EACH year, the St Anne’s Old Girls’ Guild recognises one of its members for dedicated service above and beyond the call of duty.

The 2016 St Anne Award was presented to Annabel Rosholt as part of the Old Girls’ Day celebrations.

Rosholt addressed both the St Anne’s Old Girls and current pupils, sharing with them the extraordinary story of her determination to help disadvantaged families. She is the project director of the Stellenbosch Community Development Programme, which she started in Kayamandi 10 years ago. She has built it in to a remarkable, self-sustaining, donor funded, non-profit organisation, which evaluates 2 300 children in the community and supplies those who are malnourished with a daily meal.

The SCDP has also initiated a food parcel programme for parents, encouraged the establishment of food gardens at homes and helps parents identify and create income earning opportunities through training and mentorship programmes. Rosholt is making a dramatic difference in so many people’s lives and is a deserving winner of the 2016 St Anne Award.
