Four young team members of PROComm hosted a Pre-Mandela Day Lunch for five of the company's scholars from the Grant's Pen Community. The event was held at the What's On Café on Barbican Road, and was also attended by Omar Frith, General Manager of the Stella Maris Foundation which administers the PROComm Scholarship Fund.
PROComm's Anita Chin, Noel Chin, Tashna-Toya Edwards and Vanassa Metzger distributed information on Nelson Mandela to the children, and discussed such topics as forgiveness and cooperation, watchwords of the great man. This is the third year that the PROComm Team has celebrated Mandela Day by treating and mentoring our scholars.
The PROComm Scholarship Fund was launched in 1999 on the 21st Anniversary of the company and has supported its first scholar through to the completion of tertiary education. There are seven scholars who benefit from the programme.
