Roots of Africa

Important to is the symbol of the Baobab Tree, especially its longevity and its ability to sustain life within its substantial trunk. Each Baobab provides both sustenance and shelter for a diversity of creatures which is a testament to its similarity to the women of South Africa. This very idea fits with Sevafrica’s slogan of “Our strength is in our togetherness”.

Each week, will feature our very own ‘Root of Africa’, which is an person we believe, is a strength and mainstay of our society. Our ‘Root of Africa’ represents the strength and courage of influential individual as well as the reasoning behind us honouring them; furthermore it is because we see their longevity in their chosen roles and professions.

The tree is characterized by its ‘upside down’ appearance and it is this idea of exposed and vertically reaching roots is where we derive the analogy for the ‘Roots of Africa’.
