“It’s nice when people love you….for you”

We are We

a candid and trailblazing term

Our founder’s then 4-year old daughter conceived a candid and trailblazing term, ‘We are We’, when explaining that instead of bullying one another, we should all accept each other as we are.
‘We are We’ implies that we are all ‘who we are’ and should be acknowledged as such.
This innocent understanding of acceptance is so powerful as it reveals the naked truth of our nation’s tainted past and the exact mindset required to overcome the shadows of the apartheid era.


The ‘We are We’ Initiative aims to foster acceptance, through educating individuals at different levels of society. In such a multi-cultural society and in light of our nation’s segregated history, there is a momentous need to encourage acceptance of others and strive for unity.

The program aims to achieve its objectives through informative workshops and talks for parents, children and adolescents.


One of the pillars of our initiative is to raise money for the Children’s Hospital Trust. 

“The Children’s Hospital Trust is an independent non-profit organization established in 1994 to raise funds to support specific projects and programmes to help advance child healthcare through the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital – the first stand-alone tertiary hospital, exclusively for children, in sub-Saharan Africa. The Trust raises funds for the upgrade and expansion of the Hospital’s buildings, the purchase of state-of-the-art medical equipment, new medical treatment programmes and funds the training of medical professionals across Africa – ensuring that the Hospital not only retains its world-class stature, but is able to continue providing life-changing and life-saving care for children.”

We raise funds through various avenues. Donations are made through events such as the “Portuguese Evening” held annually by Round Table… and participation by “Team Just Breathe” in events such as the Wild Coast Challenge. 

We are constantly seeking new avenues and ideas to raise funds for the Children’s Hospital Trust and appreciate any and all support.
