After attending Global Citizens Movement conferences in Johannesburg, Javier Collado traveled to Cape Town, where he met the ex-President of South Africa, Mr. Frederik Willem de Klerk. In the official act, Mr. de Klerk became Honorary Member at Education for Life NGO.
Mr. de Klerk was Félix Houphouët-Boigny Peace Prize in 1991, Prince of Asturias Award in 1992, and also Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 along Nelson Mandela for their role in the ending of apartheid.
Ex-President de Klerk joined Global Education Magazine at its first edition in International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (October 17th, 2012), where he published “South Africa is one of the most unequal societies in the world“.
After 20 years of his nobel nomination, in November 2013, Education for Life NGO recognized his distinctive contributions in peacebuilding process during long years of his life. Mr. de Klerk represent a big example of values shared by team members of Education for Life NGO and, for that reason, he is welcome to become the highest grade of membership in our Non-profit institution.
