A normal Monday morning @ HOPE Cape Town

What happens in an NGO in between all the news, events and charity functions? It’s the normality of work, all HOPE Community Health Workers report to their respective clinic and are committed again for the first day of often hard and challenging work at the Primary Health Care Facility. The senior staff is meeting every Monday morning at 9 am for an hour to catch up and communicate what is on the agenda for everybody during the week. There is also time to reflect on the last week or anything which happened in between. Besides all portfolios reported on there is always the questions about possible visitors at HOPE Cape Town or questions which have been arisen from previous days. At 10 am the so-called back office is meeting which includes all the people covering “marketing and fundraising”. As HOPE Cape Town raises most funds from private sponsors or other non-profit NGO’s there are always items on the list to discuss like how to write proposals, how to report hack; basically all the communication structures. We are doing charity work and we have to talk about it – otherwise possible donors and sponsors will not find us. After that there are various other meetings – the PowerPoint presentation has to be updated, the new “HOPE to HOME” program needs attention, and even the very trivial question of access to parking at a University can bind some workforce for hours.
The beauty of HOPE Cape Town is among other things, that there is a very motivated team of people interacting on so many different levels. And exciting developments happen in the moment: on the care level the HOPE to HOME project has been launched last week  and HOPE Cape Town coordinates the after-care of children with HIV, AIDS and TB discharged from the children’s hospital. The family and children support program is going from strength to strength thanks to a donation from “Ein Herz fuer Kinder” from Germany. On the level of information for donors and sponsors a new HOPE Cape Town flyer is in development and with it comes a new design for the webpage, reflecting all the actual work done by HOPE Cape Town. Watch the space 🙂
