Hope Is Where the Heart Is. Being the change we need to see.
Making the World a Better Place for All
Africa Hoofprint Foundation wants to spread our message of hope and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team works tirelessly each day to contribute their part to the greater good.
Here at Africa Hoofprint Foundation, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits.
On 7 June 2017 our town, Plettenberg Bay, South Africa suffered severely by the recent Garden Route fire crises. On 10 June 2017, the people from Kranshoek, a local settlement, whom were also severely affected asked for help to move their horses and life stock, to another area where they would be safer from the roads as fences were destroyed, plus they had no grazing.
Lee Naude, the champion behind these initiatives, and activist for horses and their communities in South Africa, is a well-known personality in horse circles in South Africa and co-founder of EquineSA.
Lee has been working fervently and non-stop with no funds, with only the help of the community and well-doers, mostly local horse owners in the area, in crisis mode, for the survival of the community and its horses. Her long term vision and passion is to improve the conditions of both the Kranshoek horses and the Kranshoek community.
We started meeting with 5 of the children to see how we could help them to develop their Horsemanship skills and in getting to know them and from being a qualified Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Horse Specialist, realised that we will not be able to teach the kids unless their environment became positive, calm and assertive. The parents are excited about our vision to develop the next generation, especially since they have a proud Horse Heritage, and this herd directly assents from the original Griekwa people and their horses, which were lead down to Kranshoek, by their Profit, “Die Kneg” from the Western Cape.”
