EQ

This morning in Diepkloof Soweto, we had fun: playing football and chatting. The local guys were there as well as some visitors from the UK (Andy and his boys). Firstly, the British boys were not bad at football and I think they were nice. We quickly gave them nick names: Walcott, Eboue, Malankane/Yaya, Crouch, etc. They were cool. Not the rioting type, it seems :-) The experience overall was good.

Yet there were a few reality checks, that convinced me again poverty is not about money…

Youthzones and ABI

I'm sure you've all seen the exciting news that took place yesterday in Johannesburg. ABI has generously given Youthzones more moola to continue to reach out to everyone within the Youthzones and to start 4 new sites. This means more friendships, more networking, more tournaments and more FUN! Thank you to everyone who came to support. It was good to rub shoulders with CEO's and just to see that anything is possible. Three Cheers to the Youthzones. You can catch the event on DSTV 200 or… Continue

Womensday in Soweto

 

I was privileged to spend Women’s Day in Soweto.

Equal Opportunities?

Everybody do their few minutes on Mandela Day which like lead SA might be cute, or is it just a way for things to stay as they are with some legitimation added to the story? The Madiba everyone celebrates asked for an ideal where "all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities". We like the idea of harmony and no crime, but what are we doing about 'equal opportunities'? I watched Carte Blanche about poor black youths attacking whites who do mountain biking. Now, I NEVER… Continue

Thin line between Good and Evil
