What you'll do

We will go beyond the norm of travel and visit impoverished communities in the Cape Town metropole near a suburb called Somerset West (Helderberg area), Western Cape. We will start at Halli Trust office, where you will have an info session on Halli Trust and the work we do in the communities. Should there be a needlework class at that time, you will see their handmade items, interact and have the opportunity to ask questions. Your host Heidi will then take you via the Halli Bus to a church in Zola that was built by Halli Trust founder Martin Naude. You will then visit some of the local homes in the community where you will go inside and interact with the children and adults, experience the love, their inspirational stories and ask questions. You will drive through Asanda Village (Zola), Nomzamo and Lwandle. Thereafter we will travel to Smartie Town, in Macassar where you will interact with the children and adults that we are currently working with in our Halli projects. We will also visit homes there, and you will have the opportunity to walk around in the community, interact with animals, children and adults in the community. You will also see the hall/church that Martin built in Smartie Town. You will experience the real life of people in the community, see the hardships they face but also hear the wonderful stories of hope.
Other things to note
Please bring comfortable clothes and shoes, sunscreen and a smile :-). Transport can be arranged

I'm Heidi the CEO of Halli Trust. My heart is to make an immeasurable difference in the communities through education and awareness creation. I became CEO of Halli Trust at the age of 42. I was born and raised in Namibia. Halli Trust was established on 17 September 2010 by my family. Martin Naude, (My husband) founder of Halli Trust was inspired and with a grateful heart suggested we open an NPO after my dad left us an inheritance. The intention was to make a difference in lives by moving hearts and changing lives forever. Since then we started with various educational talks with our Mascot, we assist the communities in their physical and emotional needs for a short period, we work with children to become leaders, we teach woman through our needlework project to learn new skills and we also teach owners in the communities animal care.

Heidi is very passionate about helping in these communities and helped us understand the obstacles they face. We learned about her non-profit and their efforts as well as tour some of the townships, meeting people and interacting with the kids along the way. This was one of the most memorable and impactful parts of my trip - I highly recommend this to anyone traveling to Cape Town.

This is a day to be forever remembered. Heidi does an amazing work in the communities and it's very special to see that through the eyes of her work partners who live in them. A must-do if you feel like seeing a different reality in a respectful way. Awesome experience!
