“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
The Foundation believes in the power of collaboration and going further when we do things together.
It’s like the story of the old man watching a little boy on the beach, pausing every so often to pick up a starfish and throw it into the sea.
When asked what he was doing, the young boy replied, “Throwing starfish into the ocean. The tide has washed them up onto the beach, and they can’t return to the sea by themselves. When the sun gets high, they will die unless I throw them back into the water.” The old man replied, “But there must be tens of thousands of starfish on this beach. I’m afraid you won’t really be able to make much of a difference.” The boy bent down, picked up yet another starfish and threw it as far as he could into the ocean. Then he turned, smiled, and said, “It made a difference to that one!”
This is why we collaborate with several local NPOs, including Louis Oosthuizen’s Foundation57 because we believe in making a difference to the one – who will eventually become the masses.
If your NPO would like to join us in making a difference, get in touch today.

“Healthier and better-nourished children reduce the burden on society.” Petrie Cronje
We have joined forces with Louis Oosthuizen from Foundation57, specifically the iPapa57 Feeding the Children programme that currently feeds between 460 and 480 children at 18 different Early Childhood Development Centres in the Mossel Bay Area.
The #feed2gether initiative aims to benefit more children as well as the community and society at large. We are raising funds to produce more of iPapa57’s specially formulated maize product that will feed many children between the ages of 3 and 5. Our vision is to expand the feeding programme to the Western, Eastern and Northern Cape regions.
