Meet The Team
Nikki Pretorius (Founder) – With a corporate background and as a third generation philanthropist, Nikki entered the Non-profit sector in 2010 when assisting at the social services organisation where her Mom is the Chairperson. She fell in love with the industry and never looked back. She resigned and joined the ACVV Koeberg with a portfolio of Fundraising, Marketing, Project Management and Community development. It is here that she started her first preschool, Clever Kids Academy, for the ACVV Koeberg.
Whilst at the ACVV Koeberg, she met Carla Ferreira at SAVE Volunteering who started placing volunteers at her first preschool. Eventually Nikki joined SAVE Foundation as a Manager on condition that she can continue her work in Skandaalkamp. She left SAVE in October 2015 and now works full time in Wolwerivier with the assistance of the awesome SAVE volunteers and occasional interns!
In July 2016 she did her level 5 First Aid and now also looks after the health and well-being of the desperately neglected community.
2017 the Aksel memorial community clinic opened, serving the now over 5000 residents living in Wolwerivier. Dr David Cameron donates his time every Wednesday to see patients who require medical assistance, hospital referrals or prescription medication.
We intend to keep growing and adding more services to assist the growing community during this difficult time in South Africa.
