IIE MSA on Mandela Month at Far North Secondary School

As Mandela Month ends, four students from IIE MSA did a book drive to collect books and add to the library collection at Far North Secondary School in Cosmo City. The collection will go a long way to reinforcing the culture of reading at the school.

A part of their internship programme and community upliftment initiative, the four students were helping Nyakaza Media Solutions with the formulation of a Marketing Strategy to improve and grow the organisation.

“We truly appreciate the book donation from IIE MSA, we truly appreciate,” said Far North Principal Sello Maropeng.
