  • Nick and Penny Brooks

    Nick and Penny are from the UK, where Nick is an entrepreneur, Company Director and business mentor, and Penny is a teacher of Economics and Business subjects. Every time they come down they donate a substantial amount of 2nd hand clothing and sports uniforms as well. In 2014 they used their combined expertise to write an Enterprise Programme to enable BiA students to learn about business and enterprise, by planning, setting up and running a company. This was delivered by the BiA mentors to students in grades 10 and 11 at Plett Secondary and Wittedrift High schools over 6 months, with dozens of learners taking part and learning skills to give them a better chance of finding work or to start their own business one day in the future. Since then, Nick and Penny have delivered a shorter version of the programme on each of their visits to Plett. By starting and registering UK Supporters of Born in Africa as a UK charity, their aim is to grow awareness of the charity in the UK by holding fundraising activities, and seeking more godparents across the country.
