the movement forgood @ WITS University

The movement forgood was on the move, as we connected with learners and NGO's @ the volunteer fair of Wits University (20/04/2012).
Forgood, a social platform, movement & catalyst for positive social action was honoured to be amongst a host of non government organizations that are making an awesome impact in their respective societies. Learners @ WITS came around in their inspiring numbers to visit & establish how they can get involved in the work & play of bringing about healthy change in our broader communities. It was also awesome to facilitate "race of life" an experiential learning exercise that informs & brings understanding to the social gaps or degrees of separation that exist and prevail in society. In the middle of the volunteer & NGO fair we engaged in conversation and dialogue about the social gaps & continued disparities in our society. Learners of WITS & NGO leaders put forward their inspiring and challenging thoughts as to bringing about positive change in our everyday world. I am honoured to work alongside Karuna Singh as the program and project coordinator of the wits volunteer program forgood. Heartlines & Young&Able as collaborating & initiating organizations, have landed this home grown idea as a movement forgood. It has been awesome to have had the support, interest, & commitment of the student development leadership unit,& the WITS volunteer program of WITS University. Please connect and stay with the movement forgood that is learning, growing and developing.
