Our Vision

Our vision is to see the community become sustainable and thrive on their own terms and conditions.

khomani san community

For approximately 180 000 years the San or Bushmen have  been roaming around Southern Africa. They are the oldest first nation of the world. Anthropologically, they are one of the most studied people in the world, because their DNA and their lives tells us so much about our past as humans. Their history, their beliefs and the energy in which they carry themselves are absolutely fascinating.

The Khomani-San community are one of the Bushmen communities. In the modern world however, they face many transitional challenges. They have asked us for assistance and therefore by default asked for your assistance as they make this transition.

If you would like more information about the bushmen or the Khomani San community or you have questions about the project(s) in general;
