Founder, Jean-Pierre Ardinois has a love for
Southern Africa which he discovered in 1994 when
visiting South Africa for the first time. Here he
met his penfriend Danville for the first time, from

the country but with a woman as well whom he sadly

the driving force of former South African president
Nelson Mandela. Countries share natural and cultural
