Inyathelo – The South African Institute for Advancement’s philanthropy programme manager, Gillian Mitchell, says that the Inyathelo Philanthropy Awards give South Africans the chance to thank those people who have and are making a difference.
Mitchell was speaking at the occasion of the 2009 awards in Cape Town. Since its inception three years ago, the Inyathelo Awards have recognised those whose personal contributions have made a sustainable contribution to the communities in which they are active.
