In February 2014 the JustSpirulina team embarked on its first journey outside Israel, intent on passing the Spirulina knowledge to students in the Cape Town area, thus creating another link in our CHAIN OF NUTRITION AND SOLIDARITY.
JustSpirulina partnered with Learning Academy Worldwide and students from the Hertzliya Hebrew Gymnasium in Tel Aviv taught students from 5 schools in the Cape Town area: Cape Academy for Maths, Science and Technology; Grabouw High School; Groenberg Secondary School; De Rust Futura Academy; Heathfield High School.
Extraordinarily, these youngsters were able – just by their enthusiasm and energy – to overcome the skepticism and cynicism that the adults – teachers and principals – were in many instances inhibited by.
Their energies were “contagious”.
The kids were actually the ones to persuade even the most stubborn principals to join the project.
A year later, in March 2015, a group from Cape Academy for Maths, Science and Technology presented the Spirulina project in a national contest for innovation in education and won first prize.
