​The Story of a School - Mayflower

​The year was 1956. In the heart of Africa was a school founded out of frustration and struggle. The unique school was named Mayflower School - An institution for mental freedom. Created for the sole purpose to recondition the students' mindset to free itself from self imposed limitations of religion, superstitions and discrimination.
