Nolands’ & symbol – and the meaning it represents

“The Power of And” is the inspiration for our partnership with Amandla Obunye.

In “the power of togetherness/ working together” the meaning of the Amandla Obunye name helps explain our intention.

It promises a successful outcome based on teamwork, shared vision and hard work.

It is about the amazing things that happen when we work together, towards something meaningful. When we do this, we not only change lives, we can also help shape the future.

We are well aware that Amandla Obunye is immersed in our country’s most pressing need: the education of our young people.

What makes them truly special is them taking on the really difficult projects, in many cases offering hope of a bright future when there was none before.
