14 May Welcome Our New CEO
It is a pleasure to announce that Mr. James Donald has joined Tomorrow Trust on March 2018, as the new CEO.
James has 15 years leadership experience within the NGO space and a particular passion for youth development and employability. 2012 to 2016, James was the Managing Director for an award-winning South African adolescent health NGO, Grassroot Soccer, before returning to studies at Harvard University. He has a BA Psychology degree from the University of the Witwatersrand and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Harvard University.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to James, we look forward to a long and happy journey with him!
In James’ Words: I have been moved by how hard Tomorrow Trust staff, teachers, beneficiaries, volunteers and partners work. I cannot help you all regain your sleep but I can offer some perspective, specifically on why all your hard work is paying off.
I joined Tomorrow Trust because I strongly believe the future of our country and continent rests on how well we can ensure that all our young people get the experiences and support they need to thrive as adults. Tomorrow Trust works because we identify the young people of highest need and potential, stitch together the financial and social support they need and help them find opportunities to learn.
Our challenge is to continue to do this better, and for more people, and to share what we learn with a sector facing significant change and challenges. Thank you again for supporting us on this journey.
