The first ever ‘Leading from the Heart’ gathering, hosted by Billie Jean King, Kate Groch and Boyd Varty took place in New York City last night. Our intention was to bring together a group of people, connected by the Good Work Foundation pink thread, to discuss the amazing examples of beauty and collaboration that emerge when we lead from the heart. Our Good Work Foundation CEO, Kate Groch, and GWF USA Foundation Trustee, Boyd Varty, shared their story about how their travels across Africa led to the growth of an NGO in South Africa that now provides world-class education to over 7000 young people and children every week. The legendary Billie Jean King reminded us that success in life comes from protecting important relationships, continual learning (and learning how to learn) and developing problem solving skills. The inspiring group that gathered for this event continue to remind us to look for the beauty inside of us and strive for a kinder and more inclusive world. #LeadingFromTheHeart #LiftLearnLead #ReimagineEducation #EdTech #LifelongLearning #Equality

How many of you found real purpose in the first job you ever had? Well, say hi to Mcondisi Luhlanga. Mcondisi is the team leader on our @yes4youth (Youth Employment Service or YES) service desk that operates from our Hazyview Digital Learning Campus. He manages three more agents, all of them YES interns themselves. Many of you may know about YES, an initiative to create one million jobs for South Africa’s youth. For youth looking to be placed in this programme, Mcondisi and his team are often the first port of call, helping young people to log their details onto the YES database and answering any questions they may have. Not only have Mcondisi and his team developed invaluable digital skills in their first job, but the function of their job is helping South Africa’s unemployed youth connect to opportunities. They are heroes. They have immense purpose. And we tell them that all the time. . . . #YES #WonderfilledLearning #ReimagineEducation #EducationRevolution #EducationforEmployment

Justicia Digital Learning Campus was established in 2016 and was the first of our satellite campuses forming part of GWF’s Hazyview Cluster of Digital Learning Campuses. There are currently 60 young adults in the Bridging Academy programme – 60 young people from Justicia village who now have access to world-class education and increased hope for meaningful future employment. We wouldn’t be able to offer this opportunity to the young people of the Justicia community without the support of our campus partner, Singita, who believe, as much as we do, in reimagining education in rural South African communities. Thank you for your tireless support and partnership @singita_! . . . #ReimagineEducation #ReimagineEducationwithUs #WonderfilledLearning #SabiSandsWildtuin #sabisandsgamereserve #Partnership #Supporters #gratitude

For Human Rights Day 2019, we asked our students, team and friends what human rights actually means to them, how do they exercise their human rights, or what are the most important human rights that South Africa should be focusing on today. In honour of those who have come before us, and the reason we have this day in South Africa, we're sharing a few of these beautiful thoughts and expressions with our tribe! Check out the full album on Facebook. . . . #HumanRightsDay2019 #ReimadgineEducation #WonderfilledLearning #EducationRevolution #SouthAfrica #HumanRights

And they’re off! This weekend the Sabi Sand School’s Safari took the first ever group of learners from Hundzukani School into the Sabi Sand Wildtuin. Huge thanks to Lion Sands, the More Community Trust, and Sabi Sand Pfunanani Trust for helping us making this happen and making a plan to keep the children dry in the rain! . . .
