Today you will spend the day experiencing the African philosophy of Ubuntu or what we call B Somebody with Love. This is an authentic and purely Positive Impact tour that has been specially designed for RY by our local favorite, Bukho. She is excited to take you on a journey of what her organisation ""B Somebody with Love"" does to create an impact and change in the South African food system, addressing issues such as unemployment, hunger and climate change.
On this fun day we spend our time on Sis Alakhe’s farm helping her to plant seedlings as well as preparing her harvest for the market, this is followed by a delicious traditional South African lunch prepared by Bukho herself with the fresh produce from the farmers.
We then will travel to “Ladles of Love"for the second half of the tour, where we will volunteer our time and help with their daily activities. These range from making sandwiches for the homeless to packaging food parcels that are distributed weekly to soup kitchens and homeless shelters around Cape Town.

fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Bukho took us in a township to water crops. A meaningful experience as water was not easy to find. It gave us the right perspective on why water is so precious. Thank you again Bukho!
Great morning helping distribute food at the Ladles of Love!! If u enjoy volunteering and knowing ur efforts r valued, sign up for this experience.
I loved this PI event and am glad that we got to do hands-on stuff at Ladles of Love and despite the rain in the days prior, I'm glad we still got to go to the farm to check it out.
If I ever return to SA, I will definitely give more of my time to both <3
Bukho's cooking is also amazing! Thank you, Bukho!
Bukho is really cool and charismatic, making it a fun and rewarding experience.
We planted red cabbage, broccoli, and lettuce at a community garden. Then helped out at Ladles of Love and had chakalaka with pap afterwards.
Firstly, Bukho is THE BOMB! Such high energy, such a great soul, just an awesome person to be around, who is genuinely wanting to give back to the community. Such a great way to help others! Gardening, cleaning, cooking, with great company and an awesome, local meal in the middle too, what's not to love! And honestly, great way to bond with other remote year peeps who also love to give back!
