Tummies, Minds, & Spirits will holistically transform lives by providing learners with the necessary psycho-social skills to achieve their absolute best.

The goal is to create and help implement a comprehensive reproducible model that communities can use to break the cycles of poverty.

Tummies, Minds and Spirits was introduced to the work of Community Cohesion while on an educational trip to Cape Town in 2011.  Both NGO’s have collaborated and shared their vision to come up with the Hangberg Project. There was an immediate connection between Rochelle and Bronwyn and they decided to explore their common desire for social change.

The Hangberg project is the result of this desire. It has been strategically chosen out of all the work that both NGO’s do as it is a manageable test site, it has measurables in place, and most importantly, the community of Hangberg are ready and willing partners.

Both of our groups realize that this is a work in progress and that what appears perfect in theory can fall apart in practice. The only guarantee we can give is that we are committed to the success of the project. We have the right teams in place, in the United States and in South Africa. We are not the owners of this change, but the custodians and drivers of it, and are willing to work with whatever other partners might come along; we are open to what they can bring on board as long as they share our vision and commitment.

The Hangberg Project is the start. We roll out from here.

We are a collective of like-minded people with the same objectives: working towards alleviating poverty through education.

We apply the Business for Development Model (B4D) ensuring that we are sustainable and are able to fund NGO’s around the world.

We have partnered with a variety of trail-blazers and willingly utilize their experience to realize our vision.

We have created a viable and creditable platform for others to be part of the solution.

We are enabling people to be the change they want to see in the world.
