Go for Gold has the immense pleasure of having an amazing international supporter, Mr Wolfgang Handt from Rotary Nuremberg-Reichswald. He was instrumental in the creation of a German bank account for donations for Go for Gold ensuring German donors’ contributions received tax benefits.
Mr Handt has always successfully initiated grants in support of Go for Gold over the years and 2021 was no different. His latest grant, the District Grant was even more impressive because he successfully rallied the support of numerous German Rotary Clubs, each contributing to the successful grant amount of €16 000 (R273 898.40).
The funding was ringfenced toward Entrepreneurial training for Phase 3 and 4 students. Go for Gold utilized the services of an entrepreneurial training provider called Over the Rainbow. Twenty Go for Gold Phase 3 students, currently finishing their tertiary studies attended the course from 27 to 29 October 2021 at a venue in Cape Town.
