FOREWORD by Karina Andersen, Founder

I am humbled by a year of incredible growth.

We have opened so many new and exciting doors and partnered with like-minded souls who deeply connect to our passion and our purpose. These partnerships have allowed us to extend ourselves even further and gift especially South African youth-at-risk with our enabling platform, a TRI toolkit and our SmilingOne Change Agents!

2018/19 has allowed for years of deeply focused Change Agent work to move to the next level! I love how the journey guides us. It keeps revealing the steps to take. At times we are called to pause and at other times we are called to stretch. It has been a year of huge stretch. It continues to ask for more and that we bow to the process. Only when we bow can we open our hearts and minds to purify our intent. We are here to SERVE a much greater purpose than ourselves. We want to cause ripples of change which will echo in the hearts and minds of those we touch. We want to leave a lasting footprint and be woven into the tapestry of lives transformed forever. Just like nature every single process is connected. WE are all connected! There is a greater rhythm to honour - a grand symphony. My task is to keep us honest and aligned to this wonderful balance which begins with how we as a SmilingOne Team live and practice our own consciousness toolkit, grounding ourselves firmly, moving from our deepest essence.

I am thrilled to share our annual report with you and invite you to celebrate with us the wonderful progress…

In Gratitude, Karina - SmilingOne Founder

  6. 6. CHANGE AGENTS in the making in SA Prisons We identify THE POTENTIAL We activate it in  CIRCLES OF CHANGE™ (COC) We educate it on the platform of THE RESPONSIBLE INDIVIDUAL™ (TRI) THE POTENTIAL shapes into  CHANGE AGENTS We have since 2008 brought The Responsible Individual™ (TRI) and our Circles of Change™ (COC) Education into South African Correctional Centres - the first seed was planted by our Founder Karina Andersen in Brandvlei Maximum. One of our great strengths is our highly unique team of Responsibility Coaches and Changes Agents. Each one of them we have met behind bars; to each one we have extended an invite to change and to actively participate in the journey of becoming a responsible individual, to co-create a profound and life altering experience. Today they carry the seed with them into projects in schools and their communities. We are highlighting some of these inspiring projects in this report. We continue to extend invites and invest in educating Change Agents in our Correctional Centres. We have learnt to not underestimate the significance of touching lives - even if it is just for a moment. There is an incarcerated population of more than 160,000 men. Let’s utilise the potential! 2018/19 Activity: Malmesbury Medium & Pollsmoor Medium A 2019/20 Activity: We continue to nurture our partnership with the Department of Correctional Services and educate Change Agents in SA correctional centres. We re-commit to our focus on sentenced offenders who have the gift of time to attend their TRI & COC studies. We partner with minimum two correctional centres every year.

BOTH ADDED TREMENDOUS VALUE TO OUR PROJECTS. THEY LIVE DEEPLY INTO BEING THE CHANGE THEY WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD. THANDO GWAMPI AND THULANI SIQWANA - SOULFUL AND GENTLE GIANTS - DEEPLY CONNECTED TO THEIR SMILING ONE FAMILY. THULANI JOINED US FULL-TIME BEGINNING OF 2019 AFTER REINTEGRATING OCT 2018. HE WORKS CLOSELY WITH CHANGE AGENT BRADLY HESS IN OUR RAVENSMEAD HIGH SCHOOL PROJECT.
  9. 9. CHANGE AGENTS Parolee Support | Bradly Hess Bradly Hess reintegrated June 2019 after nine years of COC Educational Training with SmilingOne inside SA prison. He shares of his reintegration process: “I have never felt so blessed, honoured and scared at the same time for coming back to my community. I didn’t know what to expect but I had prepared my heart, my mind and my emotions for what I thought was ahead of me. I have four family members who love me dearly and then I have the SmilingOne Family who has been of great support for nine years inside prison and since day one outside of the prison. I have a great purpose to live! Every day when I wake up, I still have challenges. When I move into my projects I feel and hear how others are also facing difficult life challenges, even more challenging than me. These projects allow me to deeply value the people I meet as well as the role I play in their lives. I have recently lost my Granny and three weeks ago I lost my Father, whom I have never gotten to know and never asked the questions that I kept in my heart. So many feelings and thoughts unanswered - at times I felt like giving up. Then I look at myself and life around me and ask myself the question: “Who is responsible for your happiness, your state of being, your potential, Bradly?” I remind myself that no one in this world is responsible - it is up to me. I am a life-long student. I am willing to learn. I look at my life and I am thankful for this opportunity, where I rise to observe and appreciate the value this life brings. My re-integration is my inspiration and my tool to avail myself to the purpose of making a change. I have felt inspired to plow back into our Correctional Centres, as I can relate to their heartfelt challenges and circumstances. I have learned more about myself, my values and the weaknesses I never wanted to work on. I have found ways to deal with my anger, lack of motivation and self-confidence. I have taken responsibility for my thoughts, my past and my present situation. In my processes in Pollsmoor and Malmesbury Correctional Centres I work with inmates who also want to change for the better, but don’t know how. With my TRI and COC Educational toolkit I can be a resource of inspiration to them. The SmilingOne family never gave up on me and I am following in their footsteps, making sure that I also plant seeds of change. It is a very valuable task as you assist shaping these individuals to become Responsible Individuals and get a new lease on life. It is a great reminder of where I come from; it is teaching me to value my freedom, value myself and value the world around me. It takes great courage to walk this journey with others, but I will never forget. It was because of others who cared, supported and believed in me that I am a Change Agent today.”
  10. 10. RAVENSMEAD PROJECT Secondary High School By Change Agent Bradly Hess BACKGROUND: Bradly visited Ravensmead High School one month after his reintegration in July 2018. He chose this school as his COC caring project and offered his time voluntary at the school, exposing them to The Responsible Individual™ opportunity. Kirsh Family Foundation granted us in the beginning of 2019 a 3-year sponsorship for this project with Bradly as the project lead. The project is a twin project to our Michausdal Secondary School Project in Cradock, sponsored by the DG Murray Trust. The objectives were workshopped in collaboration with DGMT leading up to the official Cradock Project start Dec 2018 and adopted as a model in the Ravensmead School Project which launched March 2019 (new financial year). “As a SmilingOne Change Agent I decided to venture into this project because I can personally relate to many of the students challenges and the circumstances they grow up in. I feel blessed to be a part of such a great project. It is challenging but I am learning every step of the way. During the year 2018 I went to Ravensmead High School several times a week to give them a taste of what SmilingOne can do for them and the benefits of The Responsible Individual™ (TRI) and our Circles of Change™ (COC) educational platform. We quickly noticed that our presence at the school was openly received. Both students as well as teachers welcomed our platform of sharing at the school. We also observed the challenges the teachers experienced and how these impacted them in doing their best. Our communities are really suffering and trying their best to stay head above waters in our crime ridden society and because of that our kids loose their sense of hope, faith and trust in themselves and others. Our main objective at the school is to unlock the students hidden potential and help them discover that they have a champion within and can champion change in their lives. It is not an easy task and requires a united front. We aim to build a great unity, a strong and inspiring Partnership amongst students, parents and teachers. This is the true essence of being part of something bigger. The more we can stand and work together and share and give of our energy into this process, the more everyone can become and the greater is the difference that can be made. The interactive space with the students has been an important steppingstone for both us as SmilingOne Change Agents and the teachers. From July 2018 until today (May 2019) I have experienced that it is only through working in partnership that we can reach the hearts and shape the values and vision of students and divert them from crime, drugs, gangsterism and all other destructive things that can imprison their mindsets and their beautiful potential.”

  12. 12. OUR SPONSORS We are deeply humbled by the trust our Sponsors have shown in us and our vision. It is a gesture we really want to live up to and show ourselves worthy of through consistent delivery into our projects and by showcasing progress. WHO ARE OUR SPONSORS LRMG wants to positively shape the future of people and organisations across Africa. As an African company, they want to uplift people, grow organisations and be the catalyst for progress on our continent. They believe that begins with empowering individuals to build productive teams, profitable companies and thriving economies. (from www.lrmg.co.za/about) LRMG has supported SmilingOne and its Founder Karina Andersen since 2012 in various ways. Coaching contracts has allowed the SME business SmilingOne PTY Ltd to donate funding to its NPO The SmilingOne Foundation and educate Change Agents. LRMG Digital Campus has sponsored two SmilingOne Change Agents to attend the Principles of Project Management Course. LRMG Digital has in 2018/19 sponsored our Champion of Change APP (in progress). LRMG include our Change Agents in their VM events. The goal of DGMT is for South Africa to be a FLYING NATION with a flourishing people, economy and society. The core of DGMT’s work is human development. “We come from a past where the potential of the majority has been ignored. The effects of that past continue to exclude people and choke innovation. We also have not made the most of the opportunities that democracy has brought with it. Our nation won’t get off the ground if most people are left behind. We must now harness our entire talent pool for a more innovative and inclusive society.” (from www.dgmt.co.za/our-strategy) DGMT sponsored The SmilingOne Foundation in 2017/18 and again in 2018/19 which has allowed for our Cradock School Project with Project Lead Change Agent Franklin Esau to get a flying start. DGMT is a very involved sponsor. Our collaboration continue to build and stretch our team into a clear and focused strategy. KIRSH Family Foundation is our most recent sponsor coming on board granting us a 3-year sponsorship of the Ravensmead School Process with Project Lead Change Agent Bradly Hess. This sponsorship commenced March 2019 (new financial year). We look forward to share more about this amazing partnership in our annual report next year. Until then the project can be followed via LIVE updates on our Facebook Page. KIRSH FAMILY FOUNDATION
  13. 13. CRADOCK PROJECT Michausdal Secondary High School 5 Key Objectives | Testimony Principal’s testimony – Mr. Rudi Van Rooyen: 
 “I have noticed that most of the students in Franklin’s [SmilingOne] programme are learners at risk of dropping out, students who are and was pregnant and students with behavioral problems.” He continues: “There was one learner, at risk of dropping out, the learner’s behaviour was uncontrollable. The learner had no ambition, he was disrespectful towards teachers (teachers were very scared of him), students and people in his nearest environment. I was amazed how Franklin made a breakthrough with this student. No teacher nor I could do it. The student was referred to Mr. Esau who deeply looked into this matter. We afterwards learned that the boy had deep pain involving confidential issues in his life (Franklin never shared the confidentiality issues with us). I don’t know what tools Franklin used, but I was amazed by the change in this young boy’s life.” 
 5 KEY OBJECTIVES 1. Tackle learner disengagement by establishing a nurturing and relatable adult in a school to facilitate intensive personal development with learners. 2. Improve school culture through light-touch open dialogues with learners. 3. Support family relationships of learners who show a high risk of dropping out. 4. Change Agents and Coaches orientated to work with children/ learners. (Handbook in progress) 5. Diversify funding for the project moving forward 

  14. 14. CRADOCK PROJECT Michausdal Secondary High School By Change Agent Franklin Esau CIRCLES OF CHANGE™ – A PLATFORM OF SHARING In March 2018 we slowly started to expose 400 Students at the Michausdal Senior Secondary School to The Responsible Individual™ (TRI) - our personal values-based leadership program. Our aim then was to start a pilot program and collect data to better understand the shape our program could take when bringing our approach on a full time basis to Cradock, Eastern Cape in collaboration with a sponsor such as DGMT. Today we have almost 530 Students being impacted by the Cradock, Michausdal School Project. It has been a valuable lesson in so many ways. We are grateful to the Michausdal community and the School for accepting our program and understanding the part we as SmilingOne can play in their Students unlocking their potential and becoming future leaders. It has been evident from our interactions at the school that they are grateful and appreciative towards the program – they have had an opportunity to discover the sacred space of Sharing. Some of the Students have shared that they do not feel loved and others that there is no trust in their lives. This has kept them away from seeking advice, from learning about themselves and being more pro-active in working towards their dreams and goals. I understand. It also stopped me from listening to my parents and listening to the advice of the elderly people in my life, who understood the Challenges of being a Teenager. I have experienced in my own journey as a Change Agent how I have been distant from people – how I have not accepted responsibility and blamed others for my failures and mistakes as a Teenager. When the truth was that I should have invited support, advice and guidance in my life as a Youth – in order to become better equipped to deal with my Challenges at that time. Today as a Change Agent I sense them deeply, I can relate to all the Students in the Project. They give me an opportunity to walk with them. They trust me to share in their Challenges. They invite me into their hearts and minds to Care. The Students were happy that a SmilingOne Change Agent finally came along to listen to what they had to say!
  15. 15. CRADOCK PROJECT Michausdal Secondary High School Testimonies Ms Van Sasie – English and Life Orientation Teacher How did you think The Responsible Individual (TRI) classes have impacted your Students: -Last quarter I saw changes in a few Students in Grade 9. The girl Evandre was showing great changes – she is more outspoken. This quarter I have seen the Students become more eager and interactive -I have also seen changes in the grade 8’s. I left them to see if they were going to make a noise or do their work. I came back and they actually did my work.  It was very surprising – they actually listen now. Would you say that TRI classes assists Teachers to have better Students? Yes, I think that if you concentrate and listen to the Teacher you can achieve many things and I think that through TRI classes the Students learn to concentrate, interact and listen to the Teacher. When you are being responsible it means you have to do your homework. In TRI they get taught that and it is not something that we as Teachers can Teach. What would you say is the best moment you have experienced in TRI classes for the Students? - For me it was their curiosity.  They are curious to see what they will learn today because TRI is not a set structure. They are always curious to see are we going to talk about drugs today or about our family. They participate very freely for it is not like Maths, they can speak from their own personal knowledge. 
 Would you recommend TRI classes to all the Students at school? - I would, so that the learners can carry themselves more respectfully, take out their books and write something down. - Not many Students care about life orientation and they do not think you can do something with it. With the TRI inspiration they always write something and are more responsible. 
 - Ms Hailey Jacobus – Creative Arts and Life Orientation Teacher to Grade 8’s
 
 How did you think The Responsible Individual (TRI) classes have impacted your Students: -The second quarter I started to see changes. They have been more excited about the classes.  -When it comes to my class they are totally different students than what they are in TRI classes. I think it is the topics that you cover. We do not speak about that stuff usually (about the responsible individual, alcohol abuse, their behaviour, all that stuff. I strictly stick to the syllabus so I do not touch subjects of the TRI). What you speak about is what is happening to them on a daily bases. I see they enjoy it very much. -Previously I would rarely see a change of attitude in my Creative Arts or Life Orientation classes . I would see no interest from them. However now I do see how they have changed - I see more respect and comprehension. -Most of the Learners were shy but since the TRI classes started I have seen them open up. -Now they are more confident. I do not have to drag it out of them. Are there specific Students that you have seen the changes in: - I have this one class where most of the boys were up and down, now they are more relaxed. - There was this one boy who was very naughty – now he is the one talking to the guys and asking them to be quiet and do their work first before we discuss our things. Everyone used to laugh at his jokes now when he is quiet the rest is quiet - now he is the responsible one in the class. Would you recommend TRI classes to all of the other classes: Definitely, because of the changes I see. Even if it would be just one person that can change it is more than enough. That one person influence the rest! I recommend TRI to the whole school – especially for the grade 11 & 12. They are going to the next level of their life.
  16. 16. CHAMPION OF CHANGE OUR APP PROJECT | SPONSOR LRMG Imagine a new world opening up - the world of TRI - offering our challenged and high-risk youth - South African Students - a much needed inner educational pathway supported by our SmilingOne Change Agents and our aspiring Champions of Change. This is a space where we speak about the things - CHALLENGES - that are rarely addressed in school. This is a space where it is okay to express how we feel and where our emotions are addressed in new and profound ways. Most of our youth do not feel heard or understood. Most of our youth do not have the tools nor the skills to deal with the challenges that they face on a daily basis at school, at home and in their communities. Hand in hand with the students in our active school and community projects as well as the LRMG Digital Team we are shaping a truly remarkable digital experience. Soon to be launched (mid 2019). I. Karina approached Anton Cabral from LRMG Digital mid 2018 with her idea of creating an APP for the SmilingOne Foundation School process. II. Anton was excited and agreed to sponsor first phase of the three development phases: The TRI Exposure Phase. III. We got together with Anton and his team to story board the first phase and start with the APP Look n Feel. IV. We spend several months creating the Learner Path aligned to the first two chapters of The Responsible Individual™ Book - now coming alive with video’s and audio’s to expand on the experience. V. In weekly check-in meeting with Anton’s team the APP has been unfolding.
  17. 17. CHAMPION OF CHANGE OUR APP PROJECT | SPONSOR LRMG We would love to invite more sponsors to come on board so that we can fully activate our Champion of Change APP Experience. This is our Wish List: (1) Zero Rating of the APP which will allow all learners to access the APP free of charge (2) Rewards Partners who can donate school items such as uniforms, school bags, stationery, school fees etc. which can be earned / awarded when learning steps have been completed on the Learner Path of the APP - extrinsic reward system (3) sponsorships for the second and third development phase of the APP - TRI Resident & TRI World (4) Animation Partners to lift some of the TRI concepts into animated story telling (5) A Lawyer who can assist us with the Disclaimer & Copyright texts on the APP
  18. 18. LRMG provided us with truly amazing learning opportunity through two inspiring ‘Voice Matters’ Conferences. Thank you for including ourTeam! Our Change Agents continuously work on equipping their toolkits

  20. 20. FINANCIAL REPORT By Karina Andersen
 Founder & Chair Person Our SmilingOne Foundation can make a significant contribution in South Africa! We have always known this to be true and have showcased this through our specialised activities the past eleven years where incredible change has been evident in the lives we have touched. We wanted to do more and stretch ourselves into more areas that matter to us as SmilingOne and to us all as a nation. Crime Diversion and Prevention, and Social Cohesion matters! Providing our Youth, our Learners in our Schools with an enabling platform, guidance and support from a Change Agent and a values-based leadership toolkit matters! The past year has been a turning point for our foundation in this regard as we have attracted some truly special sponsorships allowing us this stretch. It is amazing that we can leverage eleven years of Change Agent work and channel a highly unique and dynamic team into two school processes. Our team knows what it means to take the lead on their journeys and become conscious Community Enablers and Change Agents. We have a team that has diverted from a path of crime, that deeply relates to the challenges of today’s Learners and is an example of having leveraged change in their own lives. This was one of the key factors in DG Murray Trust coming onboard and granting us a sponsorship of R245,500. Our team is now supported on the path of inspiring youth to take charge of their lives, to champion their change and awaken the leader within. The individual who becomes a Change Agent is of a very special calibre with tools and skills to inspire change in the environments they lead in. We have immense gratitude to our sponsors - we can finally remunerate our amazing team in direct alignment to their daily contributions in their projects. We operate with an Entrepreneurial mindset and reward focused energy which is in deep honouring of what we want to achieve. At the same time we understand that as we provide our service we are constantly in a classroom for our individual, team and organisational learning and growth. Our team is highly disciplined in monitoring and reporting on a monthly basis. We go back to our reports, review where to adjust and how to steer towards the most impactful approach. We workshop our reports as a team monthly. We give each other critical feedback and we listen carefully to feedback given to us - in the school projects we receive feedback from Learners, Teachers and Parents. We know there is more than just one lane to drive on in project implementation. Each project is a fantastic teacher. We listen to where the project leads us and how it impacts the bigger picture. The ongoing task is to integrate around the job. We have had experience with several projects the past elven years. We hold each other accountable as a team! We find the right balance of resolve and humility. Another truly special partnership which has evolved is our partnership with LRMG. We deeply treasure the opportunity to co-create magic and are deeply humbled by the many hours of work and expertise that LRMG Digital has donated into the development of our Champion of Change APP. We are so excited to add this additional experience and tool to our school processes throughout 2019. It strengthens our offering and is a catalyst for opening more doors in regards to further partnerships and sponsorships. An indication of The SmilingOne Foundation’s growing profile is our strengthened ability to raise funds, contributing to a sound financial health this year. We obsess about quality and that every cent allocated in the projects has been maximised! As part of our Diversify Funding Strategy our Change Agents make a monthly donation as well so as to build buffers to assist sustainability of projects and soften any period of risk in a project (when a project is without funding). Last but not least we celebrate our newly established partnership with Kirsh Family Foundation. They have granted us a three year sponsorship starting March 2019 (new financial year).
  21. 21. GOVERNANCE AS A BOARD we are accountable for our standard of governance and therefore highly committed to ensure that we deliver what we promise. It begins with how we live our SmilingOne Dream, walking the talk and fuelling these values into building a strong and sustainable organisation. FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT POLICY - the SmilingOne Foundations financial management is done in terms of the South African Auditing Standards and audited financial statements are available.
