CHILD Welfare SA - KwaDukuza chairperson Sandeep Oudhram flew KwaDukuza’s flag high when he delivered a presentation on fundraising at the Child Welfare South Africa General Assembly this past week in Bloemfontein.

Also attending the assembly was Pravin Sham (treasurer), Penny Dhaver (senior social work manager), Karnegie Govender (social work manager) and Bongani Ndlovu (community development worker).
More than 100 societies from the nine different provinces attended.

Oudhram’s presentation was based on the fundraising projects initiated by Child Welfare SA-KwaDukuza.

He shared with delegates how the current recession is affecting child welfare societies and highlighted the negative impact of the recession and high unemployment rates on the income generated from fundraising projects.

Oudhram also shared fundraising ideas with the delegates.
He announced the launch of Project L3 - Live, Love and Learn and how the new fundraising concept can benefit child welfare societies.
He encouraged all welfare societies in the country to participate in the project that involves the sale of wrist bands and badges depicting the child protection theme. Oudhram also highlighted the Winter Fair, street collections and jumble sales that are held annually to sustain the society and discussed the importance of marketing strategies to encourage support from the community.

He offered to assist and guide other societies with fundraising initiatives.

Oudhram’s presentation received an overwhelming response from the delegates.
Many societies expressed keen interest in Project L3 and the Winter Fair.
Oudhram has since been invited by societies nationally to share his fundraising concepts with them.

According to Dhaver they were also given an opportunity to showcase the society’s projects at the General Assembly.

“An exhibition stand was set up to show case our community development projects, Project L3 and the Groutville Community Care Homes [the largest cluster foster care scheme administered by a society in Kwa-Zulu Natal].
“The exhibition stand gave our society an opportunity to market Project L3 nationally as well. The response was very positive and encouraging. Delegates were very impressed by the work done and commended the society’s projects.”
