Kupa* [koo'pah] - *Swahili meaning: to give. We chose this name because we want to make a difference. We want to use a portion of the proceeds from this business to help various social and economic upliftment projects in our country.

One in every 1000 children in Africa are born with a facial deformity - surgery costs R5500 and only takes 45 minutes to give a child their smile back. But, without financial resources or access to corrective surgery, these children face a multitude of problems – besides the obvious facial deformity they also experience problems in speech development and have difficulty in eating and suffer from ear disease and dental problems.
One in 10 of these children do not reach their first birthday due to complications. To date “The Miles for Smiles initiative” has helped 1200 children. The impact is felt not just through the children that are healed but also their families.
The Miles for Smiles initiative has a fundamental aim: to inspire and challenge individuals to go out and make a difference in the lives
of those around them, by challenging themselves to achieve the impossible and by doing so, to make a difference.
