365 Ubuntuclimbs

Personal message

365 UbuntuClimbs is an initiative to show what we can accomplish when we work together. No Contribution is “small”.

I’m climbing Table Mountain every day this year in 2018 so collectively we can empower 1 family, one child, one life by simply sponsoring (or as I call – investing) R1 per climb. How I plan to empower South Africans is using the money with 3 causes:

  • Habitat for Humanity to build homes and give a family a basic right to safety;
  • One Heart for kids to help teach a child to read 
  • and The Sunflower Fund to help increase their donor registry and give someone a second lease on life.

Imagine being this family; this child, this person. How it would change your life.

I’m passionate about this country and believe we have incredible power when we work together. It’s going to take great perseverance and dedication and that’s why I’m dedicating a full year to achieve this.

We can and we are already doing it. Be part of the Ubuntu family
