SASATA Congress 2022: Keynote Speaker
Dr Imtiaz Sooliman
Since its inception in 1992, Gift of the Givers foundation has been responsible for providing life-saving goods and on-the-ground support (collectively valued at R2.3 billion) to people in more than 43 countries across the world, including South Africa.

The foundation is the largest non-governmental disaster response organisation of African origin on the African continent. It unites people with a common vision to make a real and telling difference for the “Greater Good”.

It was indeed a pleasure and honour to host the founder of the Gift of the Givers, Dr Imtiaz Sooliman as keynote speaker at Congress this year. In an inspiring talk entitled, ‘Active Citizenry, the Door to South Africa’s Success’, Dr Sooliman described how ordinary citizens have the power to transform societies across the world. With selfless effort, South Africans have the power to transform our country into a nation we can all be proud of, and which will serve as a beacon of light to the rest of the world.

With his kind permission, the full talk is available here. We hope you will be inspired to participate selflessly when solving problems for the greater good of all.
