What We Do
Jabulani A Hoy is a group of people and companies involved in the construction and engineering industry who together provide support in a variety of ways to support the efforts of Alex Wallace and the Jabulani Charity.
The idea for the group began when my daughter returned from a school trip to South Africa, organised by Alex in 2012. She came home with a very simple but fundamental change to her outlook, and that was, the realisation of how much we can have and not be happy and how little others can have and be very happy.
The idea of the first climb was inspired by that change, and myself realising that we only need an idea ,followed by a decision and commitment and with little steps we can reach great heights and enjoy ourselves along the way.
I am fortunate to working in an industry and with people who have similar ideas in both work and life approaches so it didn’t take much persuading to get our core group started.
Our goal is to provide a sustainable and practical funding platform to support the year on year project needs of the Jabulani Project and the People and Communites it serves.
