For one of us, “Dreams of the Doers” was about getting his family to Cape Town.
Mpho Ndimande has been participating in the Dreams of the Doers initiative at Netsurit for the past four years. One of Mpho’s dreams was to go to Cape Town. He’d wanted to visit for many years, but every time an opportunity presented itself, he would either make excuses or something would prevent him from going. In 2018, he resolved to use the Dreams of the Doers programme to make it the year he went to Cape Town.
“I forced myself to take methodical steps towards this goal, to spend money on tickets, places to stay and places to visit, that way I knew that there was no going back,” he adds. “Knowing that the money was spent meant that I had to plan everything, I no longer had a choice.”
In December 2018, Mpho went to Cape Town for seven days with his family and had an incredible experience. One that he describes as one of the best achievements in his life. He even completed another challenge while he was in the Mother City… “One of the guys in my team dared me to climb Lion’s Head and I thought I could do it, easy,” he concludes. “I regretted it within two minutes. It was so steep! But I was determined to do it and I did.
Dreams of the Doers helped me recognise that I can do things I had never done before and it has translated into other parts of my life.”
