Making a difference in rural communities

In 2010 the Forest Nature Spa received funding to train 15 women from the local community in bodywork.  Each of these women have walked away with a new found skill that they can use anywhere.  6 women remained with the Forest Nature Spa and have taken their training to a level of excellence. Not only do they have a skill that allows them to earn more than previously possible, but they have grown as individuals allowing them to be an inspiration to their children and leaders in their own right.

This pilot initial training program has been a huge success.  We are now ready to roll-out training to new rural locations around South Africa.  The Forest Nature Spa is working closely with safari lodges and other spas to guarantee employment when training is complete.  The initial core group of trained ladies will now be experienced enough to pass on their training to a further group. 

If you have experienced the powerful hands of these women and you wish to give to further training, please e-mail Louise on or call her on +27 836757161
