Before we get to the numbers and data, here is a little more about me!

Born and bred in Paarl, I wanted to contribute positively to our community, and therefore in 2018 I started The Village Guy as a passion project to spread inspiring stories and keeping the community informed about the happenings within Paarl and Wellington.

To do this I decided to interview and showcase the various individuals in our community who are doing amazing things by following their passion and dreams.  The purpose for this, is to create some hope and inspire the youth by showing them that anything is possible if you work hard at your dreams.
