Local Projects

Smile Foundation

Smile Foundation is a non-profit organisation which brings people together to provide expert surgical intervention for South African children living with facial anomalies. In 2010, our son was born with a facial anomaly called cleft lip and cleft palate. Since he was born in Sweden, a comprehensive plan was presented to us during the first days of his life. We know how much it means to see your child smile, not just on the outside, but from the inside too! Our goal is to raise R400.000 for a Smile Week where we can help 45 children smile again. If you want to be part of this journey, contact Therese Hansson 0760837575 or EFT to Nedbank, branch code 108914, account number 1087614198 and use the reference Smile.

The Santa Shoebox Project

The Santa Shoebox Project started in Cape Town in 2006. The main goal is to collect and distribute gifts at Christmas time for underprivileged children throughout South Africa and Namibia. Each box contains 8 mandatory items; a toothbrush and toothpaste, a soap and sponge, one item of clothing, writing material, some candy and a toy. With the help of our friends and family, in 2016 we were able to give 100 boxes to kids in our community.

Expedition Africa

Adventure Racing at its best! In May 2016, teams of 4 from all around the world travelled to the Garden route in the Western Cape in South Africa. Their activities included kayaking, mountain biking, trecking, canyoning and complete rope work sections in this epic adventure. Teams took anywhere from 3 days to 7 days to complete this event, traveling day and night pushing themselves to the edge of human endurance. Sedgefield and Knysna, two of the host towns in the Garden Route, was the ideal location for this once in a lifetime adventure. The unparalleled nature of this area, and conservation areas managed by Sanparks were the ultimate playground for these adventurers.

Simola Hillclimb

Head over Hills has been a proud sponsor of the Simola Hillclimb for two consecutive years, a fantastic race in Knysna. In 2016 Head over Hills sponsored the Thouca Mechanicos team.
