It was a great honour for Julie Hay, the Director of the local NPO Singakwenza, to be presented with the award for Social Entrepreneur for 2015 at the regional Businesswomen’s Association of South Africa (BWASA) Achievement Awards gala dinner recently.
This award is presented to the candidate who has found an innovative way to address social issues, who has set up a sustainable organisation, who has clear and transparent financials, and who has inspired others.
“It is such wonderful recognition of the amazing work that the whole Singakwenza team has done to make my dream reality, and we are so grateful to everyone who has played a role in getting the organisation to this point” says Julie.
The African proverb on the table at the Awards dinner, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together,” is so appropriate for this amazing organisation, which acknowledges each person of helping them to “go far”.
