“Often, when families face poverty, many other human rights have been neglected.”

Danielle Moosajie

Moosajie has for the past 12 years created avenues to help people grow. Her outlook is straightforward – the youth must come first.

A Master’s graduate, Moosajie is the director of Arise, an award-winning NGO that is committed to spring-boarding families and ending generational trauma. 

“If caregivers aren’t dealing with the trauma they have faced in the past, that severely impacts their parenting,”

Moosajie says.

With a range of support groups and individual counselling sessions on offer, she wants to improve the well-being of the community at large.

With her support, families in the Cape Flats are uplifted together and progress together. Holiday clubs, home visits and school programmes driven by the NGO all serve to help heal the community.

“Though I’ve seen pain, I’ve also seen change…When we strengthen families, we strengthen communities.”

Danielle Moosajie

Her passion and commitment provide a soft landing space for people fighting social challenges.
