Archbishop Tutu visit to Wales promoted by Positif
Positif sponsored the recent visit of Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu and his daughter, The Reverend Mpho A. Tutu, to Cardiff in aid of Undeb Africa. Positif were asked to support the dinner and the address of the Archbishop which took place in City Hall on 24 October 2012 by the three charities which form Undeb Africa.
In thanking Positif, Undeb Africa’s Sarah Llewellyn said “We would never have been able to organise an event of this magnitude without the Positif Team’s help, support and generosity. We are grateful that they not only made sure that the evening went amazingly but also made sure that we were able to keep the work of the charities as the focus of the event and ensured that we had the opportunity to share the messages about our work in Africa.”
Beke Nsingo from African Mothers Foundation International said “On behalf of millions of girls in Africa l just want to thank Positif and my Undeb partners for working on such an outstanding event. “
Claude Kipeleka from New Direction for Congo said “Thank you very much for all you did for us to make our event successful. As you know Undeb Africa wants to raise awareness about the women and girls in Africa, therefore we believe that you are great ambassadors for our activities.”
Daran Hill, CEO of Positif said “It was a great pleasure to work with such committed people and it was an opportunity for us to demonstrate what we can do on an international stage. The Positif Team decided to make this our pivotal pro bono event in 2012 as the charities concerned are so deserving. It was vital for us to ensure that key messages were prominent on the night and in the media afterwards.”
The event was attended by many distinguished guests including the Archbishop of Wales, Assembly Members, Ministers in UK Government and Welsh Government, Presiding Officer Rosemary Butler AM, former First Minister Rhodri Morgan and large corporate organisations such as Admiral Insurance, Legal & General and the Principality Building Society.
