THE SPEKBOOM FOUNDATION

OF  SOUTH AFRICA

As a lifetime resident of the Eastern Cape, Johan Swart has been deeply moved and inspired by the fact that something can be done to uplift communities, rehabilitate land and contribute towards the environment through the Spekboom. He has taken upon himself as a self-employed butcher to work towards an achievable goal in restoring the environment while at the same time contribute to much needed human dignity within the rural regions of the Sundays River. Although his sights are not limited to the Sundays River region, Johan sees this project as the very first of many to come whereby, ultimately a whole network of participants throughout our country, continent and world get the opportunity to contribute towards our world in more ways than one. The mere thought of gazing over a township with Spekboom in full purple or pink bloom in a once dry and barren location is a certain motivation for any individual to start up a project of this magnitude.
