Endorsements

Endorsement 1

I found BBN interesting, inspiring and exciting! I have absolutely no doubt that this kind of initiative is precisely what is needed for our country. Dr. Gerhard van Rensburg, author of “The Leadership Challenge in Africa” and “Thoughts on Leadership.”

Endorsement 2

I must admit that I found the concept of BBN revolutionary and daring but ingenious in its intent. Our subsequent meeting served to reinforce my preliminary view that the BBN Community Plan has tremendous potential to offer value to all the stakeholders (General Public, Business & the Youth) and therefore society at large. Louis Mukiraine CEO, Proficient Logic - Business Consultants

Endorsement 3

Your vision for South Africa is incredible and I love and admire your concepts of job creators and social entrepreneurs. The Institute of Futurology will surely endorse and support you. Thank you for your passion and beautifully conceived plan to take our country to a far, far better place. - Michael Lee, CEO Institute of Futurology

Endorsement 4

As a result of our three year partnership with the learners at the Sinenjongo High School, Joe Slovo Park, Milnerton, we received the following feedback: The level of self-esteem of the learners increased to the point where the matric pass rate went up from 27% to 97% over a three year period. The learners are much more determined to do well in their studies. A number of learners on drugs have joined the programme. Furthermore, some of the learners started little businesses which have made a contribution to the income of their families. I strongly urge BBN to continue building the bridges of hope and scope at Sinenjongo”. Mrs. Napote, School Principal.

Endorsement 5

Addsure Insurance follow through as promised to the BBN students:
Vuyisani Kala is new employed temporally at Addsure, three days a week and commences the Paddocks STSM course next month (6 month course) being our first BBN Yes I Can - Mountain 3 graduate to go through to our Addsure undergraduate scheme (learning to be a managing agent). Next year we have committed Loyiso, Siya and Banele (presently in matric) to the same apprenticeship program. The intention is that they find their way to becoming fully qualified Portfolio Managers in Sectional Title within a year or two of leaving school. If they get up to speed with ability, capability and enough training and confidence, they could earn R10,000 per month pretty early on and later form their own managing agencies. I have also mustered NAMAs support for this by way of a pilot program in the Western Cape which may follow with an Educational Trust.

How does this affect BBN – well, I think it’s fair to say that these 4 candidates wouldn’t be this far if they hadn’t risen to the top at BBN, showed their commitment and taught themselves basic typing skills and done some further training with us here at Addsure. Four successes as a result of BBN.

Perhaps in future, we can source some more potentials from aspiring top students with potential if they complete Mountain 3 – possible for the 2015 year.

Another BBN M3 learner with matric (Wonga) has a good job at cash converters Montagu gardens – on the floor, full time employed with a nice salary. Our friend (another Cash Converters owner) tested him, was impressed, and a branch took him on. Another successfully placed BBN M3 student. Mike Addison, CEO Addsure Sectional Title Property Insurance.
