- The largest port in Africa and the biggest hospital in the world

South Africa will move into the spotlight over the course of the next two years. It is scheduled to host the 2010 Soccer world Cup – the single biggest sports event on earth.
We realize that there is a chance that the World Cup might not even take place in South Africa in 2010. Supposedly the FIFA is already working on a plan B.
Isn’t this what always happens to Africa? Whenever there is some hope it gets destroyed and eventually we end up with some sort of disaster?
WE ARE IN
We are willing to take a chance. We think everyone has much to gain from sending a positive signal now.
Many people (inluding sponsors) are staying on the sidelines and want to see what happens. We believe that whoever is ready to show support now has a lot to gain in the long run. We are prepared to deal with setbacks and won’t be discouraged easily. People will be skeptical and afraid when they hear about our project.
Regardless of all the reasons not to move on with South Africa Project we have made up our mind: We are looking to create a success story and offering you to join it.
Learn more about what we have in mind for the next years.
