It all started with an email … the gauntlet thrown down by a colleague in our UK office, to join him in participating in the African Centurion Endurance Race! The event, the fourth edition to be held in South Africa, is taking place on 26-27 October in Stellenbosch and involves a 100 mile/ 160.9km walk.
Capital International (SA) are entering two teams of four work buddies, striving to complete this mammoth distance within 24 hours and we are doing this, not only to rise to the challenge set by our colleague, but to also raise money for Souper Troopers, a Cape Town based non-profit, empowering the homeless to make sustainable changes in their lives.
We have been hugely inspired by the much-needed work Souper Troopers do, and through their philosophy of inclusion and sustainability, have facilitated spaces where the homeless can feel ‘human’ and have some fun in an inclusive environment of Dignity, Love and Respect.
Through our ongoing partnership with Souper Troopers, we hope to bring about some small changes that we wish to see in our world.
Please join us in supporting their work.

Kerry Hoffman spent a day sharing soup and sandwiches with people living on the street and that experience led to the establishment of Souper Troopers, a level 1 B-BBEE contributor, registered NPO and PBO that aims to restore dignity to homeless people and help them reintegrate them into society, thereby achieving its purpose of eradicating homelessness.
