Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world
- Nelson Mandela
Anne Hepfer proudly supports Education without Borders in their passionate work to provide educational opportunities and facilities in disadvantaged regions of the world; through EwB’s efforts, these communities develop knowledge and skills that create possibilities for a better future. Gugulethu, a township of 500,000 people outside Cape Town, South Africa is one such community benefitting from these efforts; EwB is currently focused on a Senior Secondary School and an Adult Education Centre. Anne believes in EwB and fully supports their efforts through a donation of a percentage of sales of the ah ha! collection.
Anne and her team have sponsored the Toronto South African Film Festival (TSAFF) in 2015, 2016, and 2017. This wonderful event features films that explore the culture, history and politics in South Africa.
