This week, we dip into the archive for a chat with PeacePlayers International – South Africa Managing Director S’bo Vilakazi. Last August, he spoke with Diane Macpherson of East Coast Radio in Durban about PPI’s work in South Africa. Coming right as the global financial crisis peaked, S’bo spoke of PPI – SA’s resiliency in tough times, as well as the support its gotten from the community:
You know, what’s been uplifting is that despite the challenges and despite the drastic cuts that we’ve had to make is that the schools have said to us, “You know what, we understand what you are going through. We’re going through the same thing. Is there any way we can help?”
We’re proud to say that now, with the help of its partner schools and coaches, PPI – SA has emerged from the toughest of times an even stronger organization than before. The article stands as a reminder not only of the impact that PPI – SA is continuing to make in Durban, but of the wonderful people who make that impact possible.
