Tshegetso Community Projects – A CAR WASH FRENZY DAY (27 October 2012)



Tshegetso Community Projects invites everyone to join in a car wash fundraising event where all funds raised will go into donating:

  • educational toys
  • stationery
  • toiletry hampers

to young kindergarten kids who are orphaned or from disadvantaged families in Oukasie.

*R60.00 covers a full interior and exterior car wash with a wors roll on the house while awaiting your car to be washed.
*Shelter will be provided for; camp chairs can be brought along as well as other preferred refreshments.

Tshegetso is an organisation started by a group of former Tsogo students that seeks to give back, by helping out youth and young kids in the surrounding communities, also focusing on other age groups through getting the youth involved. Tshegetso was created not only for giving back, but also to serve as an opportunity for us as the members of the organisation to form strong bonds with one another and re-instill a sense of community within us and those we help.

Please spread the word.

Warmest Regards,

Rirhandzu Marivate
Communications Officer


Economic and Investment Opportunities in Africa

This is another of our Alumni contributed articles. Hope you enjoy it.

Background (1960 – 1989)

Africa (Source: http://familypedia.wikia.com/wiki/Africa)

Africa (Source: http://familypedia.wikia.com/wiki/Africa)

The African continent has been stuck in a period of economic stagnation and decay since the late 1960’s and 1970’s. As the winds of political change started sweeping through much of Africa during this period, political and liberation priorities overtook most other priorities – including sustaining economic development. The beginning of this period of political freedom for Africa coincided with a protracted but near-silent ideological war in the northern hemisphere – the Cold War!

Africa being a large provider of resources to the world became a playground for this ‘silent’ war. Many African political leaders simply became pawns of either the capitalist West or Soviet-linked powers. The priority on economic development unfortunately took a back-seat between the late 1960’s (as most of Africa started gaining independence) and a very notable year – 1989!

National Planning Comission Jam 2011


NPC JAM 2011

Objective of the NPC Jam:

The NPC Jam is one of the important instruments that will assist us to engage with the people of SA. In particular, we are reaching out to our youth, NGOs, community based organisations, associations, government officials and academics in a national dialogue about the challenges facing South Africa, vision 2030 as well as plans to reach that vision.

What is a Jam?:

A Jam – an award-winning IBM solution – is a collaborative, on-line brainstorming event designed to bring massive audiences together to discuss ideas surrounding important social, economic and business challenges. The National Planning Commission (NPC) — together with IBM — is hosting the NPC Jam from noon on Wednesday 28 September 2011 until noon on Saturday 1 October 2011 (72 hours).

What will be discussed during the Jam?

The Jam platform makes provision for discussion of various topics in a maximum of ten parallel discussion forums. It is proposed that topics related broadly to the 9 challenges and the vision for 2030 form the basis for the discussion. The proposed topics for discussion forums are:

1. Citizenry, Cohesion, Inclusion and Redress
2. Jobs
3. The Economy
4. Crime and Corruption
5. Public Service Performance
6. Education and training
7. Health and wellness
8. Infrastructure
