Published on

The year of 2017/18 is our 10th year in loving action and deeply committed contribution to making a difference in our beloved South Africa. It is a milestone! We pause and reflect on the wonderful achievements of our fellow TRI students who have embraced personal values-based leadership and live to be an example. Their success is our success. In true Ubuntu Spirit there is not one without the other!

THE CHANGE AGENT…
this is how we address crime in South Africa.

I am deeply humbled as I witness incredible courage amongst our students. We meet them in some of the toughest environments and extend to them the invite of change. Let us not underestimate what this means! It is for each student a complete rebuild of what he or she knows. It is a daily challenge of meeting and shifting the old energy and choosing a different approach.

You will in our annual report meet these courageous beings and witness what they do with a changed mindset; a mindset that no longer violates or perpetrates; a mindset that cares deeply to restore and heal , to nurture, inspire and to contribute. They have joined the heartbeat of transformation and play a significant role in guiding our SA youth and communities towards a greater future!

May you enjoy our Annual Report
With Love & Appreciation
Karina (Founder)

  4. 4. OUR VISION IN ACTION… 1. We facilitate CIRCLES OF CHANGE (COC) in highly challenged South African communities establishing a foundation for development with our personal values- based leadership program: THE RESPONSIBLE INDIVIDUAL (TRI). 2. We educate CHANGE AGENTS who facilitate dynamic COC processes within their communities which include: prisons, families, schools, youth at risk, businesses and organisations – in society at large. 3. Our CHANGE AGENTS are ROLE MODELS who also assist the important phase of re-integration, reducing the recidivism rate by helping parolees to build the bridge back into society, back home into their families and communities. 4. We are an EMPOWERMENT ARM for our beneficiaries, their families and communities. We do not do it for them. We do it with them. ”Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” The COC empowers the entrepreneurial journey of each student towards sustainable livelihood, operating in an abundant exchange. 5. We strongly believe in SUSTAINABILITY and that everything brought to a community must be able to stay and be nurtured within the community for continuous learning and growth. OUR VISION | CLARITY Social Cohesion, Crime Diversion & Prevention “We are continuously developing as a community. We thrive on shared values, shared challenges and equal opportunities. We walk united in diversity, each one of us knowing that it starts with a better ME (my individual responsibility) for a better WE (our shared responsibility). We are committed and passionate about contributing to the wellbeing of everyone in society. We build bridges instead of walls. WE ALL OWN A SHARE IN THE WELL-BEING OF OUR SOCIETY!

 The purpose of our Annual Report is to highlight our achievements for the year. However, only once we understand the depth of the work can we appreciate what has been achieved. We have to see beneath the surface and ask ourselves ‘What is the source of these challenges’? Do we recognise the deeper wounding? We cannot address the challenge if we are not addressing the wound! 1) We recognise THE WOUNDED 2) We fully live into our Mission Statement of inspiring Personal Values-based Leadership and equipping the wounded for his/her own awakening.

  10. 10. OUR PARTNERSHIPS | GROWTH THE DG MURRAY TRUST | LRMG | WITS DIGITAL CAMPUS We give thanks to DGMT for the support and for allowing us the opportunity to deepen our work throughout the year. We have thoroughly enjoyed our in-depth engagements with DGMT Innovation Manager Senzo Hlophe whom we reported to. We were deeply humbled by the time, energy and interest he invested in us as we fine-tuned our reports and communicated with even greater clarity. We give thanks to LRMG for being a treasured partner as well as an incredible platform of learning and growth for our Founder. The exposure and deep engagements in the world of business enriches her thinking and allows her to deepen TRI’s multi lingual capability. COC Education and each Change Agent benefits hugely from this. We give thanks to the Wits Digital Campus & Team (powered by LRMG) for sponsoring an inspiring online learning experience - Principles of Project Management - for one of our Change Agents. Franklin has strengthened his toolbox and fine-tuned his approach as a Project Manager of several projects. This benefits our beneficiaries hugely. Without partnerships we are nothing… Progress is a joint venture!
  11. 11. OUR PARTNERSHIPS | GROWTH DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONAL SERVICES (DCS) | RUC | DANISH EMBASSY We give thanks to RUC who has been a treasured partner the past six years. We enjoy bringing our LIVE reports to the congregation and share of our work; we appreciate the many wonderful connections, the generous donations and the invites for our Change Agents to contribute in many more ways; one example would be inviting Phumzile to cook at your annual fundraiser. Thank you for enriching our experience! Thank you for providing growth opportunity ! We give thanks to DCS for our special partnership these past 10 years! Our growth has only been possible because we have walked hand in hand with the prisons who have embraced our service delivery.
 Eight prisons in total since 2008: Brandvlei Maximum 2008 - 2013 Brandvlei Medium & Juvenile 2010 - 2012 Goodwood Prison 2009 - 2012 Worcester Medium 2009-2016 Helderstroom Prison 2013-2015 Malmesbury Prison since 2013 (active) Pollsmoor Prison 2012 (1 year) 
 reactivated in 2017 (active) We give thanks to The Royal Danish Embassy for opening your hearts to us in partnership and bringing danish business people to our projects. This has benefitted us in multiple ways - it opens opportunity for our beneficiaries for further support, it becomes a further avenue for us to build partnership and attract funding and it allows us to inspire projects abroad. We have had several engagements with inspiring minds who are intrigued by our approach. Each engagement, each opportunity contributes to our growth.
  12. 12. OUR PARTNERSHIPS | GROWTH DR. PAUL ABRAMOWITZ (SEX THERAPIST | PHD IN WESTERN HUMAN SEXOLOGY) We give thanks to Dr. Paul Abramowitz for spending two separate days with our group inside Malmesbury Prison, facilitating a sacred space for the men, offering a deeper exploration into what it means to bring consciousness into sexual expression and the cost of unconscious behaviour. The two days offered tremendous growth both to the inmates active in their TRI journeys as well as to our Change Agents who were given some additional lanes on their facilitation highways. Also a heartfelt thank you for the workbooks for the men, Paul! We give thanks to UCT Barbara Schmid as well as Department of Social Development Senior Lecturer Somaya Abdullah for the opportunity to join hands in partnership around Social Worker Sibonisiwe P. Pamburayi’s internship with our Foundation.

  14. 14. OUR PORTFOLIOS | 10 YEARS CELEBRATION | TRI MULTIPLIER RE-INTEGRATION PRIOR RELEASE | SA PRISONS | CHANGE AGENTS IN THE MAKING | THE STORY 2002 Catalyst: Our Founder Karina, originally from Denmark tragically looses her partner, the father of her children in a car crash. A much deeper journey calls her. She experiences the importance of ‘depth work’ and its profound impact in facilitating behavioural shifts. In 2005 she registers the SmilingOne Domain, it is a symbol of her own gradual shift and the intention to impact shifts in others. November 2006 Karina immigrates to South Africa. In ‘her suitcase’ she brings her own healing and development journey. She embarks on the writing of her book The Responsible Individual (TRI) and activates the first coaches in a coach training she is developing. She is looking for a community project as part of the coach educational training for students to deepen their COC2 caring practice. It is October 26th 2007. Karina connects with Jacobus Pansegrouw, a social worker from Brandvlei Maximum Prison at a business breakfast in Cape Town. He invites her to meet a group of prisoners - the Group of Hope - a week later. November 1st 2007 marks the one year anniversary of Karina arriving in South Africa. This is the day she arrives at Brandvlei Prison. 16 inmates courageously chooses to walk the journey with her and her student coach team. They officially begin sessions January 2008. Developing the TRI coaching methodology & COC Education has been an important ingredient in Karina’s own awakening to the resource she is. She is intentional about her own inner work and about her contribution in our world. She gives credit to each puzzle piece on her journey. TRI & COC has come ALIVE in the prison process and with each student who has had the courage to invite a new way of thinking and being into their lives.

  15. 15. 2012 2011 2013 16 inmates were exposed in the first year 
 8 were intentional about change 
 and chose to become champions for change In their COC educational training they extended the invite to fellow inmates (see images) and furthermore took TRI with them as they were transferred to 7 other prisons in the Western Cape activating the seed both within themselves and in those they met (fellow inmates). THE SEED IN EACH OF US = OUR POTENTIAL COC EDUCATION EVOLUTION 2008 - 2013 were instrumental in creating the framework for COC Education OUR PORTFOLIOS | 10 YEARS CELEBRATION | TRI MULTIPLIER RE-INTEGRATION PRIOR RELEASE | SA PRISONS | CHANGE AGENTS IN THE MAKING | THE STORY 2009 2010

 I N T E N T I O N A L Those who are ready to commit and are intentional about their development journey actively participate on our enabling platform provided by our Change Agents in COC Education. It is a very deep space. Many stay in TRI1 for at least a year to establish the foundation. TRI2 is almost like a Master Degree and requires extraordinary commitment and discipline from the Student as well as from the Facilitator Team. Those who have embarked on the TRI2 journey have taken a minimum of 2 years to complete their studies, some even more. TRI1 & TRI2 completion qualifies a student for full COC Activation. E X P O S E Very often the idea of profound change must be visited multiple times before we are able to commit. This is why we bring TRI EXPOSURE to the prison environment where the possibility can be visited in a safe environment. 
 Karina shares: “Luyanda was exposed to TRI in the early days in Brandvlei Prison. He did not graduate TRI. He approached me end of 2016 in Worcester Prison and thanked me for the seeds that had been planted in him while he visited the idea of change on the TRI enabling platform. He had taken up his studies and was committed to a life of learning and growth.”
  18. 18. However in the years with the SmilingOne Coaches such as Mr Skoji and my Trainer Karina Andersen inspired me to value life. They availed themselves as Students and Explorers of life. Their characteristics caught my heartbeat, true travel companions who gave me the gift of unconditional love as I discovered more of myself and my unique abilities, my unique potential. I opted to undertake the training path as a Student Coach [COC Education with SmilingOne]. A seed was planted in my life, as a blessing [at first] unnoticed. I embraced it with everything I had and today I am proud to be a puzzle piece of inspiration and change to my peers. I am very passionate about giving back to my peers. I enjoy being challenged by them. I learn from them. I love bringing the idea of TRI to the world. As I re-integrate back into society this year I would like to avail my assistance in SmilingOne Projects for Youth development, Community building, Prison processes (reintegration prior release) as well as Support for family members of inmates as well as victims I am an Explorer of Life and a dedicated life-long student. I trust fully in my values and in my ability to spread love, care and facilitate change. I open windows of opportunity as a Travel Companion and as a Guide to others. I always remain a student. When there is understanding and a set of values that encourages sharing, then the limitations, the needs and our perceived lacks can be acknowledged and effort can be put into using our values to appreciate life more. I have learned that when we ‘wake up’ to our human experience on this planet we stop running away, we stop building walls in and around our heads; instead we actively develop a deeper, wiser and more fulfilling motivation for our lives. I have spent almost a decade being a family member of SmilingOne. It has been incredibly challenging, fun and adventurous; an eye opener, especially in prison. A remarkable journey of depth, risks and learning that brings you to the core of your existence. On this path of self discovery I have fallen, been shaken and hurt so many times. The fear of falling overwhelmed me so much that it would have been easier to stay lying down; always feeling and assuming that no one cares which felt to be true initially because I did not care nor love myself and for too long I deprived myself of the gift of self love, self trust and self care.

 CHANGE AGENT PHUMZILE SALELA | RE-INTEGRATION POST RELEASE ACTIVATION | POLLSMOOR CRIME DIVERSION Phumzile shares: “SA prisons host some of the greatest talents and potential in our country; it is a place where people get to wake up because sometimes it is only when we are in the deepest of waters that we realise the gift of being on the surface. When we are awake we know how to appreciate this; not to drown, to float. It means we connect with our core being and what we are here to achieve - our goals - our purpose. The SmilingOne Prison process has taught me more about myself and made me aware of my environment. It has taught me to be aware of the environment of other people and where they come from. Touching the inmates with TRI makes me feel wonderful because I am doing something good for the people and for the community. It plays a big role in the man I am today, a man who’s life is a platform of learning for others. The prisons are in great need of TRI, not just in Pollsmoor but in all our prisons. They are in need of ambassadors for change. It is all about contributing to the wellbeing of others. By guiding someone to understand, to honour his/her values and to embrace challenges is like saving someone’s life. They begin to give their life meaning and to live out their potential. They begin to feel human again. I would like to share a story of one of the guys I met inside Pollsmoor Prison in December 2017 while he was awaiting trial. This is Siya. Upon his release he immediately contacted me. We have started a process in his location in Nyanga. We are three months into the project. I go there once a week… Siya first brought one person to our sessions, then he inspired another 15 youth to join us. Life is not just about one individual, it is really about all of us. TRI gives meaning to everyone and contributes to our growth. It helps us move towards meaningful activities in our lives.”

Honesty has been a big practice for him which has also been noticed by his family. He is in the process of learning what it means to respect - this starts with self respect. He is still learning to listen more deeply to his heart. ANGER FIGHTS BULLYING GANGS CRIME DRUGS/ALCOHOL UNLEARN CHOICE BE RESPONSIBLE JOB FAMILY HONESTY RESPECT LISTENING ACTION Mzimkhulu is interested in making a difference in his community. He has been part of the community policing forum - it is important to him to create a better environment to raise his children in. The sessions help him create a foundation for himself and to trigger his potential - learning the way of The session space has been important in Onele ‘growing up’ - being kinder in his relationship with his brothers and parents. He has practiced choice and to step into his key role as a brother and son. He is also a provider for two sons and struggling because he has no job. It is one of the focus areas in our session space as well - maturing into the job market. Sikho has big anger challenge and used to fight and beat up people.

 CHANGE AGENT FRANKLIN ESAU | RE-INTEGRATION POST RELEASE ACTIVATION | SCHOOLS | CRIME PREVENTION Franklin shares: “I have become older and my life experiences have matured me; I have become more wise in making choices. I have taken on the views and opinions of a Man; but also I was once a Child. I had my Youth and Adolescence and with that came along some gruesome times and deep struggles. I do not want to take anything away from my journey – however IF I could add something to my journey as a Youth I would have welcomed having a Change Agent in my life; someone to go to for guidance; someone who understands and offers me spaces of sharing. This is something not many of our Youth in South Africa has.”

 CHANGE AGENT FRANKLIN ESAU | RE-INTEGRATION POST RELEASE ACTIVATION | SCHOOLS | CRIME PREVENTION “I AM PROUD TO PLAY THIS SIGNIFICANT ROLE OF BEING A SMILING ONE CHANGE AGENT, PROVIDING AN ENABLING PLATFORM FOR CHANGE. • I remember that my first session with Wynberg High School Students brought tears as we in our sharing spaces uncovered the unfairness, the judgment and the bullying they were experiencing; it came to light that many of the Students were struggling with understanding Self and others. • In Mount View High School situated in the notorious neighbourhood of Hanover Park, Students were traumatised by violence. Alcohol and drug abuse was a daily invite, many of them were victims of crime. Their trust, self belief and optimism had been broken so many times. • Bishop Lavis High School Students were targeted by gangsterism and drugs, a constant negative influence impacting their future. • St. Andrews Secondary School in the community of Elsies River was also surrounded by gangsterism and influenced by drugs. Youth were targeted to join gangs and young woman were forced to engage in criminal activities. • Michausdal Senior Secondary School in Cradock is listed as a high drop-out School; here you will find abusive behaviour amongst and directed at Youth which sees many of the Students not completing School. • J A Calata Secondary School are faced with a high teenage pregnancy rate and are constantly dealing with drop-outs due to drugs and alcohol abuse from the Youth alongside abusive and violent activities in the community. OUR YOUTH IS OUR FUTURE These Challenges are influencing our Youth daily to an extend that we cannot imagine. The truth is that these challenges disallows them to reach their full potential, disallows them to uncover their passion and their dreams. SMILING ONE ACTIVATES CHANGE AGENTS IN SCHOOLING COMMUNITIES to expose our youth to the TRI opportunity, to enable them and activate them as Champions of Change. I am a Change Agent, an example, a role model to them. I walk a path with them, assisting them in understanding self and others, in learning and practicing their values, in finding meaning and living a life of purpose, building towards their Passion & their Dreams.”

During examination I would get real anxious and often stress about small things. I still stress about things but I am handling it in a different way. It is not about not being nervous, it is the ability to not sound nervous. If I am overwhelmed with nervousness it will not give me an opportunity to handle things with more clarity. I would love to help other teenagers also discover what is inside of them which can help them to cope with the anxiety - they often don’t have ways and means to deal with the anxiety. I have learnt that I can be in control of my emotions by allowing myself to feel and be honest with the way I feel - I am responsible for my actions. I AM LEARNING TO NOT SELL MYSELF SHORT TO THE TALENT I HAVE - I AM LEARNING TO SOUND LESS NERVOUS. My past was very hurtful. I always wondered why things like that has happened to me. I see now that things will happen but the importance is how I react to it and handle it. I was in a dark space and did very hurtful things to myself in order to deal with my pain and hurt – as a teenager I felt that I had no other options. With time in the sessions I have started to understand that there are options in ways you can handle your challenges. I used to be very shy, my confidence was low - my biggest challenge was trust. I am starting to trust myself more as I am learning about myself. I AM LEARNING TO NEVER GIVE UP ON MYSELF & TO SPEAK UP. I AM LEARNING THAT I AM SPECIAL. I have done a lot of things to disappoint my parents and I have not been attending many things to elevate me into being a better person. Joining the process was going to help me find perspective and give me focus. In my past I did not have a care for things and I was not stable in what I wanted to do – even at school I was not giving my hundred percent. I lacked focus. I did most things just to please others. I am still figuring out what I want to do and who I want to be. I understand now that school is a priority and it needs more focus - also to handle my challenges day by day. I have learnt that we all play our role to make things come alive and we have a responsibility towards our role and the people we are living with – whether in our community or at home. Being the oldest made me feel I had a responsibility - finally I understand what that responsibility means. I AM LEARNING TO NOT CLASH WITH OTHERS AND NOT FORCE MY WAY - I AM MATURING - I AM HAVING LESS ARGUMENTS - I AM LEARNING TO TAP INTO OPPORTUNITY.

  29. 29. TRAININGS | EVENTS | NETWORKING | CELEBRATIONS TRAINING: In-house Change Agents were in bi-weekly COC educational sessions which ensured that their tools were continuously sharpened, that they were challenged to deepen their experience, fine-tune their approach and stay fit for all their guidance processes. This past year they were furthermore enriched by the presence of our intern Pamburayi who joined our trainings for a period of 2 months and shadowed us in our projects. She offered us valuable insights from a social worker perspective. It was a wonderful exchange. One-on-one sessions were provided either in person or via Skype for depth coaching sessions as well as follow up on projects. We worked closely on our project delivery. We value learning - each moment provides us with classrooms. As we open the door to 2018/19 we show up with our ready-to-learn mindset. 60 HOURS
  30. 30. We entered into an internship with Pamburayi as part of her studies as a qualified Social Worker specialising in Probation and Correctional Practice. The agreement was signed between UCT, Pamburayi and SmilingOne. We committed to give her exposure to our projects inside prison, in schools and in Khayelitsha, to our COC educational trainings offered to our Change Agents and to our governance processes for an in-depth understanding of how we run our NPO. It was really special to experience our work and processes through her eyes. We deeply enjoyed her feedback and her interest in making a contribution. GRADUATION CEREMONY: Once a year in each prison process we celebrate the remarkable journeys of change, the courage it takes to commit fully and be intentional about change. We give thanks for the incredible opportunity of journeying alongside each other. In 2017 we exposed our TRI students from Mount View High School to the TRI students in our prison process. The experience was enriching for everyone - the students and the inmates. OBJECTIVE 2018/19: We continue to build bridges between our projects to offer our students exposure and platforms that enable progress in their lives. TRAININGS | EVENTS | NETWORKING | CELEBRATIONS OBJECTIVE 2018/19: We aim to expand our partnership with UCT and are open to more such experiences in the future. This could help us with in-depth research in our project areas and profiling of our beneficiaries.
  31. 31. PAROLEE SUPPORT: We are committed to walk an extra mile for our COC students whom we have journeyed with inside prison, who have shown commitment and been intentional about their change. We welcomed home Thando Gwampi and Marco Simons. We are over the moon with excitement and we are looking forward to partner with them on their re-integration path. Thando is an artist, a poet and an entrepreneur by heart. Marco loves sports and has already found work in a fitness centre. 
 We have the past year journeyed deeply with 8 Parolees/Families. Our aim in 2018/19 is to strengthen our networking platform and inviting more people and businesses to offer opportunities to these men (indirectly impacts their families positively). NETWORKING: We have attended stakeholder meetings at Pollsmoor Prison. We understand the importance of nurturing our relationships within DCS and to be aligned to our partners thinking. This allows us to offer the best possible service and to do what we do best! TRAININGS | EVENTS | NETWORKING | CELEBRATIONS PAROLEES/FAMILIES8 560 HOURS
  32. 32. NETWORKING: We hosted a group of danish business people in Franklin’s CMD youth project at Mount View High School. They were referred to us by the Royal Danish Embassy. It was a fantastic opportunity to showcase our Change Agent work and to invite partnerships. Franklin did a superb job. It has opened the door to conversations around our approach and how it can benefit projects abroad. We aim to continue to build partnerships and invite more people to visit our projects. TRAININGS | EVENTS | NETWORKING | CELEBRATIONS TRAINING | CELEBRATION: Caroline is a wonderful addition to our team and helps us by keeping our spaces clean. This allows for wonderful energy to flow through our work zones. She has been exposed to SmilingOne for two years now and is ready to step onto our enabling platform. This is a huge achievement as it takes commitment to begin to take charge of her growth path. Cleaning is not her passion however she has been willing to take it on to earn a living and provide for her two children. She will now start a guidance process and begin a day school program to learn new skills that will take her towards her passion. Watch this space!

  35. 35. We are proud of what our activated Change Agents have achieved this year with very little funds. They have tightened their belts but certainly not the quality of their service delivery. They were instrumental in opening the door to the DG Murray Trust where we received a grant of R100,000 in the beginning of our financial year. The amount might look insignificant to some but to us it is a door that has opened to an exciting partnership, one that we have been committed to nurture and build upon as we have showcased the deepest essence of our work. We have found in this new partnership incredible learning and growth opportunity and the engagements over the year provided us with a platform to simplify and clarify. Senzo Hlophe, DGMT Innovation Manager has been such a gift to us - his time, his curiosity and his energy investment turned our reports into fun learning experiences. Thank you for seeking to understand Senzo - our thinking is refreshed. F I N A N C I A L R E P O R T We put out several other funding proposals that did not carry fruit however our efforts in the fundraising arena could have been much greater. We lack capacity and are in great need of an extension to our team that can focus on raising funds for our foundation. This will be a key focus in the new year as we would like to activate more Change Agents and want to (MUST) reward them fairly. Their contribution to our society is of utmost importance, they dig where only few can dig, they take learning and development to a whole new level. With an expansive toolkit they hold such an important key to address crime and other ills in our society - they understand deeply what this job entails. Some of the routes we would to take towards sustainability is to: - invite more board members who have extensive networks, who understand the long-term strategy in the field of our work (crime diversion, crime prevention, social cohesion) and who are keen to assist us in our expansion. - Invite our existing network to assist us in fundraising, openly ask for support and continue to highlight the significance of our work. After 10 years we have built substantial evidence to support this. 2018 feels like a year of break through!
