Going with a friend to a spa today, where they're going to massage, pluck, manicure and buff me until I look and feel almost new. Many thanks to my friend Christelle, who is treating me. Much appreciated. Anyhoo, I woke up early to publish on the OneLove and Kwanda sites, so life continues as normal in my absence:-)
If you want to know how the Kwanda TV series ended, check out this article. The short story is team Kwakwatsi in the Free State won the R1million prize and R500 000 from the Department of Social Development. Team Tjakastad in the Free State took second place and won the Dreamfields Project prize, courtesy of Old Mutual. All runners-up (Mthwalume, Pefferville, Lephephane and Tjakastad) also get R100 000, courtesy of Soul City. And judging by the work that these communities have already done, this money will be used very effectively to improve needy communities.
Also note that while the TV programme has ended, the Kwanda web site will continue to be updated. Currently, we're looking for inspiring stories of people who have worked to improve their communities. Send stories to firstname.lastname@example.org
