Which Cause achievement are you most proud of? Feel free to elaborate on why and include any links:

In 2016, before the organisation was formally registered we hosted the National Schools Debating Championship in Phalaborwa together with the South African Schools Debating Board and the Friedrich Naumann Foundation. At the time, it was the largest national schools tournament to have taken place in the country. (
In 2019, the first debating under our management was founded in Mokopane. Although this was the 2nd schools league to be founded by our team, it is the first under our logo and we hope to replicate what we learned to other parts of the province with time.
