The team, based in Western Cape, South Africa is largely based in Stellenbosch and supported by a satellite team in Cape Town. We have well-established relationships with a variety of community partners in and around the previously disadvantaged areas ofStellenbosch, such as in Jamestown and Kayamandi, where our primary operations are based. Our project link well with after-care programmes and environmental clubs, spanning across both primary and secondary school age groups. Excursions are both terrestrial and marine-based with a large focussed placed on tackling local problems, especially from the surrounding farming communities. Holiday programmes are also being crafted and this far we have been privileged to be working alongside The Pebbles Project in the Hemel and Aarde Valley, Hermanus. We have a diverse, passionate group of students who have contributed a massive amount of time and effort into making a difference. They continue to do so every day, and for that, we are ever grateful.
