THE KEEN GENE
It's part of our genetic makeup to care, nurture and flourish. We need to activate our keen gene and cultivate a culture that encourages society to care, nurture and flourish too.
We all have the gene, and now's the time to collectively have a hand in discovering the value that it brings.
We aim to encourage a keen volunteer culture within Cape Town.
The Keen Movement supports like-minded organisations through assisting them with projects, drives and fundraisers. This collaboration allows us to create opportunities for anyone to become involved.
Keen humbly began in 2013, from a passion for making a positive impact within our community.
After a year of organising birthday parties at a children’s home, The Keen Movement was registered in 2014. Along with overwhelming support from the community, we soon found ourselves hosting a variety of events on a monthly basis. These events allowed us to nurture relationships through activities such as arts and crafts, reading, gardening, watching movies, playing games and sports.
Many brainstorm sessions and treasured memories later, we have shifted our focus to encouraging a keen culture within Cape Town. We now aim to continuously support, build relationships and partner with existing organisations.
Our journey so far has taught us that everyone is keen at heart. We believe that by contributing towards a community that fosters it – a kind, keen culture will become our new norm. This network of consistently passionate people can make all the difference in the world, and Cape Town too!
