We officially kicked off our celebrations on the 11th of October, where we had our first event at Saxonwold Primary with special partners/donors, friends and trustees who came to celebrate with our primary school leaners. Our foundation (Grades R-3) and intermediate phase learners (Gr 4 – 7) engaged in arts and crafts. It was a fun day that ended with cupcakes and a beautiful cake.
Tomorrow Trust held a gala dinner on the 13th of October 2015, which was sponsored by our partner Cell C. The main aim of the gala dinner was to thank all our partners and donors for making the past 10 years a success. The Tomorrow Trust’ journey has been one filled with both challenges, exciting moments, and a lot of impact on our 2000 beneficiaries. The reality of turning 10 has given us courage to push forward and knock on more doors; affording us more opportunities to continue changing lives of our children and youth.
The Gala was such a success, and all our expectations were exceedingly met. The Gala dinner gave us an opportunity to have all our partners, donors, and friends congregated in one room, who all share a common vision for the children and youth of South Africa. We were able to showcase what we have achieved in only 10 years. Our Holiday School learners made us proud, they serenaded the guest with two beautiful songs. The Post – Secondary students eloquently shared with our guests who they are and what they are studying. It was a special moment when Kim called onto the stage a few alumni, who are a testament to the success of the Tomorrow Trust model of excellence.
This journey always starts with trepidation – will I actually be invited? Will that much desired invitation appear in my inbox? To receive an invitation to attend Skoll is the first aspect to the excitement. When it arrives my blood pressure raises and all of a sudden the journey begins.Read More›
