Societas Komitee / Committee


The Societas committee is looking forward to a successful 2024 with exciting projects and initiatives.

In 2023 we decided to have two junior members on our committee to create continuity in the Societas system. The junior members, Xander Yntema and Derek Vermooten are currently in  Gr 8. They showed commitment to all of the Societas projects and have a passion for serving the community.

The committee from left to right: Luchwayito Mbaliswana; Stephanus de Kock; Caleb Waugh (Vice Chairman); Altus du Plessis; Francois Dercksen (Chairman); Daniel Prinsloo and Xander Yntema (Derek Vermooten absent)

Here is what some of our committee members had to say about their passion for Societas:

“I really love the type of projects and work that Societas is doing. Helping the community as far as possible is something I also strive for everyday. I have been involved in Societas for a time now and it has been the best decision that I ever made. I also really love taking care of nature and I enjoy being in an outdoor environment even if I clean the river or plant trees. It really is a privilege just to be part of something so special like Societas”. – Altus du Plessis

“I love nature and helping people in need. I would love to give back to the community and help make the world a better place”. – Stephanus de Kock

“I’ve been consistently inspired by the remarkable work Societas has been doing. I’m eager to contribute my time and effort to support the program’s mission and make a difference in the lives of those in need”. – Luchwayito Mbaliswana
