Hard Times Builds Character

Like it or not, hard times are good for you. The old truth that it builds character, is as valid today as it was years ago when our grandparents told us so. When I think back to the times when I was under pressure, to pass examinations, to submit reports on time, to make plans for the survival of Abraham Kriel Childcare, I experienced both pain and growth.

A Brave Spirit in Social Change

This month saw the launch of a new social change initiative called ‘Dignify’. There would not be much to comment – good causes pop up all the time – but this game plan is very different from others. Without cloaking itself in some or other religion or belief caste, it wants to bring spirituality and human dignity to the core of social development in South Africa. It is a courageous and practical attempt at ‘transformation of the development approach’ and maybe it will not find rocky ground.

The results of the review have been captured in a policy briefing published by Khanya-aicdd.
