This year we are humbled to back an impact project designed by our colleague, Nelita from the accounting team. Nelita founded UK2SA, South African grassroots organization to give kids living in tough circumstances in Cape Town access to experiences in the natural world which they are excluded from in their everyday lives.
Born and raised in South Africa, Nelita knows from personal experience what growing up in poverty is like. Now determined to make a difference, she set up UK2SA to help kids back in her home country.
“These kids have little or no opportunity to get to school, they lack the basics and constantly live in survival mode – getting out into nature just isn’t possible for them,” Nelita says. “But every child has the capacity to do something amazing, every child deserves the chance to just be a kid, to spend time in nature and let their imaginations soar.”
