Welcome Witbooi

2017, Ron Hering Awards

“I create a world of love and understanding through building bridges and removing barriers that separate people. ”

Welcome Witbooi is a life skills program specialist and motivational speaker to schools and underprivileged and disadvantaged diverse communities speaking to at risk young people and community members to make choices for a better life. He creates circles of sharing, where parents, fathers & sons can engage on issues of being a father and a man. When they engage, they go into dialogue about what it is like to acknowledge and respect woman, and deal with issues of sexism, gender based violence, and issues of LGBT people. The impact is to build understanding and open mindedness, inspiring the spirit of Ubuntu (I am because you are), and togetherness.
