One-to-One is the day when many of the service organisations in Cape Town team up with the business community and the City of Cape Town to create a fun day out for the mentally disabled Capetonians.
The participants play games at the various stalls where they win prizes, get treats and eats and enjoy the excitement and festive atmosphere.

Waterfront Rotary Club nominated Siyakhanyisa as the recipient of our share of funds raised at the Concert in the Convent Garden.
From the funds raised we could purchase a few items on the wish list of Siyakhanyisa: - a new stove (old stove was beyond repair) - chest deep freezer - small tables and chairs (children can now all have their meals together as they used to take turns)
Maryka Vermaak handed over a computer (donated by a friend of Rotary), which David Bradley kindly loaded with the Ubuntu ECD programmes.
