As part of its annual social responsibility project, Dovetail Business Solutions donated a lump sum to non-profit organization Network of Caring, which will assist in providing education facilities and supplies to the less fortunate in Gauteng.
Network of Caring is a significance movement that aims to bring together those with the need for help and those with the need to help, that both may experience significance. Network of Caring is also the philanthropic arm of Network TwentyOne Inc. – the leadership development organisation founded by Jim and Nancy Dornan.
Network TwentyOne’s Independent business owners give generously to Network of Caring’s initiatives around the world. The organisation notes that one of Network of Caring’s largest initiatives has been helping children with World Vision a partnership that has existed since 1998.
Since then thousands of Network TwentyOne IBOs have sponsored children, and Network TwentyOne has been identified as one of World Vision’s largest corporate sponsors.
Network of Caring South Africa 2014
As part of its local projects for 2014, Network of Caring constructed a school for disabled children in Cosmo City, Gauteng, based on the success of the Tembisa project which Dovetail assisted with in 2013.
Network TwentyOne Southern Africa Operations Manager Liza Tappenden notes that the response to the erection of the new school has been great and that the project is running with qualified staff.
Network of Caring also partnered with Amway in April and raised funds for 5000 Tutu desks which were distributed to children in Gauteng and Kwazulu Natal.
As part of its ongoing efforts for 2014, the organisation will be distributing food hampers to children in pediatric oncology wards in later November for the festive season. Tappenden notes that the demand for these hampers grows each year as it provides nutritious meals for the kids while at home over Christmas.
