Since January 2005, Nancy has been the educator for Partners in Botho Project (an NGO founded by Nancy and Françoise Horenburg) for the children of Mokatse/Modipane villages where Nancy and Françoise are living. Twice a week, Nancy gives two hours of her time. For the first hour, the kids are free to play with whatever toys and games are on hand: footballs, tennis, puzzles, skipping ropes, badminton, ping pong, paper and colouring pencils and colouring books, reading books, etc. For the next hour, the class is formal, with the kids learning anything from martial arts such as Karate, Kung fu and Capoeira, to yoga, Capacitar, art and crafts, singing, dancing, and music. Other activities happen over a Saturday morning or over the once or twice a year Camp. There they learn the above activities and also life skills, cooking, and other types of games and potential development activities.
In addition, Nancy has passion and practical knowledge in life-skills, fitness, self-care, self-sufficiency, sustainability, vegetarian and vegan cooking, raw cuisine, wood work, gardening, camping, animal care, protection of the environment/care of the planet, healthy and simple nutrition, self-sufficiency in learning, and living a simple holistic harmonious life.
Nancy’s latest passion is chocolate, the real chocolate, made with organic cacao butter, cacao paste, organic sugar, a pinch of vanilla and Himalayan salt, and a sprinkle of passion and love. Find her delicious creations at her regular stall at the Bull and Bush Farmers Market every last Saturday of the month, and at the Phakalane Pop-Up Market every first Saturday of the month. You’ll also get a taste of kale chips, breads made with organic stoneground flour, cookies, vegan nut cheese, kombucha, fresh aloe drinks, and more.

Ultimately, Nancy aspires to live a life of harmony (with chocolate…:-)); physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually; all the while living to the tune of Earth’s song and that of her own heart and soul. <3
