Good Hope Psychological Service was delighted when it was announced that Elzabé Broekmann (Chairperson, GHPS) was a Provincial Finalist and Regional Runner-up during the Community Builder of the Year Competition (Group Category) in the Western Cape. During this annual event awards are presented by the Department of Social Development (in conjunction with the Sowetan, Old Mutual and the SABC) to people who make an important contribution to community development. We feel that through this award both our work as a GHPS team and Elzabé’s individual effort, contribution and commitment over the past decade have been recognised. The award, which has brought the work of GHPS to the attention of a wider public, has inspired our staff and our many sponsors. Now, more than ever, we believe the task that we have set before us is a good one and worthy of our sustained efforts and commitment.
