Providing hope through education. Charity power with comb and scissors. For young people from the townships of Cape Town, the Education for Life school at "Christel House South Africa" is a place to start a better life. Jens Dagné, President of Education for Life: "In Cape Town, the world of the rich is often just a stone's throw away from the tin shacks of the desperately poor majority. Education is the gateway out of adversity." Intercoiffure President Peter F. Pfister visited the young hairdressers with a delegation. Inge Handing and Heidi Wetzel from the USA were involved as international trainers, as well as Andreas Innfeld from Austria who also made the getHair program he developed available to the students free of charge! Pfister: "I would like to thank everyone involved and especially Ezra, who is taking care of the entire project in South Africa."
