Special Announcement

As we head towards concluding 2023, the Spirit Foundation is proud of its continued delivery of real impact in education, community, and wildlife. As we grow as an organisation, so too does our leadership. So, it gives me great pleasure to announce the promotion of Saskia Wiese to General Manager of the Spirit Education Foundation. Saskia is a dedicated leader and has been leading the implementation of our scholar programme for the past three years. As Saskia steps into her fifth year of service to SEF, we celebrate her promotion effective 1 January 2024. Her pedigree within the educational sector is well established having previously worked at the Western Cape Education Department for seven years.

As Saskia takes on this position, Courtney Kalis will take over the role of Scholarship Programme Coordinator and Nzele Omari will assist her in the implementation of our programmes. I wish Courtney well as she takes on this lead programme facilitator role from 1 January 2024 ensuring our programme continues to meet our high standards and look forward to her future innovative enhancements.
Please join us in congratulating Saskia and Courtney and we look forward to their continued dedication, service, and leadership within the Spirit family.

In closing, I wish you and your loved ones a blessed festive season!

Dr. Armand Bam
Managing Director
