Fundraising Gala Dinner: 3 November 2017 – Protea Hotel Fire & Ice: Menlyn

Honourable Adv Tshililo Michael Masutha (MP), Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, is co-hosting a fundraising gala dinner in partnership with the South African National Council for the Blind, in recognition of the contribution of the blind and partially sighted towards South Africa’s social justice, transformation and development agenda.

The gala dinner aims to raise funds to assist all the 22 special public schools for the blind in South Africa (list is attached) with adaptive and assistive learning devices, library resources and other amenities. These resources are desperately needed by learners in these schools, given that their plight for a conducive learning environment is still largely unattended and/or insufficiently catered for in the mainstream public education system. The fundraising gala dinner arises out of an ongoing public private partnership between the Ministry of Justice and Correctional Services, the Ministry of Arts and Culture, various provincial government departments in Limpopo province, Ditholwana Tsa Rena Community Development Trust (Anglo American PLC), the South African Library for the Blind, Polokwane Municipality, Siloe School for the Blind and other partners towards a fully equipped and technologically responsive library for the blind at Siloe School for the Blind, Thokgoaneng village, outside Polokwane in Limpopo province.

Just over R1.8 million was raised for this single project and the experience thereof is valuable in encouraging the Ministry of Justice and Correctional Services and the South African National Council for the Blind to extend the initiative beyond Siloe School for the Blind. Minister Masutha is himself an alumni of the school, having completed both his primary/basic education and secondary schooling at Siloe School for the Blind between 1972 and 1984.

Minister Masutha went on to obtain a B Juris degree from the University of the North (now University of Limpopo) in 1988 as well as an LLB degree from the University of the Witwatersrand in 1989 despite his visual impairment. The gala dinner will be an annual event hosted in October, Eye Care Awareness month.

The event will formally recognize and celebrate the contribution of the blind and partially sighted in South Africa. In addition, the role of blind individuals who made strides in different sporting, professional and academic fields needs to be amplified to encourage young blind and partially sighted learners as well as other blind people who continue to struggle to adjust and cope in a world where social conditions continue to impose unreasonable barriers and impediments to wellbeing and success. Best performing matriculants and university students will also be recognized and awarded for their excellence in the near future.

The date for the inaugural gala dinner is set for the 3rd of November 2017 at the Fire and Ice Protea Hotel, Tshwane (Pretoria). It is kindly requested that companies willing to donate and attend the event notify the organisers before the 30th of September 2017. Companies purchasing a table or seats are encouraged to include blind and partially sighted employees and stakeholders in their delegation.

Standard corporate tables of 10 people each will be selling at R100 000 (10 000 per person) and will include a three course meal, a soft drink and water for each guest. A cash bar will also be available.

Companies and individuals not in a position to attend can still make a separate pledge or donation into the following account:
