87 ALUMNI ANGELS
Our Angels initiative is a social service best practice model which takes care of primary community needs: housing and food, transport and other forms of social access, employment and critical care. It speaks to Alumni challenges arising out of COVID, related to life circumstance or simply the responsibilities of age, like care for the elderly and the disabled in our families and communities.
Route 87 is an exciting platform where all the Alumni, currently 106 active members, potentially 200 or more including the youth, can showcase their products, businesses, services, entrepreneurial projects or co-ops in a plug and play e-commerce environment: a fully supported marketplace driven by newsletters, advertising, events and in the future, an accompanying mobile application.
87 ON MAIN
87 on Main: “Progress through Business” is our business development department. under this theme to Foundation provides tactical and practical support to our collective business base in the form of marketing, developmental and collaborative support. We nurture entrepreneurial activities and integrate our youth into the emerging post COVID business arena.
87 ALUMNI HUBS
Our Alumni Hubs are the originating theme of the BHS 1987 Foundation. They are the main drivers of our activities: the spaces from which we brainstorm, identify community needs and hatch our social initiatives. This year still plays host to three hub events. Hubs are key also in the building out of next year’s formal dinner, our Golf Day fundraiser and the election of endowment candidates.
Legacy 87: “Positioing The Future” is our youth empowerment initiative. Legacy 87 raises funds for endowments and bursaries and, in collaboration with our international hubs, creates opportunities for safe student exchange experiences, both local and international gap year programmes, volunteer initiatives, career development and self actualization. In our first month of operation we are seeking full or partial bursaries for one Alumni family.Prosperity For the
