Inclusive Society Institute (ISI) CEO, Daryl Swanepoel, met with the founder of the Gift of the Givers Foundation, Dr Imtiaz Sooliman, on Saturday morning, 6 November 2021. The two organisations are exploring areas of cooperation.
Discussions evolved around the desire and ways to achieve an Inclusive society. Dr Sooliman shared his ideas as how to restore the hope and dignity of the most vulnerable in society, rebuilding prosperous communities and empowering leaders of tomorrow. Much of the discussion also focussed on strategies to rebuild the South African economy.
The ISI is currently involved in extensive research into the development of a strategy to rejuvenate the South African economy, and has much to learn from the pragmatism employed by the Gift of the Givers. It was agreed that the two organisations will further their deliberations in this regard.
The two organisations will follow up this exploratory discussion with a more formal engagement aimed at solidifying concrete cooperation.
