Janet Thulisile NhlapoFounder/Director Flowers from Heaven Foundation, caregiver, trainer, actress, film producer/writer (starter)
Living my whole life in rural area, I know how tough life can be. However this didn’t stop me from fulfilling my dream to help other people; by sharing my story, to tell them that if there’s hope, there’s life! It’s all about believing in Yes I can…. I have been physically, sexually and emotionally abused for 15 years and went through a long period of healing after that. I discovered I was offered another chance in life and became a volunteer at Red Cross and later on as a caregiver. Because of my love for people I was recommended by my the patients to employ me, they even called me ‘Angel of the patients’. In the many years working as a caregiver, I also worked and are still working with the youth in my hometown.  We have made 3 (amateurish) films so far about all challenges they are facing in the communities and the solutions. It is my aim to make more propaganda about the (coming) films so that other people can learn from it! Also the gogo’s got my loving attention and I organize events every so often. My biggest talent is to make people of all ages feeling free when they come and seek for my help. To help them to stand up for themselves, to speak out the truth, to seek for help! Today and every day I am grateful to God to give me the opportunity to be one of the founders of the FFHF together with my sister friend Monique from Holland. With her love she is showing that black and white are the same, that we are one!
It is not too late to build up our country. Let’s smile and laugh together!
Monique van de Laar
Monique van de LaarFounder/Director Identiti & Flowers from Heaven Foundation, psychosocial therapist, trainer & Reiki master
As a human being, experienced from multiple areas of life, I share these experiences and learnings with others, also using my talents gained from being a qualified psychosocial therapist. This is done by offering psychosocial training and workshops, developed by myself. All is made to measure, since every person is unique! My greatest talent is to get the best out of people and to inspire and motivate them.
Why South Africa? I feel very much at home in South Africa and have been there many times so far; to do development aid, to do voluntary work with HIV/AIDS patients, to travel, to get to know the culture…As from January 2018, I am going to fulfil my dream to live in South Africa for several years and by sharing my knowledge and talents. It will be fantastic and I am looking forward to be working with our wonderful FFHF team ! My interest in people is huge, regardless of their age, background, religion, or culture. So far I have worked (in different ways) with people from many different cultures: Dutch – English – Muslim – Turkish – Somali – Curacao – Zulu – Dominican Republic….
WE HAVE ALL LEARNED FROM EACH OTHER! 
Zakhele (Isaac) Nala
Zakhele (Isaac) NalaDirector Flowers from Heaven Foundation, School Teacher, Actor
I am a hard working, passionate and dedicated man who is always willing to help other people.
Being a teacher at Amagcino Primary school gives me an opportunity to meet different kind of pupils coming from different homes: poor and rich. Over the years I’ve learned how children are experiencing the life that they are living, especially those who are from poor families. That made me realize how important it is to give them hope about life, as without hope there is no life! Together with the children, I am always trying to look for possibilities and solutions for challenges they come across at their homes. The same I do with youngsters who have lost hope with their lives and encourage them to believe in themselves and about the importance of education.
As we all know, it’s not that people can’t do things for themselves, but the reason behind it, is the lack of knowledge. By providing them with knowledge they can do things on their own!
Being a director of Flowers From Heaven Foundation will give me this opportunity to help many people of all ages to change their lives. I am looking forward to be working together with Jannet and Monique to launch FFHF and make the foundation grow and known !
