365 Ubuntuclimbs

Personal message

365 UbuntuClimbs is an initiative to show what we can accomplish when we work together.

I am climbing Table Mountain every day this year in 2018 and am asking for people to help me achieve my audacious goal of empowering 1 million South Africans this year, 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 people a basic right to safety;
  • One Heart for kids to help teach children to read and get our literacy rate up to 100%;
  • and The Sunflower Fund to help increase their donor registry and give people a second lease on 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.

Imagine being able to help 1 million people? It almost sounds impossible – but when we all donate just R1 a day that distant dream will become a reality.
