Sonja Kruse, also known as ‘The uBuntu Girl’ is blessed with a well-developed sense of adventure and enormous faith in humanity. She walked and travelled across South Africa alone with just R100 in her pocket, collecting stories of Ubuntu (oneness). She became a travelling facilitator and connector of people, covering over 13 000km and returning
home profoundly changed. She is the author of ‘The uBuntu Girl’ – a book about this epic journey and of the remarkable encounters she had along the way. Her wish is that these stories will help us build social bridges and
equip the next generation with the tools to write the stories we want for our future. As well as being an international presenter and speaker, including stages in Europe and South America, she was a 2011 Feather Awards Finalist and currently also facilitates reading & writing workshops with FunDza Literacy Trust.
