As part of our graduation ceremony for our batch of new recruits, we are taking them on a surprise trip to Robben Island on Saturday 26th July 2014. 

R250 will pay for a return ticket for one tradesman. Pay for one return fare, or R500 to pay for two guys to get there and back - or for as many as you would like! 

There are 16 remarkable township tradesmen who have been through our stringent selection process as well as our 4 existing artisans, and out of the hundreds of hopefuls that we have interviewed, met and assessed so far, these are the cream of the crop and we want to give them a really special experience to reward them for having got this far and also as a token of our recognition of how many obstacles they have already overcome in their lives. 

We had hoped to get a reduced rate from Robben Island Museum however they inform us that they have exceeded their concessions for the year. We are determined to get our guys to the Island, especially during the month of Madiba's birthday, as we cannot think of a more fitting celebration of all that they have already achieved and all that their future with TRADE-MARK can hold. We are calling on you, our loyal supporters, to help by sponsoring to get a tradesman to the Island.

R250 will pay for a return ticket, and an experience of a lifetime for a remarkable township tradesman. This is a luxury that a lot of us take for granted, but for most South Africans there are always going to be much more pressing needs. We know how special this experience is going to be for our tradesmen and what it will mean to them. We don't want them to miss out. 

Thank you for your support!
