Reimagining our future

Reimagining our future

By Nomsa Daniels, Chief Executive Officer, The Graça Machel Trust

I am honoured to have been invited to contribute a piece to Inyathelo’s 2016-2017 annual report under the theme of “Reimagining Our Future”. As a starting point, it is worth reminding ourselves of the steadfast and important role that advocacy organisations, like Inyathelo and the Graça Machel Trust, play in these tumultuous times. Advocacy is defined as “the act or process of supporting a cause”. In the case of the Graça Machel Trust, our cause is rooted in improving the lives of Africa’s women and children, to realise our vision of creating caring societies that value social justice, equal opportunity and sustainable development.

Beyond Sports

Sharing their love of sport are Mac Hennessy from Philadelphia, Sahara Gipson from New Jersey, Lauren Kudronowicz from Wisconsin and Nicole Liddy from southern New York, Stephaun Marshall from New Jersey and Cassie Meyers-Anacortes from Washington.

Western Cape non-profit organisations (NPOS) that use sport to help uplift youth in disadvantaged communities got a welcome boost in July when 24 fit and enthusiastic students from America and England volunteered their services for three weeks. They were linked to Beyond Sports, an organisation set up seven years ago to create opportunities for student athletes to enjoy life-changing cross-cultural experiences.
