The upper right corner of the plaque features the flag of South Africa – adopted as part of the April 1994 General Election, marking the end of Apartheid.  Below the flag is the right side of Kehaya House.

The bottom left and right sections contain a banner with the words “Education is the most powerful weapon” excerpted from the full quote by Nelson Mandela: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Behind the banner below is the left hand side of Kehaya House.
