I am driven by the desire to live a life of significance and to leave my best contribution in the world, reflected in the work that I do and the way I choose to live my life. I’m an advocate for progress where my combination of skills, experience, strengths and passion, as well as my flair for creative thinking and a fierce commitment to contributing to the achievement of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), position me at the forefront of socio-economic transformation and development in Africa. The principal goals and initiatives that my work speaks to are.
I am currently one of the Global Ambassadors however I’ve taken a more drastic approach to their programme as they know it. I have committed to X10 raising the ordinary expected funding amount of $10,000. I am serious about bringing the transformative social business model to South Africa and am working closely with the global team to create a sustainable business venture that other countries on the continent may benefit from.
I have committed to raising $100,000 over the coming year to ensure that we are able to train 100 young people to become yoga teachers in South Africa over 3 years to take the practice and work into their communities, and also allow them to earn a dignified living from it.

Wellness is the overarching umbrella that I work towards achieving and sharing through my work. I’ve partnered with the South African Ambassador of this global campaign as one of their country Associates bringing light to the cause, with a particular focus on how yoga may be used as a tool to achieve wellness.
I am working with key players in the yoga community in South Africa to produce events on the same day in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town in elevating the impact of the 2020 day of celebration. As a principle, we would like to keep the events free to attend, based on the ethos of the day which is to continue to grow the reach and impact of yoga. Should you be interested to support us in creating a memorable yoga experience with sponsorship or any other in kind contributions, please get in touch!
Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu – it means you must serve your fellow man. You see? You must respect and serve your fellow man faithfully. That’s what because without their support you can never progress. That’s what it means
I’m all about going ‘far’ and not ‘fast’, as expressed in the African Proverb “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”. Reach out!
