Summit with a difference:
making a difference in children’s lives

Through the power of story telling and connection.

It is important for us to celebrate connection through giving back. Also, to live out our purpose by serving those who are not a part of the online world, but connected with us as beautiful souls and therefore a part of our world.

We are hosting a special dress up Princess theme party for a selected group of girls; to uplift and inspire; not only in the online space but through celebrating them.

By doing this we are making a direct impact in their precious lives, who are in much need of hope and beautiful moments.

The special group of children we chose to host this for, is living in Worcester, Cape Town, South Africa. And our special Project Coordinator: Landy Steenkamp and the team in the community are ready to serve and celebrate them!

Our events key note speaker Nikki Rich, will be live streaming with the children, to talk to them about Dream Big Dreams and to remind them of their roles as Princesses in life.
