Little Wonders Educare Centre and Ackermans Community Outreach Program.
As part of Ackermans Community Outreach Program we are cleaning up a creche, Little Wonders Educare Centre in Kuilsriver.
Midas Paints Tygervalley received the following quote request: We want to paint the cement pathway black with white lines (like a road) and we are looking for a paint that is durable but also non-slip. The pathway is 60 cm wide and 16 metres in length.Please advise what paint you would recommend and the price.
For such a good cause, especially education. we decided as a team to assist in this wonderful project and donate or expertise and product.
The Ackermans’ Technology team will be working on the outside of the Little Wonders Educare centre.
The Ackermans Home team will be renovating the inside of the Little Wonders Educare Centre
A maple tree was planted on Friday and our Home team will be visiting Little Wonders Educare Centre on Wednesday to add some more love to the inside of the building.

Story
Tagline
Some people get tattoos, I got the scars...
Introduction
My main life goal is the spread of collective consciousness through thought, meditation, action and even business.

Born in South Africa, Cape Town under Apartheid. I got to experience the injustice of racism and saw the brute force of oppression.
I lived and went to Muizenberg Junior and High Schools. Conscripted into National Service directly after school at 17 years of age and became a Junior Leader (Gunnery Instructor).

After 2 years compulsory national service I attend Westlake Technical College in N2 Engineering Studies Electro-technology and completed my apprenticeship as a Industrial Refrigeration Technician. In this period skydived, travelled Southern Africa and was shipwrecked in Madagascar for 6 months.

I left to London to travel the world. I have completed several 6 month trips around Europe, Africa and South Africa. I completed PADI rescue diver in Dahab Egypt where I spent a few months diving and exploring the middle east.

I arrived in Australia the day after 911 and I have been here ever since. In this time I have studied, managed Sydney's tallest buildings, traveled extensively around Australia and ran my own successful business, Mabuzi PL.

Running ones own small business is the biggest challenge in ones life. You fulfill the functions of Business Development, OH&S, Marketing and Sales, driver, Owner, Designer, Operations and Manufacturing, handyman, Search Engine Optimisation Marketing, IT support and networks, Networking, Finance and Human Resources and friend. 
  
It is at Mabuzi PL where I found my passion for Search Engine Optimization Marketing. Mabuzi had to move due to fast growth from retail Bricks and Mortar to e-commerce on-line trade. In a very short space of time I had to manage the transition to on-line, build a website(with no experience) and learn the dark arts of Search Engine Optimization. 

End of 2013 was a sea change in my life and I find myself heading back to Africa 2014/2015 running an SEO business both for my awesome Aussie clients and new Southern African customers where I can chase my passion of African wildlife photography, field guiding for Australians, promoting small business and Websites for Africa (giving rural Africans a digital presence).

I bought paint, brushes, waterproofing and bitumen for floors from Midas Paints Tygervalley for my flat renovations and besides the great price, as a novice the advice was best I could receive for this small job, Bonus was the free delivery all the way to the deep south.
