Vanderful / Seeds of hope across Africa


Vanderful 2020

Paused due to pandemic

Like much of the world, Vanderful has been paused for this year. As our movement has been restricted and we’re unable to encourage people to gather; we have been supporting those ‘seeds’ we planted in 2019, by providing materials or tools to those we previously mentored.

Vanderful 2019

Expressive Arts and Surf Craftsmanship

Over 2019 we implemented our workshops in different countries in Southern Africa.

Vanderful opens up opportunities to children, giving them ‘the chance to play’ in a variety of ways.

Play is vital to all children’s health and wellbeing. Our fun but educational workshops, can positively transform lives. Participants learn a whole range of skills that support psychological, creative, and physical development.

“Play is the highest form of research” ~ Albert Einstein

Seeds of Hope ODV

Volunteer Organisation

Vanderful is the first project of the ‘Seeds of Hope’ Volunteer organisation. We intiated this in attempt to share skills, opportunities and experiences with children from marganilised areas of society.

Our team promotes collaboration and partnership; we are happy to welcome others who would be interested in getting involved in our workshops, or bring a fresh idea to the table!


As everyone knows projects like ours, although our time and committment is volunteered, things still cost money.

The funds we have previously raised were put towards; materials for the workshops such as wood and tools, our visas, fuel to get us from place to place and safety equipment.

We have offset our Carbon footprint for each journey that we made.

Collaborators & Sponsors

We have been very fortunate to have some great companies supporting our projects, without them, we certainly wouldn’t be able to reach the children whom we work with.

If you are interested in getting involved with Vanderful, we would love to hear from you.
