Please tell us something else about yourself.
Everyone has a story in life just as we have hopes dreams and aspirations. My story is not entirely unique, myriads have gone before me and myriads will come after me, my only hope is that I leave a legacy behind that is there for future generations to learn from. I come from a little country called Zimbabwe, I’m sure you have heard it, our President is/was in the news often enough, not to mention his policy’s and politics, my family was one that lost everything due to his ‘land reform act’ and resulted in us having to start all over again from scratch.

From the age of 21 to 30 I have worked and lived in many countries, seen poverty, desperation and gratitude that would humiliate most into rethinking how lucky they are when they think that they have nothing. I have cleared minefields in Africa and the Middle East and know first-hand what it’s like giving land back to people that were desperate for it, that they could use it to put food in their family’s mouths.

I know that my calling in life is to help people that can’t help themselves. My aim is to start up a 2Ha piece of land that I have bought in the Philippines and develop it into a AP system that can be mirrored by people with little or no understanding of AP (as I am now) and to utilise any profits I make in my own AP endeavours to help in financing their AP set ups.

All too often we are not satisfied with what we have, we think we need bigger or better when in reality, we need so little to be happy.
