2020 is ushering in more than two decades worth of national democracy since South Africa’s elections in 1994 and like every other 26 year old adult, we’ve ditched our childhood dependencies, started ‘adulting’ and have our lives all together right? Dong! Wrong! Like most young grown up’s, we’re starting to realise that being an independent ‘born free’ adult is harder than it looks and that we actually need a whole lot more mentoring, guidance and support to be the mature peeps that we dream we want to be.
In 2012 the National Development Plan (NDP), was launched and updated in 2015, to map the journey that our country is on towards the 2030 vision of “A South Africa that belongs to all its people”. The NDP Planning Committee identified 6 key pillars that, if addressed, would strategically move our country forward and within each pillar, specific goals were identified and objectives set to act as a National Action Plan to reducing poverty and eliminating inequality.
So when we as Domino Foundation read the NDP and understood the goals, it affirmed that we are building towards the common vision for our beautiful country and her people. Through our Social Justice, Nutrition & Education initiatives, we’ve set out to change the narrative of our country to Unite our country, encourage Active Citizenry and Build the Capabilities of our nation.
Our Social Change theme for 2020 is ALIGNMENT, which is to keep positioning our vision, resources, partnerships and collaborations with like-minded #CHANGEMAKERS across our city, province and country. The research, monitoring, measurement and tracking indicators in all programmes and interventions work towards achieving the NDP goals to pull together on this social impact journey within Durban, KZN
So if you as an individual, within a company, Trust or Foundation are also working towards the NDP and are wanting to engage with transformation within South Africa, then please make contact so we can partner towards this national drive.
