Things are going pretty well for WhizzKids right now. With the beginning of the new school year we got permission to start our programme in Lamont. Now we have 2 new schools on bord in Lamontville, at least two new schools in our pilot area Edendale and our volunteers in iLembe finally get the chance to show us what they have learned as they as well start their courses with the new term.
So there is a lot of work for us to do...
To coup better with all the upcoming tasks we now set up different teams. Head of the new Operations Team is Paul Kelly our former Football Development Manager. He and his team make sure that our field staff gets all the support they need. While our new Office Team with our CEO as Head bolsters the other teams by making sure the programme is funded and ensuring all information, documents, materials etc. within the programme and to the outside world flow smoothly and on time. And our former Project Manager Tom got finally promoted into his favourite position as Head of Research, where he and his team will measure if we get the effects we want and/or makes sure that we change what has to be changed, keep on going with what we should keep on going and dissmiss what doesn′t work for us...
Unfortunately most of us woun′t be around for the first results on these changes, as our time at WhizzKids United ends in a few weeks. But new volunteers are already on the way to take over... and we are sure they will do a far better job, than we did
Well, let′s hope The WhizzKids Volunteers
