Rob Hamblett Visit: Both inspired and inspiring

We recently had an unexpected visit from a gentleman by the name of Rob Hamblett, who hails all the way from Bristol in the UK.

Rob was brought to TEEC by a mutual connection in the form of Katherine Lai who is a big supporter of what we are doing here at the centre.

Upon visiting us and learning the value of Ubuntu and how a community raises a child, Rob was so taken aback and impressed that he dedicated a short post to us on LinkedIn. He explains how he came to know of us, what he learned when he got here and how we came into being.

An excerpt from his post:

We were struck by the power of human connection. Ubuntu teaches that we all make a difference in shaping a brighter future for each other. As Margaret Mead famously said, which you’ll find in Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens – “never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

It was a pleasure to meet Rob and we welcome him and anyone else who would like to see what we do to come and see first hand by visiting us at TEEC.
