At first glance, when seeing the village where Siyabonga lives, it is easy to assume that the people in his community are poor. They have no access to electricity or running water. Most of them don't own a car or even a bicycle. But as far as Siya is concerned, he has everything he needs - he has healthy soil to grow his food, clean air and water, and a community of people around him who support and care for each other. For him, this place is heaven. (5:40)
Thank you Siya, for reminding us about what really matters!
Filmed in Xolobeni, South Africa.
Green Renaissance is a tiny collective of passionate filmmakers (Michael and Justine) and one of our Grateful Changemakers. They live off-grid and dedicate their time to making films that they hope will inspire and share ideas.
To join them in their film-making journey visit Green Renaissance.
