For those who don't know me, I'm John Vlok a 24 year old South African, Gauteng. I currently work in Digital Marketing and Manage a Professional Cycling team but my passion lies in uplifting and encouraging people to achieve their goals. I have actively been working on outreach programs from the tender age of 6. Starting with a fundraiser for Wet Nose to currently volunteering at an NPO "Lifting Dreams Soweto" on a weekly basis. Since then I have always had a passion to help people around me with my full capability. I have found over the years that I am at my happiest when the people around me are having a good time and smiling.
I found out about Angels of East Africa through a close friend of mine whom we both share similar passions for kids and helping others. So when I found out about the 3-week outreach program to Uganda I jumped at the opportunity
Which brings me here.
I'm looking to raise funds to go to Uganda on a 3 week outreach program. Where we will be living with the bare minimum. While helping at the Orphanage with any labour they need at the time be it, making meals for the kids to building bathrooms and cleaning up.
Donations will all go to Angles of East Africa which helps cover the costs of us staying at the orphanage (Food, Flights, Visas etc)
This is a passion and a dream I have always had and I aim to make it a reality to live off the smiles in Uganda and do what I can while I am there to help the Men and Women of Uganda.
