Firstly on behalf of all at Keep the Dream 196 I would like to say a heartfelt thank you for your contributions and support of our organisation over the years. Thanks to you we have been able to offer 2,456 children support.
Imagine if the contribution you made to Keep the Dream196 could automatically double?


Imagine that your contribution could result in double the impact?
Well, you don’t have to imagine, it is actually possible!


An anonymous donor has contacted Global Giving and is committed to MATCHING every new monthly donor donation that is made to Keep the Dream196 during the month of December.


Its no secret, the tough economic times have taken their toll on NGO’s all over South Africa and Keep the Dream196 is no exception. We are 10 years old this year and are determined to keep our organization alive! We are actively focused on ensuring a sustainable source of income for Keep the Dream196 through monthly giving, this is where you come in, and we simply cannot do it without you.


For just $10 you allow a child to participate in our program for One whole year. This will allow the children of Limpopo a chance to live a good and a fruitful life.


So who am I helping?


Meet Ronny Sekwela who joined us at aged 12yrs and is now 22years old (ADD IN A PICTURE OF RONNY)
Ronny Before he joined the Keep the Dream196 Scouts programme he had the following to say about himself “ I was a terrible young man. My friends and I used to beat other children for no good reason. The worst thing about me is I was a great gambling animal. I would steal any of my parent’s cents and rob out their change when they would send me to stores or shops so I could gamble with the money. I also slept with many girlfriends”

Ronny now – “So Keep the Dream196 has changed my life completely as I am away from these hectic things I was doing in the past. My future without Keep The Dream196 was learning to smoke and dying of AIDS or being shot as a thief”. Ronny is now the chairman of Marula Rover Crew and works for Momentum after an internship with IBM following completion of a Bachelors of computer science. Ronny was also chosen as South Africa’s Community Builder of the Year in 2010 and sent to India for 10 days where he was selected as World Youth Community Builder because of his Community Work through Keep The Dream196.

If Keep the Dream196 can no longer exist, it means that 2,456 children just like Ronny may not have the opportunity to experience and live their inherent potential.
