We are bringing self defense and nutrition education to rural villages in northern South Africa. Know that this is DIRECT ACTION TO PEOPLE IN SERIOUS NEED with great, highly trained instructors. Our work is an opportunity to become a sustainable program with life saving potential, but it cannot happen without your support!

We are using Patreon to support our ongoing program costs. Your monthly contribution pays for our local translators, class supplies, transportation among the villages, and personal costs such as daily food and travel insurance. 

We are keeping this Patreon funding open only while our teaching programs are active. We intend to stay in this community at this level of service for at least one year, but we will update our contributors with any changes that we incur. 

Together we can make the world a better place. Help us do the work that you want to see out there. Remember - what may seem like a small donation can make a huge difference to someone else!

We need Sepedi-English translators to communicate fully with the community center caregivers and village elders. We are paying our translators a living wage of 3000 Rand per month to work with us.
