Please help and support Roger raise $45 000! In aid of his one-man mission. To rescue many young, innocent and really talented lives. Currently, he is using his government disability grant of about $120 each month. To fund his mission to save this community and its children.


The truth about the lives of most of the children Cape Town South Africa. Also why these children are easy prey for gangsters to use them as gangsters, drug runners, in prostitution and most dangerously as hitmen. 

  • Some of them grow up in broken homes. Where one or both parents are drug addicts or related to gangs.
  • Some get abandoned at a very tough age. Leaving them to be raised by grandparents or other family members. 
  • Because of their environment and really poor upbringing. They see gangsters as role models. They want a taste of that fancy lifestyle that is being projected onto them. 
  • Gang member offers them name brand clothing or some sort of fancy tech device. In change, they sell their soul to the devil and do his will.
  • If they do not do as they are told they were badly beaten and sometimes evens kill. Sometimes they get told that gang members will go to their house and kill their families
  • What makes them the perfect soldier to these gangsters. Minors in South Africa seldom gets prosecuted or even see the inside of a courtroom.
  • According to my research. The youngest hitman in the Western Cape is a 9-year-old boy


Some facts about Roger


 Roger might have had a rough start to most of his life. And not able to do the jobs he once enjoyed doing. From epilepsy, being bullying, raped, alcohol and drug abuse. He truly hated the world. But at the same time, he wanted it’s acceptance and still wanted to love it. Which blew up in his face thousands of times. Roger always had a warm, kind and loving heart. Although he made lots of mistakes and broke his family’s hearts. This came to end in 2016 when he took full responsibility for his life, past and promised never to go back. After sorting help in many different forms. From joining support groups and seeking professional help for his mental health. 

Roger stays strong to this day and has a love for this world that not many people in the situation ever get to see. He has vowed that as long as he's alive. He would not see any other human being, especially children go through what he did. He believes nobody has to do it on their own.

So please let’s support this young loving father reach his goal of $45 000. 


How funding will be allocated


  • $10 000 towards education as most of these children don’t go to school because they get bullied for not having the following. Some evens drop out of school at the age of 6 years old.
  • School uniforms
  • School shoes
  • Stationery


  • $15 000 will go towards farming/agricultural projects. Parents and youths will be taught on how to make a living of growing their own food and selling it. Projects will entitle the following. Profits made by the project will go towards growing the project and helping people to make some extra income.
  • Land to start the projects
  • Farming equipment 
  • Fencing
  • Manure or compost 
  • Seeds to grow vegetables 
  • Chickens for laying eggs


  • $ 10 000 Sporting programs. Health and fitness is a huge support in helping any child in need of growth and breaking the chains of the lifestyle they grow up in. Most of the kids on the Cape Flats have very special sporting talents. Unfortunately, it does not get explored. So they end up in drugs and gang activities
  • Sporting equipment 
  • Sport uniforms 
  • Coaching 
  • Membership fees when If needed 


  • $10 000 towards a transport vehicle. A vehicle will be a very important part of this project. It would be used to transport youths to special events like sporting competitions, selling of products in the markets and transport to school. I also want to start a project where I partner kids with senior citizens on pension day. They will help those seniors with shopping and collections of pension
