Thanks Penny and we look forward to seeing you in the south 🙂

Wonderful and congratulation!
However, I have a question: Why are there so many more boys than girls in the pictures? Does this mean that far more boys than girls are involved or is it just a coincidence that there were not more girls around when the picture was taken?

Hi Christa,

Just a coincidence in the photo 🙂

Hi Christa, Jamo answered your question, but just to add: (1) Of our scholars, there is a 50:50 gender ration; (2) Of our adult students, we have an 80% female enrolment; (3) Of our 80 staff, 75% are women; (4) Of our Heads of Campus, 75% are women; (5) and of our Executive Committee, 80% are women. We were delighted, in 2016, to win the PWC National Empowerment of Women in the Community award! I am clearly in the minority, but I feel very privileged to be part of an organisation that is breaking all kinds of rural stereotypes.

Dear Al – Your involvement over the years means more to us than you know. Your donations are always generous, but we always also look forward to your kind words of encouragement. The growing voices of encouragement from around the world mean that people care about a new kind of education and they believe that we need to reimagine how learning works. We can’t wait to see what 2025 looks like 🙂
