Community Transport Support Programme Annual Event
At our annual event of the Community Transport Support Programme, 34 organisations that benefit from our programme through Golden Arrow Bus Services were represented. Various beneficiaries showcased their work with live performances or presentations; these included Magnet Theatre, The Cape Town Opera, Zip Zap Circus, Cheetah Outreach and the Cape Town Science Centre. The event provided an exciting and entertaining opportunity for networking amongst our beneficiaries and for learning about the work that the Foundation supports.
The theme for this year was the creative power of resilience. Courtney Cupido, one of our bursary recipients who graduated with a degree in Law in 2016, spoke about the challenges she faced as a student due to her visual impairment, and how she managed not only to overcome these challenges but to turn them into opportunities for change and development.
