The Little Optimist Trust
The Little Optimist Trust was established in 2017 by Greg Bertish and registered as a Public Benefit Organization in 2018.
Optimism is a potent health tonic! Through our talks, books and movies we inspire kids to be optimistic about their lives and their futures. Our Sailing Academy empowers kids through skills training and therapy.
In partnership with our key sponsors we fundraise to renovate, refurbish and brighten up paediatric health care, primary care and education facilities. We offer them hope and we “inject” them with positivity and inspiration to get better faster.
Our main fundraiser of the year is The Great Optimist Race, which takes place during the Cape Town International Boat Show in October each year.
