Brand New Website - Launch

04 Aug 2011

It is with great excitement that we launch our new website that has been very kindly donated by Azapi IT Services. We cannot begin to thank Jacobus, Gerrit and the team at Azapi for creating such a wonderful site for us.

The launch of the website coincides with the official registration of the songo.info trust (IT 1515/2011) and the launch of our new office in Kayamandi. We are now officially an independent organisation that is supported by SDK Accounting Firm who oversee our financial management and Bowman Gilfillan who provide all our legal services. Both organisations provide their services pro bona. We are so grateful for their incredible support.

songo.info has come a long way since the beginning of the year including establishing our landmark 3 year partnership with 36ONE Asset Management. 36ONE Asset Management came on board in March as the sponsors of the songo.info team of Christoph Sauser and Burry Stander for the Absa Cape Epic, and several other races. We had a great start to the year with Christoph and Burry winning the Absa Cape Epic, and have been exceptionally proud of all the accomplishments following this including Christoph’s win of the World Marathon Championship title.

In addition to 36ONE Asset Management, we have forged wonderful relationships with many people and organisations and are really grateful for all the support of our new partners including Aurecon and Rehidrat.

We have great plans to grow songo.info including focusing on building our BMX and Mountain Biking programs. The children have already participated in a number of events this year including joBerg2C, Sani2C, Spur mountain biking events, Grape Escape, Absa Cape Epic, Die Burger, to name a few!

Our dream is to acquire a vehicle to transport the children to events and training programs and to alleviate the heavy cost of using taxi’s. We are also looking to develop a clubhouse for the songo.info program utilising a building structure that is on the land we lease, next to the BMX track. This will enable us to really provide so much more to the children including afterschool facilities to support their school work.

We are so grateful to everyone who helps out and is a part of the songo.info program, thank you so much for all your support. We look forward to sharing our continual growth on our new website.
