The Khoi-San are the indigenous first people of Africa. For thousands of years they walked lightly throughout Southern Africa leaving beautiful rock paintings and a legacy of right relationship with Nature. Although they demonstrated true sustainability and good governance of earth’s precious resources, they have been one of the most persecuted, disenfranchised and disempowered cultures in human history. The discrimination continues to this day and most of those with Khoi-San ancestry live in marginalized communities with little access to resource.  

In Khoi-San culture a wealthy man is one who has many relationships and the true leaders are those who give the most. Chief Stephen Fritz, of the South Peninsula Khoi Council in Ocean View lives up to this definition of a wealthy leader. He is known as Xoma, meaning son of the soil

Chief Stephen recognizes that we are facing a global crisis which threatens the extinction of both indigenous knowledge and life on earth. He believes it is crucial to ensure that the children in his community do not forget their origin, their heritage or their sustainable Khoi ways.

For years, over the festive season, Chief Stephen has provided financial support to many of the poorest families in his community, ensuring that they too are able to celebrate. This year, Chief Stephen has taken up an opportunity offered by Global White Lion Protection Trust to participate in The White Lion Leadership™ Academy. The Academy trains emerging and established leaders in the 13 Laws of LionHearted Leadership. LionHeartedness is that fearlessness that comes from Love and Respect for Nature which allow one to transform the human world so that it is in alignment with the natural world. Empowered with these skills, Chief Stephen will be unstoppable in his quest for earth and social justice.

However, whilst in training, he has not been able to raise the necessary funds to support his community over this festive season. Those families in Ocean View who have come to rely on him remain in great need of help.

Please help Chief Stephen to fully benefit from the amazing opportunity offered by the Global White Lion Protection Trust by knowing that people around the world will participate in supporting his community in his absence.

The Trust is helping set up this Go-Fund-Me page in order to raise by December 20th the amount of $5000 (R70’000.00)
