The children are our future.

And there is one Soweto-based Day Care Director who is making sure the seed of aviation is planted in the minds for a group of young kids based in Dobsonville.

Every year, Xolani, the caretaker who runs Kiddies’ Hope Early Nursery School takes the oldest kids from the school (about 12-15 Grade 1 learners) on an educational tour. The goal is to expose the kids to different professions in order to encourage early childhood development, with the belief that the earlier they are exposed to the professional world, the better.

This morning the Minister of Transport, Mr Fikile tweeted the below. Which, honestly, almost made the internet explode. Because, cuteness!

Have. You. Ever.

Mango Airlines partnered with the Day Care's Aviation Education Tour, showing them the inns and outs of the aviation world. This was their second year doing an airport educational tour, and the kids were kitted out in full-on #AirSwag thanks to Mango.

Their poses were on point as can be.

Mango replied to the Minister's tweet saying, "Good day Minister. Today, some of our pilots and crew will be putting on a special show for these future pilots. However, the Kiddies' Centre has shared with us that some of them, aspire to be traffic officers. So, over to you Minister."

Checking-in for their Mango flight, one child in particular drew our attention with his cheekiness, pulling a lekker naughty face...

Mango told Traveller24 that the kids have also been invited to Thailand for a future trip! This week, Mango will be visiting the Day Care along with some crew - bringing the airport to them so to speak! This is where we'll get to meet Xolani, too.
