XXXI Bolts of lightning

With such a rich complex project

  – A leader in its field –

Great challenges one would expect

  But must solutions yield

 

A lot of folks do recognize

  The project’s super grades

They see with not too much surprise

  Its many accolades

 

The Stockholm Challenge was the first

  With a special award

From global peers Khanya emersed

  High praises it has scored

 

Then more achievements followed on

  Most cases –  a first prize –

A great number of trophies won

  In every form and size

 

The Premier of the Western Cape

  Some special trophies gave

Thrice in a row in such fine shape

  Amidst a fancy rave

 

It was a tribute truly great

  When T T one hundred

To Khanya gave top first class rate

  Placed on their honour’s grid

 

Impumelelo did present

  – Backed by Foundation Ford –

At a grand City Hall event

  A super gold award

 

For public service betterment

  – The praises reached the sky –

Awarded by the Government

  Through the C P S I

 

This Centre tries to stimulate

  The Public Sector space

Encourage all to innovate

  New paradigms embrace

 

Sometimes it is quite dangerous

  To get pats on the back

When life is bright and prosperous

  Obscured are things that lack

 

While big awards are rolling in

  Beware – pride takes a toll –

Resist the dazzle of the win

  Stay focused on the whole

 

To prove that one is very wise

  Stay humble all the time

Flaws will be there – must realize –

  A fault is not a crime

 

Do not be blinded by success

  The flaws you then won’t see

At all times quality assess

  Remain from failure free

 

It’s proved by Khanya – there’s no doubt –

  That it is possible

I T does bring a change about

  Shows what is viable

 

Technology can with success

  Be rolled out on large scale

Khanya refined the whole process

  A documented trail

 

The value of all these awards

  A signal loud and clear

The stamp that industry affords

    On their gift list appear

 

The greatest benefit derived

  Is when sponsors assist

They seek to aid schools once deprived

  Their help one must enlist

 

Most of these donors are quite keen

  Give help to schools in need

But sadly they’ve felt through the years

  The way their purses bleed

 

They’ve seen their money disappear

  No bottom to this pit

Away from schools they then did steer

  For them no I T kit

 

Since they now have the needed proof

  Of Khanya’s huge success

They can no longer stand aloof

  Schools’ needs must help address

 

It’s good to see that more and more

  Rich donors with good will

In numbers great come to the fore

  Help pay the I T bill

 

They have become – through Khanya’s fame –

  Partners whom schools can trust

They live up to their noble claim

  Give weight to Khanya’s thrust

 

Some contribute in cash – some kind –

  Each gift is valued much

Good partners – very hard to find –

  Schools’ hearts they truly touch

 

There are those who can give advice

  That aids one to excel

Their value bring – without a price –

  Helps faux pas to expel

 

The partners do not all donate

  Some are commercial firms

Remaining in their vendor state

  But do so on good terms

 

These vendor partners value add

  – Part of the Khanya team –

Consistent service to be had

  One body it may seem

 

To eat an elephant is tough

  It is no simple feat

A bite a time is not enough

  This mammoth task to beat

 

Good partners will help ease this task

  Invite them to the meal

But just be careful whom you ask

  That you get a good deal
