Reweaving the social fabric...

Pippa Jarvis, Managing Dir of TLC
Pippa Jarvis, Managing Dir of TLC

Pippa Jarvis, 43, is Managing Director of TLC Children’s Home, based in Southern Johannesburg.

For 27 years she has worked in every area of the organization, coming to a deep understanding of the operations before taking on the leadership role in 2015.

After completing a bachelor’s degree in education, Pippa devoted her life to the mission of the organization, advocating enthusiastically for the rapid, responsible placement of over 900 children into permanent, loving families.

In 2010 Pippa was voted as one of the Top 200 Young South Africans to take to lunch by The Mail and Guardian. She has participated in the Common Purpose Navigator program for Leadership development and completed a Certificate in Social Entrepreneurship at the Gordon Institute of Business Studies.

Over the years, Pippa has developed a passion for learning, networking, and supporting collaboration in the NGO space. Participating in many Forums, online courses, and always seeking opportunities to grow and learn more.

Committed to ensuring no child fell through the cracks of the broken placement system, Pippa is now the mother to 14 adopted children, 9 boys and 5 girls (aged 5 to 21).  She is dedicated to investing in the fundamental yearning each of us has, to truly belong.

Her current personal development is focused on learning as much as she can about Trauma-Informed Parenting and Conscious Discipline as methodologies that could be put into impactful practice in the residential care of babies and children. She hopes to help develop a support platform for mothers at risk of losing their babies to the System, and thereby stem the flow of babies coming into long term residential care settings.

She is an accomplished speaker with a wide repertoire of experience to draw on. From parenting to special needs, to life in an adoptive family, and running an NGO in the South African context, Pippa is able to share fascinating insights into a multitude of issues facing humanity today.

Another Hope Children Ministries

 
 
A little video from Another Hope Children's Ministries in Uganda thanking us for our Orphan Train Project donation ($1,000) toward their school fees. 

Jennifer E. Jones, a member of the Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland, Ontario, Canada, has been nominated to become Rotary International’s president for 2022-23, a groundbreaking selection that will make her the first woman to hold that office in the organization’s 115-year history.

 

Rotary started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships.

Over time, Rotary’s reach and vision gradually extended to humanitarian service. Members have a long track record of addressing challenges in their communities and around the world

 

"Whatever Rotary may mean to us, to the world it will be known by the results it achieves."
Paul Harris
Rotary founder
 
Our ongoing commitment
That commitment endures today through an organization that remains truly international. Only 16 years after being founded, Rotary had clubs on six continents. Our members now span the globe, working to solve some of our world’s most challenging problems.
 

We’re not afraid to dream big and set bold goals. We began our fight against polio in 1979 with a project to immunize 6 million children in the Philippines. Today, polio remains endemic in only three countries — down from 125 in 1988.

 

 
Still making history
 
With every project, we’re changing the world for the better. These stories trace our evolution as an organization through historical documents, artifacts, and images that show the people and events that shaped Rotary.
