Personal message

My name is Coenie Olivier. This fund is set up to support the Back 2 Basics Youth Adventure Campsite, run by my parents, Lanie Olivier(58) and Michael Olivier(63). The campsite is located 10km from the small town of Grabouw in the Western Cape.

Back 2 Basics has been the place where many learners, teachers, different faith denominations, youth groups, and even companies doing teambuildings, have come to make memories and make a difference. The environment is one is which everyone is touched by the beauty of the surrounds and everyone who visits feels like they have a place and a role to play in this world. The space was created to facilitate personal development but in the understanding that no-one exists alone and we are all part of the bigger picture. The activities focus on a problem solving as a team- giving everyone a voice and teaching even the youngest of learners that they have value and belong.

The campsite, with its main focus on facilitating youth development, is not supported financially by any organisation or churches and depends solely on camps.

Due to the lockdown, no income has been generated from late March until now and almost all future bookings have been cancelled. Not only is the campsite currently unable to pay staff and utilities, the campsite is not able to generate any funds to carry it through the winter months when bookings normally slow down.

The effects of Covid-19 impacts not only the livelihood of my parents and the staff of Back 2 Basics, but also the ability of the campsite to continue to make a difference in the lives of each of those that come to the campsite.

Up until now we have been doing everything we can in our personal capacity to save the campsite while praying for a miracle. We need help make it possible to save the campsite.

Reaching the target will mean that the campsite will be able to pay its current debts and survive the slow winter season. We hope that by then, school, church and youth orginisations will be comfortable to book camps again to allow the campsite to return to its work of improving lives.

The funds will go towards ensuring the campsite is able to:
1. Service and repay its current debts
2. Pay its monthly utility bills
3. Pay its property rent
4. Paying salaries

Funds will go directly to the Back 2 Basics bank account and the money of all donations will be clearly tracked to account for every penny received.
