Over the past 15 years, it has grown beyond the sale of TOPES to an open source campaign through which schools, corporates, supporters and the general public celebrate Sunflower Day and raise funds for The Sunflower Fund.

In a country with many challenges more than 670,000 children are already benefiting from support given to adults in more than 850 schools.

This is happening because of you and others in the Partners for Possibility (PfP) community!
On Friday evening it was my privilege to receive the coveted WISE (World Innovation Summit for Education) Award in New York – on behalf of the PfP community.

It is the first time that the WISE Award is given to a South African organisation. We have reason to be very proud J.

I stood on the stage in the United Nations building (picture below) with much gratitude and appreciation for every person who has contributed to PfP over the last 8 years so the main purpose of this message is to say Thank You! None of this will have happened without the support of people in our community.

Please take a moment to acknowledge yourself as part of a WISE Award-winning community.   Read More...

The biggest challenge for offenders, once they complete their prison term and re-enter society is to participate meaningfully and productively in sustained, legitimate economic activity to earn a living and support their families. The academic entry level for film and TV production is historically low and success relies primarily on raw talent, creativity, passion, application, persistence and rigorous self-discipline. This provides a unique opportunity for offenders and parolees to be reintegrated into society and the economy through this sector.
