on Is Hazyview The African City Of The Future?

This is great news Ryan. Hazyview is developing rapidly. I remember visiting Hazyview for the first time about 38 years ago. It was a very small village with a fuel station and a few small shops. In the last 10 years it has become a major business and shopping hub. It is just logical that it has now become the eduacation center of the Lowveld.

Wow, 38 years ago! That’s amazing Marinda, and yes, we believe it can become a pioneering town beyond just tourism!

The program will help to slow down the growing digital divide and higher youth unemployment in the future–TOTALLY VISIONARY.
The rapid pace of program growth and expansion is absolutely remarkable–all with measurable results. Congrats to Kate and Ryan and their entire team. We can’t wait to visit Hazyview upon our return in July.

Hi Vin – thanks! We are excited to see the All Heart crew too. Looking forward to sharing more measurable results, but we are really excited to be building a “deep” programme that has the potential to scale to other rural African areas.

This is a wonderful project!!!! Congratulations to everyone involved, and also a gold star ⭐️ to you all.

Thank you Victoria 🙂

Ah , seeing the wider picture, essential for businesses these days , well some anyway.

Agreed Ian. What’s great is when we can come up with solutions that make “profit” sense for a business and still show positive social impact beyond the balance sheet.

Indeed Hazyview is! Very exciting developments, Ryan as you help people see each other’s common interests to build opportunities for so many brilliant people. Bravo and much love from the States.

Thank you Susan. It was such an honor to have you at the recent launch of our new campus. Thank you from the whole team!

Ryan, it is so refreshing to read such a positive blog. This program is wonderful in that it gives young people an incentive to succeed in the world. This is certainly one way that modern technology is a positive thing and it gives young people a sense of worth, experience and hopefully gainful employment. Thanks to you and all at Londolozi for partnering to help young people. Truly heartwarming.

Thanks Leonie, we are extremely lucky to have Londolozi partner with us. They have always brought ideas, connections, resources and of course, love and encouragement (as it can be a scary place growing up in the NGO world). Thanks for your kind words 🙂

This makes me smile broadly on a Sunday morning in Hawai’i. Aloha.

Thanks Judy – I was “relatively” closer to you than normal on Sunday morning 🙂 Next time I’ll make the hop across to your part of the world!

I’ll be waiting with open arms and a smile??

Its such a privilege to be part of this wonderful African family. They shape the #future, not just thinking about it. The #creativity of the team around Kate, Ryan and Maria with all the teaching assistants and helpers is unbelievable strong. More partners will join the #ecosystem. Stay tall!
