MOT SA Courage to Care Global Grant project launch

MOT South Africa in proud partnership with The Rotary Club of Wynberg, Haugaland Upper Secondary School, Karmøy Rotary Club and Rotary Districts 2250 and 2275 as well as the Rotary Foundation held their project launch of the Courage to Care project at Fairmount High School in Grassy Park on Tuesday 20 October 2020.

MOT SA is extremely proud to announce that the Western Cape Education Department has fully endorsed this “values-driven programme” that will be done to teaching our future leaders positive life skills within our community.

The launch was attended by 49 community leaders that consisted of SAPS officials, Western Cape Education Development (WCED) officials, Pastor, Imaam, Educators, Principals, Employees based in the community.

The project is set to take place at Fairmount, Lotus and Zeekoevlei High Schools in February/March 2021 to educate the teachers to uplift the youth in their classrooms and in the community to make better choices and creating a warmer and safer place for all.

Justin Schonegevel, President of the Rotary Club of Wynberg shared that MOT will be the dream that Martin Luther King spoke about in his “I have a dream” speech about creating a warmer, safer and better place for all and shared that just because the dream takes longer to reach, it does not mean you should give up.

Mr Terence Klassen, Principal of Fairmount High School shared that he was proud that community leaders were in attendance at the launch as it takes a village or community to raise a child.  

Mr Ismail Teladia, Senior Curriculum Planner: Life Orientation/Life Skills from the Western Cape Education Department (WCED) shared about the partnership that the WCED has entered by incorporating the Life Orientation curriculum with MOT and his keenness to start the MOT Programme in all the schools in the Western Cape. He stressed the importance of partnering with organizations such as MOT that helps by equipping educators to become more effective in delivering the Life Orientation curriculum.

The current Government COVID regulations have been strictly adhered to that included the wearing of masks, sanitizing of hands and social distancing.

We would like to thank Rotary Foundation and International, the community leaders and Schools for making all this possible and we look forward to the start of a beneficial relationship within the Grassy Park community.
