A local social entrepreneur has been honoured at the tenth annual philanthropy awards of Inyathelo.

Inyathelo, a non-profit organisation, works to strengthen civil society organisations and grow local philanthropy to support a vibrant democracy in South Africa.

Surfer and social entrepreneur Tim Conibear received the community sports development award at the event at the South African Institute for Advancement in Cape Town on Thursday 3 November.

Conibear’s organisation, Waves 4 Change, offers a surf therapy programme in Muizenberg for children from Lavender Hill, Khayelitsha and Masiphumelele. The programme enables children between 11 and 14 years who have experienced trauma to acquire new coping skills and personal strength through surfing.

Conibear was one of five philanthropists to be awarded. Nominations came from peers, members of the communities in which the philanthropists work and the non-profit organisations that they support. The winners are chosen by a panel of judges.

Nomfundo Walaza, acting executive director of Inyathelo, says: “Our awards seek to inspire others to give by recognising the incredible rolemodels who live and work among us.”
