About us

The Du Preez family is the "front line" of Touching Africa Zambia, the team on ground level!

Though a small team, we reason that we’d rather be making a difference to 10 lives, than trying to reach a 100, and fail. Our names are Benjamin and Celesté Du Preez and we were born in South Africa. The basis of our desire to help Africa is founded on our Christian faith. We believe that we were born predestined to help the poor. Our children Ben, Louwnique, and Zoë, are all involved.

We are here because we want to be here. It is not something we do to make a living. Doing it is what we live for! Making a difference isn’t something we think we can accomplish, because we can’t. But hoping to make a difference, because we are willing to try, that is our motivation.
