On Wednesday 30th of November, the Grade 5 students at Reddam House school in Constantia will be introduced to SA’s first blind barista, Joseph Matheatau and be given the opportunity to create advertising materials for Kaleidoscope’s Blindiana Barista coffee.

The 11-12 year old students will be creating a print, television and radio advert for the newly launched Blindiana Blend, a Kaleidoscope (former Institute for the Blind) & Beans for Africa initiative, which is blended, tasted, packed and distributed by the blind in Worcester.
Over the past 5-years Reddam House in partnership with Red & Yellow School’s, Sharon Worrall, have been instroducing their grade 5 students to positive cause related initiatives and this year they get the opportunity to get involved in letting the blind lead.

She explains: “Overall we aim to introduce communication tools as solution based thinking while developing learners that are able to think creatively.”
The children have three hours to produce advertising materials ready for presentation, following this parents of the class will enjoy a coffee made by SA’s first blind barista, Joseph Matheatau served from the mobile unit at the school.
