ANNUAL REPORT 2019
Dear Friends and partners of Keep The Dream196
What an AMAZING year we have had. What an incredible 10years we have had serving the children, families and communities of Limpopo and Acornhoek. What an extraordinary journey it has been from such humble beginnings, please allow me to reminisce during this report so that you can agree with me, it certainly has been an amazing journey.
It has been a journey of self discovery, as well as for the organization and the children and staff. What I mean is, when I came to this nation I had no clue that I would start a Non Governmental Organization which would grow and impact over 12,000 orphaned and vulnerable children over a space of informally 15years and formally for 10yrs.
Elizabeth Mabuza and I started the bones of the project in 2003. Since then we have grown dynamically because of the passion of the volunteers, staff and children we have supported. Along the way we have had many challenges and opportunities to grow and impact the children we serve and I am amazed at the children’s dedication and commitment to the process. In such a short period of time we have produced doctors, nurses, social workers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, electrical, chemical and mechanical engineers, pharmacists, teachers, accountants and a variety of other professional young people dedicated to giving back and empowering their communities.
On the 30th of September 2017 we celebrated our 10yr Anniversary. A wonderful day of celebrations and fun for the children and adults who attended. To also mark the anniversary we have a new website and new logo’s.
