Nigel Savel, Founder

Strandfontein, near Cape Town
Strandfontein Pavilion Corner of Baden Powell Drive, Strandfontein Rd, Strandfontein, Cape Town, 7798, South Africa

What is the project about?

In 2013, Nigel Savel and his wife Sher'Neil founded the non-profit organization 9Miles Project in Cape Town. Since then, they and their team have been helping to bring children from impoverished backgrounds, to show them new perspectives in order to keep them away from drugs and crime and to give them the opportunity for a better life.

Surfing plays a major role in bringing children closer to discipline, life experiences and independence. In addition to the sporting aspect, the project also teaches children manual skills, including building surfboards.

Thanks to the 9 Miles Project, children from the area have a safe place where they can experience a sense of community.

What is the goal of the project?

The aim is to create sustainable opportunities for high-risk youth from impoverished townships and coastal communities by providing additional education, literacy courses, courses, life experiences and leadership training, including sports (especially surfing), and to motivate, promote, equip and strengthen them.

Who benefits from it?

Children from Khayelitsha Township, Mitchells Plains

What are the challenges?

The areas in which children grow up are characterized by poverty, and the associated hunger, crime and drugs.

Welchen Beitrag leistet Ajimba?

Wir stehen im direkten Kontakt mit dem Team von 9Miles Project. Dadurch besteht für uns die Möglichkeit unseren Gästen einen Besuch der Community zu organisieren. Durch die Zusammenarbeit mit dem landesübergreifenden Hilfsprojekt Labdoo konnten schon einige Laptops dem Team von 9Miles Projekt zur Verfügung gestellt werden.

Ist ein Besuch für Ajimba-Gäste möglich?

Ja, es ist möglich das Pavillon am Strand auf einen Tee/Kaffee und gemeinsamen Strandaktivitäten, wie Surfen, zu besuchen. Eine vorherige Absprache ist erforderlich, um der Organisation eine Vorlaufszeit von mindestens 2 Wochen zu ermöglichen. Ein Besuch ist leider an Freitag Nachmittagen, Wochenenden sowie auch in den Ferien nicht möglich. Kosten entstehen für Sie, außer eventuellen Transferkosten, nicht. Natürlich würde sich die Community über eine kleine Spende (in Höhe von ca. 5€) sehr freuen.
