa because they have no access to a classroom desk. Mozambique is one of these countries. White Pearl Resorts is launching a 67 day campaign to raise R40,000 (approximately $2,777 USD) to give the approximately 110 local students at Escola Primaria Da Ponta Mamoli in Ponta Mamoli each a desk, where they can write and concentrate. “By providing the foundation for these young minds and the necessary tools to learn we’re ultimately creating an educational system that attracts, and keeps, eager young students,” explained Masher.

In honor of Mandela Day, White Pearl Resorts is donating $1 USD per booked hotel night to the project from July 18 – September 22, 2016. Rates start at $570 per person, per night, all-inclusive, excluding transfers.

Growing Pearls, White Pearl Resorts private foundation is focused on giving back to the community and environment, thereby enhancing the social and environmental surroundings of the resort. During the 67 day campaign, simultaneously guests will receive complimentary handmade Mandela chocolate and encouraged to donate via Growing Pearls. By choosing to donate, White Pearl Resorts guests not only enjoy a luxurious stay that is rich in discovery, but leave with wonderful memories of their experiences, knowing that they have made a positive difference to the local environment and community.

In addition, White Pearl Resorts will put a team of staff together over the next 67 days to give more than 67 minutes of their time to assemble the desks for the Escola Primaria Da Ponta Mamoli in Ponta Mamoli.
“We sincerely hope that our efforts not only help in providing the basics but also support in bringing people together. Through Growing Pearls we arrange various community initiatives throughout the year but Mandela Day is a good reminder that we are here to support each other every day,” concluded Masher.
