Europe

Vision AfriKa Europe is based in the Netherlands and exists to contribute to the maintenance, development and improvement of the Vision AfriKa programmes.

We organise events to attract sponsors and individual donors to help us provide a stable income for the running of the facilities in South Africa.

One-off or regular financial contributions are always welcome - see further details below.

If you are interested in something a bit more social and interactive, you can join our Visionary Club where you will get to enjoy typical South African activities, attend parties or go to galleries in addition to supporting Vision AfriKa with your membership fee. See below for more details.

Join the Visionary Club Europe
The Visionary Club Europe is a lively network of individual benefactors who want to impact the lives of young South Africans and support Vision AfriKa in inspiring dreams!

As a member of the Visionary Club you are an ambassador of Vision AfriKa (Europe). The network helps to generate funds for Vision AfriKa and allows you to meet like-minded (young) professionals. Activities range from South African wine tastings to Stellenbosch-inspired art selling; and from a pub quiz to ‘braai’.

You become a member by donating €50 (or more) per year. With the membership fee you contribute directly to the South African organisation and its programmes.

If you wish to become a Visionary Club member, please complete our registration form and return to Stichting Vision AfriKa Europe, Mecklenburglaan 18, 3062 BK Rotterdam, or email to [email protected]
