Crime Victim's Support Event

This event is aimed at dealing with the increasing number of victims of crime and their healing, as well as assisting parolees in reintegrating with society, considering the high number of murders, rapes and contact crimes that Ocean View experiences every year. This event will not only help us reduce these numbers but also ensure that we maintain a low number of criminal incidences

Add A Smile

They are challenging everyone to pick a day to walk around your park; neighborhood; beach; river and suburb and collect bottle tops and drop them off at the following Libraries: Pinelands, Meadowridge, Brackenfell, Somerset West and Cleremont Library . Volunteers are encouraged to host a casual day at schools on the last Friday of the semester which ties in with World Smile Day 7th October in aid of Operation Smile and pay in with cash and/ or tops!

Our Pillars

Communities are not built with spreadsheets.

We make Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) more immediate and meaningful for individuals and organisations by providing specialist software and paperless consulting services.

Imagine if Monitoring and Evaluation was not mainly about funding, compliance and mandatory reports - but gave you something useful in return? We believe that by improving the collection and reporting of data for M&E, organisations can gain real-time insights to improve their programmes and strategies. With M&E information organised more centrally and timeously, reporting can become an important decision-making tool.
Our individual profiles capture and reflect progress and experience across a range of skills through programme participation. Hard and soft skills gained through volunteering activities and in using the software are also captured - adding rigour and metrics to skills that are often difficult to track.
The Social Collective offers web tools for the collection, storage and reporting of data. It is designed to be used by entire organizations - from fieldworker to director. It offers real-time views of community activity and performance - giving organizations faster insights and verified reports to make actionable decisions.

Stories About Communities, By Communities

Opportunities to make a change may change you.

The color splash event was an eye opening event. It taught me that gathering money should sometimes be fun and educational. The event was hosted raise funds for the organization so that it can grow and not rely on their members to donate. Activities done on the day included paint and music fun was the order of the day. Even though the event didn't go as planned as some people who were invited didn't show up but still the event went ahead and some community members who attended were pleased and said the youth should focus more on doing such and not on alcohol and pregnancy issues.

Cleaner Nyaope campaign addict’s workshop was held at Sethokga Park to help victims of Nyaope. Cleaner Nyaope Campaign it’s a youth development project aimed at assisting the youth of Tembisa whom are affected by the scourge of Nyaope drugs. The campaign started mid 2016 at Sethokga Park in Tembisa. The Park which is now a haven for addicts and drugs dealers is problematic for the community, and our intervention with the support of social workers include referrals of addicts to rehabilitation centres, sports activities and provision of meals during activities days. The campaign is coordinated by Cleaner Nyaope, Tembisa EMM social development, Vuka Clever, Life 4 U Foundation, Morning star and other partners. We thank volunteers who came to support the initiative.

"The more books you read, the taller the step ladder you create to climb to the top and catch your shining star". Thee amazing day of the 7th of September 2017. An event was created at a school called Masteliso Secondary School in Soweto. The read a book day event which inspires kids to see and know the importance of having and reading a book in their live's, how it impacts their intellectual skill's in everyday life. The purpose of this event was too celebrate the national READ A BOOK WEEK!! Getting people to get used to reading a book, it can be a novel or short story, as long it will benefit you at the end of a chapter. Throughout the event question were asked. A few fruitful questions where asked: What inspires you to read a book? Why is it important to read a book? What are the benefits of having a book and reading it? A sentence you can share to someone who doesn't know the value of a book? What value do you get from reading a book? The amazing responses were: You can improve your reading skills, you can benefit from it because it will teach you some powerful facts which you didn't know. The pictures inspire me to read depending on whether what I'm gonna read where I'll use it. Reading books gives the reader knowledge and excitement of some new knowledge. A sentence I could share to someone is "wow! That book is wonderful if you read it you'd wanna read more about it, don't you wanna try I'll assist where I can. A book is a sorcery that contains information that needs to be relieved to people by only reading  The article( *JAMES JOYCE*) and the way it is written..( *A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN*) Sentence to share: A portrait of artist as a young man is James Joyce's magnificent and how classic evocation of a catholic boyhood in Ireland, and the  struggle through sin and sanctity towards self-expression. It helps me to believe in myself and to make myself a first priority. (that's not being selfish but being humble). It increases the intellectuality of a mindset which makes you wiser and open to new learning adventures. I learned and benefited a lot from this event.
