Vol 2, Issue 2, September 2014

be informed, updated, and inspired


Welcome to the second edition of The BC Newsletter in 2014! 

We are happy to share some interesting and inspiring snippets: positive feedback from several successful trainings and from a teacher in the field; insight into what it is like teaching in the UAE; and my opinion piece that was recently published in the Cape Times and Star newspapers as well as a radio interview on SAFM.

This month sees the start of the Kwena Basin Project, an exciting new project in Mpumalanga. Other upcoming events are also featured below.

Please share your ideas and suggestions with us as well! We enjoy hearing from you. Remember to follow us on Twitter.


Looking forward to seeing you at the Supportnet meeting on the 27 September.

Louis Benjamin.
