To most people (especially black people in urban areas) growing up in a rural area seems like a boring experience, with dull memories and thought to be a huge set back. To some extend i would agree…Continue

Covid_19 Mask

It all started with what we call waste but they then saw an opportunity to make something beautiful out of it .from the community of Kanana in Hammeskraal they have secured a deal to supply mask to Bidvest Protea Coin and Audi Sandton.

Reach for the stars beyond the bars

Dissatisfaction and discouragement are not courses by the absence of things but by the absence of vision. Our vision is the promise of what we shall one day be. We have within us the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars and to change the world. Never stop defining our vision of what life could be. Let's create pictures of every aspects of our dreams life-visualise it, feel it and dream it. The future belongs to those who see possibilities before they exist.

I could not stop thinking about one of the most remarkable encounter in my life where the guys and girls from Sandton and successful (working for Convergence Partners) were mingling and having good times with the champs from Siyabuswa and Libangeni. They all played football in a bushy and thorny field, falling everywhere tackling each other, making jokes and the girls hanging out with the other girls and using open roof toilets and teaching each other computers. They shared KFC together. Everything was great and what was very interesting is the moment they started asking each about their respective lifestyles, only to found out they like the same thigs when they chill or do things. Like Silas from Libangeni  who  is a high school dropout said he likes to play poker or card "casino" with friends when he relaxes and also the CIO of the company our good friend Idan Segal said that is what he likes most also when he is relaxes. Is so amazing that the moment we cross our little shells or boundaries or comfort zones (we join the youthzones, lol) only to be shocked when we find out that we are the same or connected  as our friend next door who we are scared of and we feel insecure around his/her presence. It was very interesting to see our friends after I showed them the gym made of cement weights, only Idan and I had a work out and the rest watching and straight we finished they rushed to a bottle store near to buy booze nearby. What is interesting is that normally rich people in the suburbs in the development world or 'religious' families feel is right for them to drink and have fun and be free with no any guilt and we write a lot of manuals and books and talk alot about the poor should not have fun and have a drink or two like them because ... so many reasons to mention. I have seen so many rich individuals drining doing worse things and some going to prisons. The bottom line is poor or rich, black or white, everyone should have equal opportunities and live freely. What I like is that these lads from Convergence Partners shared with the locals at the bottle and talked to each other about the influence of over drinking in one 's life and they had fun and not being judgemental and they showed the locals that they also drink and pretending. The reality is it all goes to morality, life skills, responsiblity, etc irrespective of your race, status, titles, background...

4 days to for the competition

Essay contest: is playing soccer a child right?

The 10th of December is International Human Rights Day. A day to celebrate the importance of human rights for freedom and peace around the world. On this day we also celebrate the Rights of the Child. The United Nations agreed that all the children in the world have the same rights. Children have the right to a safe home, to go to school, and to play. A very popular play in South Africa is soccer. It teaches you to cooperate with a
team, how to handle losing a game, and much more. During the World Cup this year, the whole world could see how important soccer is in South Africa.
Soccer is a way for young South Africans to develop, learn to express yourselves and prepare yourself for life. We believe in the power of soccer: yes""> young South Africans can exercise their right to play and develop their future. But what do we really know?? The Netherlands Embassy would like to hear your stories and challenges you to write about what playing soccer means to you. Did it give you opportunities that you otherwise would not have had? Do you think playing soccer is important to you and your development?
You can send your story of ½ to 1 page before 1 January 2010 yes"" to Please, mention your name and age. The best 5 essays will win an official Netherlands team jersey with your name on it
! So don’t hesitate and start writing!

We had a 2 hour workshop about Project Plan writing, using that to explain objectives, time-lines, budget, etc... a lot to take in, but the idea of turning a bunch o guys into a development movement really excited them. With these iphoto effects we all become shades of brown!
