M-Net and Decorex SA join forces to support the needs of South African children's charities

Nurturing and educating South Africa's youth is once more the focus of a partnership between Decorex SA and television network M-Net.
Decorex SA announces that M-Net has renewed its media sponsorship of Africa's largest décor, design and lifestyle exhibition. Both parties value this partnership as an effective means of creating awareness and offering support to children's charities, with the primary focus being on education.

The theme of M-Net's presence at Decorex SA exhibitions in 2013 will be "Room to Grow". This M-Net Cares space will showcase children's rooms and stimulate ideas for spaces dedicated to children for visitors to Decorex Durban, Cape Town and Joburg.

Decorex SA kicks off the Decorex Durban 2013 exhibition at the Durban Exhibition Centre, 21-24 March.

The M-Net Cares "Room to Grow" initiative will focus on children's furniture and décor that encourage a happy, nurturing and educational lifestyle. Look out for child-friendly interiors and room settings that cater to the different stages of childhood development. Expect to see an inspiring space ranging from a baby's nursery, a toddler's play area, a tween's learning space and a teen's escape.

"We are extremely proud to have M-Net on board as media partner for another year," says general manager of Decorex SA, Sian Steyn. "The work we have accomplished together so far has benefited many young people and we will continue to do so in 2013."

Koo Govender, M-Net Director: Corporate Marketing and Communications, says the M-Net Cares collaboration with Decorex SA is a prime example of M-Net's commitment to education. "It's important to create an environment that suits the needs of our children - from toddlers to teens. 'Room to Grow' will showcase the necessary tools required in achieving effective childhood development and in the end the exhibition will make a difference where it's needed most."

The furniture featured in the M-Net "Room to Grow" space will be donated to underprivileged children, supporting their growth needs and embracing the principals of 'do-good-design'.

Decorex SA proudly supports M-Net Cares and its initiatives.
