1. Share the work done to date on the strategy and identity of the forum,

  3. Introduce attendees to Impact Investing.

At the workshops, delegates once again affirmed the NPOs in education’s commitment to the principles and values of lifelong learning and expressed their support for the articulated strategy, vision, mission and purpose.

What was important for us is that delegates welcomed an association of NPOs in education collectively and collaboratively working for positive impact through education. An association which values accountability, inclusivity, innovation and advocacy.Delegates want a common representative voice!

This is what Ali Gordon from Ripple Reading expresses:
“The question arises as to whether we need to form an association of not-for-profit organisations working within the education sector… the answer received at Monday’s meeting which comprised a gathering of Gauteng practitioners, was a resounding “YES!”. We need a regulatory and networking body.”

At the same workshop:

  • Steering committee member, James Keevy confirmed the commitment from JET: “We are serious about funding and making a difference,” and
  • Rooksana Rajab, appointed to co-ordinate the NPOs in Education concurred: “We have to be passionate about education and transferring skills… be in it with heart and soul to make a difference”.
