ONE to ONE Event in Cape Town

ONE to ONE has been held annually in Cape Town since 1981. It is an ever-growing event where one can get involved and make a real difference in the lives of those with an intellectual disability.

Your involvement can be as 1) stall holder, 2) a “friend” or 3) as a sponsor to assist in making this event a huge success.

More and more participating organisations are getting involved and they come from all corners of the Cape Town community. It’s a tangible and sincere display of caring; one that the disabled community undoubtedly appreciate.

Doing Good. A Challenge.

As established as ONE to ONE has become, on the communal “to do and be part of” list, the challenge to stage the event is finding a suitable sheltered venue. What is important is accessibility as well as size to house +- 8000 people who make the magic happen!


In the centre of Cape Town, one of the only venues that addresses those needs is the covered parking area  of the Cape Town Stadium.

Our interaction with management of the stadium was most positive and cordial in a collective effort to  “make it happen“.

One to One is a Public Spirited Event Epitomising Social Responsibility.
The project has been held annually for 38 years.

Having experienced the magic when one was at school or college, the 3 simple words of the name mentioned kindles a desire to be part that magic again and again!
