At the Health Promotion South Africa Trust our heart and passion is health education and information provision; we do not record our results in dollars or euro’s, but rather in the impact we have on the lives of the people we touch through our health education programmes. All personal details of participants to our workshops are registered, which enables us to maintain contact with them and thus in time, we can evaluate and measure the true impact we have in the community and see how lives have been changed.
