Future Angels Creche receives newly tiled classroom from EON, CTM and Hot 919 FM

How Exciting is this!!

The Event Organiser's Network is exceptionally proud to announce that together with Hot 91.9FM and CTM, Southgate, we will be doing a live broadcast handover of the newly tiled classroom at Future Angels Creche on Tuesday morning, 23 June, between 07h30 and 08h30. Tune in to Hot 91.9FM. If you are not in their broadcast area, you can live stream.

Future Angels Creche was adopted by the Event Organiser's Network about 18 months ago after doing a clients' site inspection at Soweto Hotel and a walk through the extremely impoverished area of Kliptown, Soweto. The exceptional lady, Mom Dolly, who runs the creche saw a need to take children off the street and is not yet fully compliant to receive a grant and continues to provide what she can from what the parents can give her together with donations and assistance.

This is one of the reasons EON does as much as we can for them and ask for donations, from time to time, of anything you can spare, educational aids, clothes, bedding etc. We also give them a Christmas party every year.
One of the things that is required to comply is to have the floors properly tiled. We have now achieved that for them but there is still a long way to go. They need the ceiling fixed and they need to build three child friendly toilets, etc, etc. Any assistance will be gratefully accepted.

If there is anything you or possibly your company could do to assist please call/email Nadine at EON, 011 781 4800, nadine[at]

Don't forget to listen in on 23 June between 07h30 and 08h30

A quick update on this years Johannesburg Showcase. EON Showcase Johannesburg 2015 will take place in the 1st or second week of August 2015.

Xmas party and graduation for our adopted Kliptown Creche

What a great feeling to be able to host our adopted creche, Future Angels' graduation ceremony and Xmas party.

This year, The Soweto Hotel joined us as venue sponsors and for the first time 36 preschoolers had their party and graduation at a 'Big" Hotel.

With big eyes and some apprehension, they all arrived walking in single file from their school about 500m away across the railway track.

This year, 5 preschoolers graduated. They received their graduation certificates proudly dressed in black tie, graduation frocks and caps. Really, Big little people.

We love being an ongoing part of the development of the Future Angles Creche.

Thanks to Mom Dolly, originator of the school and tireless teacher to all.

Thanks to The Soweto Hotel and of course to the team at EON.

It's been a year since we adopted the makeshift Future Angels
Creche in Kliptown.

Mom Dolly, initiator of the school and tireless teacher started the school in an empty room on her property in Kliptown, Soweto to cater for those little children who were left on the streets by moms who had to go to work.

Mom Dolly takes care of 36 preschoolers ranging in age from as young as 12 months to 6 years old, teaching them counting and alphabet through song and dance.

It is amazing and quite touching to see how so much can be achieved by so
little and how enthusiastic the little ones are.

EON has worked throughout the year to provide assistance where the school needed it.

We would like to thank those EON members and others who have made generous donations of food equipment, educational toys and more.
