Overseas visitors at The Papillon Foundation

ROSETTENVILLE – Gustavo Otero and Vida Ip, representatives of Investors Trust, a Cayman Islands based insurance company, paid a visit to The Papillon Foundation in Rosettenville recently.

Investors Trust has decided to support The Papillon Foundation in its efforts to improve communities in this region.

It has service offices worldwide and they specialise in medium to long-term unit-linked investment products tailored to international investors around the world.

The Papillon Foundation had 20 children from one of the day care centres that they support (Yeshua Anointed Crèche) welcoming the visitors with African songs.

Children were honoured with Investors Trust Cares T-shirts by Otero and Ip on behalf of Investors Trust. The children enjoyed sweets and cool drinks afterwards while the guests toured the centre.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to visit The Papillon Foundation and show our support in this region. We thank the foundation for the positive impact they have built in this community, and we look forward to collaborating on future efforts to improve the lives of those in the region,” said Gustavo Otero.

In attendance were also several Papillon board members and invited guests from companies that support Papillon’s social outreach work such as IT-Web, Imperial Holdings, IITPSA, Bastion Graphics, Mutual and Federal, X-Lan, and the Forest Town Methodist Church.

Stephen Smith, founder of ThePapillon Foundation, extended everyone’s gratitude to Resthaven for the transporting of the children in their bus.

“It is totally unbelievable that an organisation such as The Papillon Foundation, with a small staff, can deliver such stunning results in community empowerment work. Over 8 508 computer graduates is a number that anyone would associate with a large college or university, and the fact that these graduates are unemployed community members blows my mind,” said Mr Vassen Moodley of Santam.
