Over the Walls Together focuses on a few issues that affect local communities. Our Campaigns are spearheaded by volunteers that are passionate about effective and positive change.
365 Protect Women & Gender Equality
Community involvement is key to social development.
We host events with our performing artists to inspire young minds and bring about positivity within our community. Our sponsors regularly assist in putting together hampers pertaining to specific campaigns.
Senior Citizen Fun Day
An event held in 2019. We hosted Females from the TAFTA Senior Citizens Home for a day of entertaining, pampering and connectivity. Be Pampered Spa treated the ladies to relaxing evening & Jayshree of Mystic Sisters provided the ladies with engaging talks.
Reimagining Humanity Positive Affirmation Workshop
(Gender Based Equality)
Our Join Hands Music Video, Photo Shoot & Positive Affirmation Workshop was a huge success. We invited women, men & children from our communities to get involved in our #endviolenceagainstwomenandgirls music video. We started off with a positive affirmation workshop and a discussion on how affirmations can help us to overcome gender based inequality.
Youth Empowerment - Your Vision Your Goals
In 2017 Over The Walls Together Foundation went on a road trip visiting schools and meeting learners in Kwa-Zulu Natal South Africa with our Turning Dreams into goals campaign.
Our goal is to help learners understand the importance of turning their dreams into goals and creating a vision and a action plan for the future based on their dreams. Our goal was to encourage young minds to dream big, create a vision and feel inspired to reach their goals.
We started with a game of getting to know each learner by inviting them talk about what they enjoy about their school life, friends life and family. spoke about future career goals and what they thought there strengths and weaknesses are.
Each learner was handed personal development dream form to fill in their goals for school, home and the goals for the world. Our focus is helping young people realize that they have unlimited potential to achieve their dreams, help heal and change our world. To help develop healthy and safe youth and adult partnerships in our communities where each generation can learn from each other. We want to initiate and stimulate conversations with young children with where they see themselves in the future and how do they get to that vision. Our school visits included some fun educational games and singing with South African singer Eric Damont. Eric got the learners involved in singing and dancing. It was an exciting experience enjoyed by all. Helping youth understand the value of goal setting, creating an action plan and working towards their goals. Focused on youth overcoming the problems they face as well as teaching them new skills.
Christmas Toy Hamper Distribution
In 2018 Over The Walls Together Foundation distributed 100 toy hampers to children staying in low income area in Durban. Christmas is a difficult time for families and children living in poverty. For these families toys are not on their shopping list as basic grocery items are the priority.
Co-Founders Jayshree Mallaya and Winn Coleman wanted the children to feel that life isn’t only about survival but also about having fun and playing with their toys. The duo sponsored the toy hampers and meals to Over The Walls Together Foundation. It was heartwarming to see the children get so excited about their toys. For many children it was their first toy.
