October 2013
Although the festive season and summer is just around the corner, it's still business as usual at Fasset. We've been hard at work with grant processing, Lifelong Learning training, tender evaluations as well as planning for the year ahead.

We’ve also spent some time at the Refalletse Primary School and donated a veggie garden with the help of ACCA(SA) and Blackmoon Advertising & Design.



Please remember to diarise the grant and accreditation application deadlines as indicated below. To find out about what's happening at Fasset read below or visit: www.fasset.org.za

Kind Regards
