Our science and approach is simple, we connect the people in our local neighbourhoods with a project, and we talk to each other.
Our first port of call has been to recruit 10 women in various forms of leadership from different corners of the city of Johannesburg to represent it’s not about me locally within their given communities.
Our members are referred to as Community Ambassadors.
We have now started a series of it’s not about me workshops in which we explain how easy it is to give what you have, where you are at, in the present moment when you see a need at a very personal and individual level. We also discuss bigger community projects that the company has committed to and allow people who feel that they could meet certain needs both personally and through their own businesses to become involved.
It’s Not About Me members are also invited to engage personally or as a family in the company’s projects they are supporting by participating in community events or missions trips.
The next step will be through leadership development by asking our Community Ambassadors to engage with 10 leaders in their own community and follow the same developmental steps and in so doing breathe love and life back into closed and guarded communities, not only activating the community to serve through kindness, but directly meeting the needs within those given communities. Within the next 12-24 months we would like to roll out these projects nationally with strategic leaders in all provinces around South Africa.
Each person is registered on a database highlighting their PROMISE AND DEDICATION that is then aligned to a charity that needs that skillset.
