JOHANNESBURG - US singer Pharrell Williams visited Emisebeni Primary School in Soweto to see the positive impact his collaboration with Woolworths is having on schools and communities in South Africa.
The retailer aims to raise R100 million for education and to drive awareness of environmental sustainability.
Woolworths Group CEO, Ian Moir, said, "The Woolworths Good Business Journey is the driving force behind our partnership with Pharrell as we aim to raise R100 millions for schools in need across the country and to make sustainability cool for the next generation of South Africans."
Emisebeni is a beneficiary of Woolworths' MySchool programme, which raises much-needed funds for education.
Williams wasted no time in rolling up his sleeves and helping learners to plant trees in the school's Eduplant vegetable garden.
The Soweto Gospel Choir welcomed the muscian in song as he arrived at the school.
