A Note from our Chairman

I believe that we are all called to live lives that are bigger than ourselves. I further believe that one can only gain a sense of true fulfillment and happiness, when involved in something that takes you outside your comfort zone and requires you to give of yourself. It was to this end that the Paw-Paw Foundation was established.

 Our organization came about as a result of a simple idea that grew wings. We wanted to somehow assist the poor and needy, but did not know how to go about it. There is so much poverty and strife in the world, one does not know where to begin to help. And so we started trying to do at least something positive! Some hard lessons have been learned, but the Paw-Paw Foundation has grown magnificently and now seems to have a life of its own.

 We have noble and lofty plans for 2009 and beyond. In particular, our Ziphakele Gardens project is proving to be a real winner.

 Yours Sincerely

 Paul Myers
