Despite the regular staff and funding challenges, their projects deliver excellent services to the children in safe environment, including 2 meals a day and educational stimulation. Forty-three staff members render services to 350 children, excluding youth in support groups and children who receive services during home visits.
APPSolve has proudly been involved with Ditshego the past few years providing them will various IT services. Maureen Grosvenor, director at APPSolve elaborates, “Our first goal in 2017 was to increase our support by commissioning a project to launch Ditshego’s first independent domain and web page ( https://www.ditshego.org/ ). It has allowed for approved content and accurate information about past and future events and financial initiatives to reach the relevant donors quicker and in a more professional, unified way. Secondly, we have setup Ditshego’s first Cloud based document storage and information sharing platform. The solution is scalable and will allow us to build extended services to suit their growth strategy for the future.”
“Ditshego has an extremely dedicated group of people who make many personal sacrifices and work long hours every day to enhance the lives of young children. We have an immense amount of respect and appreciation for these unsung South African heroes and will continue to do our utmost to support them wherever we can” explains APPSolve’s managing director Hein Blignaut.
