Unilever brings sparkle to Barracuda Primary School

Unilever South Africa teamed up with the Newlands East community members including parents and teachers in commemoration of International Nelson Mandela Day, to clean and brighten up Barracuda Primary School in KZN on 17 July 2015.

“The Domestos team, with the help of family members and the Newlands East Community, is proud to honour the legacy of Tata Nelson Mandela by taking a moment from our daily activities to brighten up Barracuda Primary School so that it can a place that inspires learners and makes them proud,” said Cynthia Luthuli, Domestos Brand Manager.

Domestos has a long-standing relationship with Barracuda Primary School, where its toilet facilities were renovated earlier this year, in an effort to restore human dignity and improve access to proper sanitation. Prior to Unilever SA coming to Barracuda Primary School’s aid, the state and condition of the toilet facilities was adequate for the learners. The level of absenteeism was high due to disease and infections related to poor sanitation.

“Creating a brighter future through Unilever’s brands with a purpose with the aim of making sustainable living a commonplace, forms part of our DNA and this commitment goes beyond International Day for Nelson Mandela”, said Cynthia Luthuli, Domestos Brand Manager.

Participants of the school clean up were in action with mops, brooms and brushes as well as Domestos products to spruce up the school.

“We are overwhelmed by the graceful attendance of the community members, it is evident that the global icon’s legacy lives on and is instilled within each and every one of us that did their bit for Mandela Day,” concluded Luthuli.
