In 2010, Andy (co-founder of Olieve & Olie) visited South Africa for a month to help build houses with an organisation called Ten Thousand Homes. Moved by the devastating poverty he witnessed whilst there, he and group of friends set up an Australian charity called Gardens of Hope Foundation.
The charity helps poverty-stricken communities in Rural South Africa through feeding programs, child sponsorship, business loans and spiritual support. Gardens of Hope is solely run by volunteers, where 90% of tax deductable donations go straight to those in need.
