Hello or "Moloweni as in Xhosa - one of many official languages in South Africa.

I am Leander 18 years old and I come from a small town near Bielefeld in Germany. In September I will stay a year in Cape Town, South Africa, where I will do my voluntary ecological year.

I will be working in a Project called "Abalimi Bezekhaya" meaning "the Planters" in Xhosa. Abalimi supports local planters in the Townships Khayelitsha, Nyanga, Gugulethu and Philippi, which are still suffering from the consequences caused by Apartheid. To help these Townships Abalimi on the one hand provides jobs to fight unemployment and on the other hand helps to sell reasonably priced and locally produced vegetables. For more information visit the website below.

My work at Abalimi will be very versatile: from working on the field, to documentation and advertising. I will keep you updated on my blog on which I will be posting my experiences in Cape Town and thoughts about the year. You can find the link below.

My work will be totally voluntary. The donated money will go towards my organisation Sage Net which is making this possible for me within the "weltwärts" program. Sage Net will then pay for my expenses in Cape Town like food, pocket money, flights and so on.

I would be very grateful if you visit my blog or donate some money.

Thank you!
Leander
