Seven Passes Golf Day Sponsorship 2017

DataDot Embrace Community Core Value and Sponsor Golf Day

Seven Passes Golf Day a Great Success

One of DataDotSA’s core values is looking out for the community and participating in several fundraisers during the year – one of which is to sponsor the Seven Passes Golf Day. (Read more on our Socio Development projects).

The funds raised at The Seven Passes Golf Day goes towards helping hundreds of underprivileged children in the Touwsranten / Hoekwil Rural Community. Seven Passes is a registered Non-Profit Organisation (065-133 NPO) helping prevent violence and provide youth support in Touwsranten and the rural area surrounding Hoekwil. They hope to build on their experience and expand further into the Garden Route.

Over 9 years ago Hoekwil experienced youth gang violence on commercial farms. Farmers, business people from George and members of the Hoekwil and Touwsranten community came together to find a solution which involved setting up The Seven Passes Initiative as a community-based organisation (CBO). Since 2008 their understanding of the effects of poverty, alcohol abuse and domestic violence on families in this community has grown.

Since the advent of democracy improvements in the economy have not directly resulted in sustainable reductions of criminal violence. Rather, high levels of violence have limited the positive impact that periods of growth in the economy have had. Research shows that violent crime is one of the key factors that hinders business growth. This limits job creation and local economic growth. Simply put, high levels of violence profoundly limit the potential of large numbers of people to productively contribute to society.

Working closely with the ISS, The Seven Passes Initiative focused on youth development and education in an effort to try and prevent youth involvement in crime through quality after-school care.

The Initiative currently has nine permanent and three part time staff members - a director, two education facilitators, four parenting facilitators, a driver, a cook, two assistant cooks, and a research assistant. It depends on a wide range of people and expertise, often in a completely voluntary capacity, to support their work which is directly in line with the national and provincial government’s drive to reduce entrenched inequality, reduce violence and increase safety.

It is also directly in line with the identification by the Western Cape Government of quality after school care as a priority for the Province.

Did you know.........
Microdots can be applied to any item of value to uniquely identify an asset?

Apart from providing currently over 3.7 million vehicles with their own DNA - microdots, or as we like to call them DataDots, can be applied to any asset of value. This means that if the valuable item or asset is stolen and recovered it can be linked back to the owner provided the owner has registered on our DataDot app.
