Stellar Travel Sponsors Local South African Potjie Competition

Saturday 16 May 2015

Ghana - Stellar Travel was honored to be a main sponsor for the Annual South African Potjie Competition. Cooking up a "Potjie" (stew) has evolved into a unique, South African, social gathering, a tradition almost as popular as the legendary "Braai". Family and friends settle around the softly bubbling "Potjie", either on a fire or a gas stove (for the modern chef) chatting, enjoying a drink and having a great old time, until the potjie is ready to eat. 

The event was well attended and included, in addition to the competition, live music, dancer performances, raffle prizes and face painting for children.

The goal of the event was to raise money for girls education. The proceeds from the event will sponsor as many girls as possible to be able to attend Senior High School in Tamale, Ghana along with covering the cost of their uniform, supplies and exam fees. A certain portion of the proceed will also go directly to the chosen schools to assist with the purchasing of tables, chairs, lockers, white boards and minor structural improvements.

Stellar Travel was delighted to have had the opportunity to participate in such a wonderful event.
