When Michelle Obama made plans to visit Cape Town in June 2011, the American Embassy put together a VIP vendor event in her honour.

The event aimed to showcase the best of South African art and craft whilst specifically looking at projects with a philanthropic objective. The Light From Africa Foundation was delighted to be selected as one of just 8 projects highlighted at this event where our team put on a fantastic display for delegates and VIP guests alike.With an opportunity to show our Bright Ideas to the American market, it was heartwarming to receive huge interest in our vision and creativity! A BIG thank you to the Consul General Alberta Mayberry as well as event co-ordinator Kristin Burkhalter for choosing us to represent our country at such an important event.
