We’re excited to present Badisa Trio’s Annual Report for the year 2022/2023.
Inside, you’ll find a snapshot of our year – the highlights, our service statistics, and the financial figures. But this report is more than just data, it’s a colorful mosaic of the stories of hope we’ve woven together.
At Badisa Trio, we work hand in hand, as a team and with our community, to change the lives of children. We were the beacon of hope for over 8,885 in the past year.
Message from the chairperson of the Governing Board of Badisa Trio
“This is a privilege to deliver this year’s opening message on behalf of the Governing Body of Badisa Trio.
We serve the entire Bellville, Durbanville, Brackenfell, Kraaifontein, and Scottsdene areas with our offices situated in Bellville, Kraaifontein and Scottsdene. We are experiencing an increase in the population in this region and an increase in cases where children were involved. This is and will be of great concern to us. We actually need more personnel to handle this increase in cases. Staff turnover however remains a challenge.
Our finances also remain a problem. For the 2022/2023 financial year, we received only 77% of our expenses from the Department of Social Development. We therefore had to get donations for the shortage in income. I am glad to say that we received more than R 1,1 million in donations for 2022/2023.
The buildings in which our offices are situated belong to GHBM and the Dutch Reform Church. These buildings however are old and need to maintain on a yearly basis. I am glad to say that most of our electronic equipment is in good condition.
I conclude this message by saying thank you to the following:
• Our Lord Jesus Christ. Without Him, no program will ever succeed.
• To all our staff members for their work and dedication sometimes under difficult conditions.
• To my fellow board members. Without you, I would not have survived.
• To all our volunteers. Thank you for your unselfish contribution to Badisa Trio.
• To all our donors. Without your continuous support (financially and other)we would not be able to render quality services to children and families in need.
• To Karen and Annie for their support to our staff.”
