The Grow Great Campaign launched on the 17th of October 2018. The event was attended by the First Lady Dr Tshepo Motsepe who also gave a keynote speech.
Speaking at the event Dr Motsepe said “This is a campaign that must take place in all sectors of our society in all corners of our country. It requires participation of South Africans who live in abundance and those who live in need. It embraces all South Africans — black and white, urban, rural and females and males.”
The event was attended by government officials, business representatives, funders, activists, media personalities and members of the media.
Guests were treated to a very informative panel discussion featuring some of South Africa’s leading experts on stunting. The executive director of Grow Great Dr Kopano Matlwa Mabaso then took the guests through the Grow Great strategy. The evening was ended with emotional stories from the field as Flourish franchisees and Champions for Children shared their experiences.
