“Please know just how much we greatly appreciate your and your staff’s great professional and caring work on our behalf.”
“The professional meetings were all excellent choices and focused on areas we wanted to cover. We have much to learn from each other about democracy, peacemaking, healing and reconciliation.”
“The team of people that had been assembled by Spirit of Africa to lead tours is simply outstanding. The delegates and I (as the leader) greatly appreciate their professionalism and competence.”

“On behalf of the LiSLIG (Liasa Special Libraries Interest Group) community here in Cape Town, I would like to thank you very much for adding our program at the last minute in the schedule for the People to People delegation of Special Library Professionals. It was a rare opportunity for librarians here, and we had a thoroughly excellent exchange, and were inspired and impressed. I also think that they were able to learn something about the trends and challenges we face in the special libraries field here. Thank you very much for your willingness to help.”

“Without the Spirit of Africa’s cooperation and assistance this mission would not have been so successful. We thank you for your support of this important international initiative. This mission enabled us to promote international education and establish mutually beneficial opportunities.
Thanks gain for a perfectly executed program!
The presidents and chancellors expect the friendships and institutional partnerships that they made with their colleagues to endure long past our visit and I am certain they will be calling on SOA for any future travel to South Africa.”
