Hello my fellow Couch Surfers!!!

My name is Nazeem and I used to work with SHAWCO - the Students' Health & Welfare Centres Organization, based at the University of Cape Town. The website is www.shawco.org. It's an awesome and very well established volunteer organization with many projects to help the kids and people in the townships and they even have organized shuttle drivers to pick up the volunteers, drop them off at the community centers, and bring them back safely to the University.

What's cool is that you don't have to be a university student to participate in this project. Although I'm no longer working there, I still have contacts so if you wanna get involved drop me a line or just go to www.shawco.org.

I'm a Fitness Professional by the way and I'm 32 and enjoy making new friends from the CS community!! You can find me on Facebook on www.facebook.com/vivadiebokke
