Many of the projects will be exhibiting with project leaders there to talk about their work and aspirations. Including some of my favourites: Abalimi Bezekhaya, Greenpop, lizwi Photo Club, Mdzananda Animal Clinic and Streetsmart South Africa.
Please spread the word to friends, colleagues, clients, travellers and anyone who is interested in attending this proudly South African extravaganza! For the very best cause.
I’m going to be there right up close and person, undoubtedly very moved by the palpable, raw, vibrant talent that we have in this beautiful country of ours. I cannot wait!
