Doodle Your Future was invited to share good news stories and doodling with 900 learners at the Hawk Academy school in Germiston, Gauteng. The children enjoyed a memorable day while celebrating Nelson Mandela’s 100th anniversary.


Hosted by the Abcon Group Foundation (AGF) who adopted the school in 2013 and run by the Pride Factor life skills academy who invited us to join in and celebrate the special day. The day was jam packed with a wide range of inspirational activities such as song, dance, doodling, Edu theatre, motivational messages and celebrity appearances while the library was painted by volunteers.

Doodle Your Future had the opportunity to share the story of Miss Positive Pants and The School of Positivity with the learners. An educational theatre production that teaches children the values of choosing to find the good in every situation no matter how hard it may be. This vibrant and interactive theatre production was followed by Doodle Your Future spending time with the learners helping them produce their own doodled artwork of the late Nelson Mandela.

Miss Positive Pants was written and was performed by Tammany Barton, the founder of Doodle Your Future and professional actress in Johannesburg, and her awesome assistant, George, performed by Renaldo Abdul, a professional actor and doodle volunteer.
