Together we spread the message of Love in S.A
CEO AND FOUNDER OF GOOD WORK FOUNDATION
I am an educator. It is not what I do it is who I am when I wake up in the morning. The Difference makers S.A. Mission and the #BlueRibbon ceremony is a wonderful way to highlight amazing work being done by amazing people all over the world. Often work that goes unnoticed but work that positively changes the world. A big thank you to #Julie Steynberg for her passion in driving this mission; also acknowledging the courage it took to start a Global Movement here in S.A. woman alone; now making more #ChangeMakersSA part of the #BigDream.
I am extremely grateful to have been appreciated and the acknowledgement that was done at an event whereat I was announced as a Difference Maker by Cresseldah Ndlovu, who also is a Top100 SA Difference Maker; and this is what it is, to pay the love forward, from one person to another. Receiving a #BlueRibbon from her is an honour; also was it inspiring to meet Julie, the Country Ambassador of this initiative at the very same event.
It is an amazing honour to have been nominated as a Top 100 SA Change Maker and to become part of the Global dream to let 1 out of 7 people on planet earth receive a Blue Ribbon that says: Who I am makes a difference; we are touched and would definitely want to pay the love forward and honour someone too, someone who touched my life too, especially with what we do at the Good Work Foundation. I love this organization DMI-SA, it is all about ‘Love for all, with no one left out’ as the Founder in S.A. Julie Steynberg teaches all. The work being done by all on this list is really inspiring and it is wonderful to see all the good work being done by South Africans and it is amazing to be a part of a group of people who work tirelessly to make our country and the world a better place; and now to make our projects part of a Global Movement is exciting. The Good Work Foundation: has Digital Campuses in two Provinces (Mpumalanga and Free State).
I am often lucky enough to be at rural preschool graduations. All those shiny faces full of potential. I often wonder who is in that classroom; great leaders, caring fathers, mothers, innovative farmers, doctors and engineers; even authors and painters. I also know that if we do not do something to change how these children will be able to engage with education and the school system – we will never know who is in that classroom.
There are challenges in South Africa, challenges that require us to tap into the potential of all young South Africans, not only those who have access to good schooling. Good Work Foundation was created to do just that. To make sure it does not matter where you are born. You must have access to education in order to reach your full potential.
The Good Work Foundation has so much to offer, go-see more on the website and the social media URL available here.
