Dare to Dream, Dare to Fly (Part ll)
First we thank God for this inspired fundraising dinner. We also thank you so much for all the contributions that was made to ensure this was an memorable occasion. The evening certainly was a lot of fun and what’s more, we have met much of what the AOS team had set out to achieve. That was to bring about awareness of our forthcoming mission to Malawi and raising much needed funds towards the various projects being undertaken. More details of this will follow in due course. A big well done to the organisers and all those who had participated. This could not have happened in the way it had if it were not for all your generous support. Finally, a big thank you to all our sponsors, business donations and supporters. Now enjoy some of the highlights of the summer evening and don’t forget to join us next year at our next event, Dare to Dream, Dare to Fly on the 25th April 2015.
Thank you to our main sponsor, Ethiopian Airlines

What a brilliant performance by our adorable Siphiwe, who gave us a rendition of a well know gospel song after citing eloquently Still I Rise to everyone’s amazement.
