Molweni / Hello, my name is Craig aka Makhosi and I run UBuntu Bridge (www.learnxhosa.co.za), a Xhosa language and cultural bridging organisation.
Sinovuyo Lunda is a 22-year-old local villager of Lubanzi, Eastern Cape.
We met him on the Wild coast near Lubanzi when backpacking, where he helped guide us out of a sticky situation. We are now running a Xhosa language retreat in the village. When we heard about this idea and dream of his, we decided to donate money and help crowdfund his dream.
Sinovuyo is a local villager of Lubanzi Village, Eastern Cape. He is busy building a juice bar style restaurant, and venue for hire on the picturesque hills of the Wild Coast.
The restaurant is to be a healthy and conscious place, where people hang out, enjoy the view, have a delicious healthy smoothie or juice, and enjoy freshly produced food or do yoga on the deck with ocean view.
His goal is to be self-employed and of great importance to him is that his parents also benefit from his startup. He aims to have the restaurant complete within two months of receiving funding to buy the roof and final supplies.
Most of the work has been done by him and so far has been entirely self-funded. He works closely with Lubanzi Lodge, and has a working relationship that will see a steady stream of clients.
He is also a WESSA selected tourism steward and protector of his cultural heritage and runs his own canoeing initiative.
Please do see the rough video we made from the footage we were sent.
This project and managing the funding to initiate its completion will inspire Sino towards self-sufficiency and collaborative development. It will also create self-employment and will also employ and inspire others in the village, which is in a very rural, under-developed area.
Please do support this campaign and sinovuyo's dream, but most importantly, come have a juice, do some yoga, go canoeing and learn Xhosa in this precious part of our beloved country and the world! Yizani bo!
