The life of Nelson Mandela is one of the most inspirational stories of recent times. His example offers
valuable lessons on the importance of personal resistance to evil, and the redemptive power of forgiveness.
In 2004 Nelson Mandela took the time to visit a Sun Oven project. He came to participate in the
dedication of the first solar powered bakery in Eastern Cape, South Africa. The project established a
model solar powered Sun-Bakery in the rural community of Willowvale, to bake bread and generate
income for HIV positive women. He expressed a personal interest in the project and heartfelt concern for
the community. His warmth and gentleness won the hearts of everyone he came in contact with. He has
been loved by many.
