calendarIconNew year, new activities! The office officially opened on 3 January but some staff took additional leave at the beginning of the year. Take a look at what we’ve got up to in January:

13 January: Nandi attends the Communiversity of South Africa’s 11th graduation event in Westlake.

16 January: FunDza is watching TV again! Wait, what? Yes, it’s true. Towards the middle-end of last year, we spent one afternoon a week watching an inspiring or educational video – either a TedTalk or a clip that has resonated with us. We have started doing this again, and on the 16th we started this awesome tradition again. We started watching the opening plenary talks of Online Educa Berlin 2017. Check the video out here.

23 January: Dorothy kicked off the FunDza new year with a workshop for the staff here at FunDza HQ in Muizenberg. A refresher on ‘writing good essays’ we got our A into G with workshops for 2018.

23 and 24 January: iGold consultants Christina, Deon, Sharilyn, Mario, Holly and Sukira joined us from all over the world (Germany, United States, Canada, Italy and even a local South Africa) to facilitate strategy workshops with staff. We investigated how to build resilience in our organisation.

27 January: Nandi and Sonja host a creative writing workshop with Sakhisizwe Youth Development Project in Hout Bay.

30 January: In FunDza’s video and discussion we watched the second half of the opening plenary to Online Educa Berlin 2017. Find it here.
