BallaAfrica was registered as a Manx charity in June 2008 by Johan Loubser with the help of both staff and students from Ballakermeen High School, Douglas, Isle of Man.
Johan worked with malnourished children in the area of Bronkhorstspruit, near Pretoria, South Africa many years ago.The sad impressions of these children have been imprinted in his memory.When Johan arrived on the Isle of Man, he started the charity with the hope of making a difference in the lives of some of these children.
BallaAfrica's aim is to raise money on the Isle of Man to establish a community centre for providing food, medication, education and care to orphaned AIDS children and other poor people in the area of Pretoria West, South Africa.
