Going to the doctor in the city, buying groceries at the supermarket, driving the kids to kindergarten – for us, these are everyday things we can do comfortably. But not for the inhabitants of our South African farm Rooihoogte. Because the nearest town is 30 minutes away by car and there is no public transport. This means that when the people from the farm have to go to town for errands or doctor’s appointments, they spend a lot of money on taxis every time. It’s not always easy for the children of our employees to come to our free kindergarten at Rooihoogte – especially when heavy rainfall has turned the streets into muddy paths.
