African drumming. Open Bar. South African wines. Delicious and healthy hors d'oeuvres. DJ & Dancing. Compassionate supporters who understand the value of education for children everywhere. All of that will take place at our annual Universal Promise fundraiser at the Rotunda in Newport. The goals of this year's event are to raise sufficient funds to purchase new desks and chairs for all 850 students at Vusumzi Primary School in South Africa and to have fun doing so!
An exciting addition this year will be the presence of South African resident Charlie Josephs, a descendent of the Khoisan, the original inhabitants of the southern part of the continent. Charlie will share his firsthand knowledge of how Universal Promise and our supporters have affected the trajectory of opportunity and hope for thousands in Nomathamsanqa.
