July 2014
As part of our contribution to the '67 minutes' campaign in honour of our former president Nelson Mandela's birthday, Fasset attended the DHET Nelson Mandela Day Festival that was held in Sebokeng in Gauteng and participated in a hand-over of groceries in support of the feeding scheme at Far North Secondary School. These were worthwhile and fruitful occasions, which we were very honoured to be a part of.



Please don't forget to register your attendance at our annual function which is scheduled to take place in September. We are looking forward to showcasing our activities with you.
