The Boulders

The Boulders condo complex is located in Ballito, a small, bustling, modern village nestled between the rolling sugar cane hills and the warm Indian Ocean Coast of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. Situated just 30 minutes north of Durban, in the heart of the Dolphin Coast, The Boulders is on the beachfront. The condos are three bedroom, furnished in "beach house style" with stunning views over the warm Indian Ocean and “Granny's Pool"- a small, semi-private beach.

Fix breakfast with you condo mates, you’ll have choices like eggs, bacon, toast, pastries, cereal, yogurt, and fruit plus coffee, tea, or juice. Lunches will be bagged lunches of PB&J sandwiches, fruit, and chips. Dinner will be a catered buffet with a salad, usually chicken, beef, or pork entrees with plenty of potatoes, veggies, and dessert.

Build the Future

Build the Future aims to take as many kids off the street and enroll them in our preschools, so they can be safe, while learning and playing. They are striving to plant preschools in areas that are densely populated with local inhabitants, who are the poorest of the poor, but who’s children deserve an education and nourishment. They go where no-one else will, for the future of South Africa.
