Hi, I'm Kate!

"The body says what words cannot.."
I grew up in South Africa between a little beach community and my Grandad's pineapple farm. A farm girl at heart turned city dweller in Perth, I go back to Africa at every possible moment - it is by far my most favourite place in the world. The people, culture and landscapes are all so incredible.
I am an outdoorsy person and feel like there is so much beauty in the world, it would be a waste to not go out and see it. To capture it. Document it and its people. So that's what I do.

Statistics show that 1 billion people live in extreme poverty. It may seem small but as Mandela quoted this passage from Marianne Williamson in the movie Invictus it struck a cord
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. ....As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
ThankYou is the kind of enterprise I wish I had the guts and determination to build. They commit 100% of profits to ending global poverty. They now not only fund water projects but sanitation and food products worldwide. One of my favourite parts is they let you 'Track Your Impact' so you can see exactly which project the product you purchase is going towards.
Compassion is a Child Sponsorship project with the aim to release children from poverty, give them an education and enrich them to be employed and become leaders in their communities. I sponsor a little hillside community of Fetra in Ethiopia via a little boy named Abraham. I picked Abraham many years ago not
