Media Item Details

 
The educationalist, Patrick van Rensburg, was a leading proponent of education with production. He envisaged a system of 'brigades' at SOMAFCO; these units would work towards economic self-sufficiency in rural areas by working with and developing the skills of the local communities. One such unit was the 'Mandela Brigade', named after Nelson Mandela, the first president of a democratic South Africa, a former political prisoner and anti-apartheid activist. The ANC encouraged comrades to participate in activities that required physical work. © Processed prints
