Carla Ferreira - Founder of SAVE Foundation, SAVE Volunteering, Saltycrax Adventures, Saltycrax Backpackers
I own Saltycrax Backpackers and Saltycrax Adventures, and made the massive decision to start this endeavor at just 21 years old. This was the first backpackers in Tableview and one of only three 5-star backpackers in the country. The business proved to be successful from the beginning and I wanted to do more for my community. In 2007 I founded SAVE Foundation, a non-profit organization that runs various humanitarian projects focusing on education, sport and skills development in the townships of Cape Town. I’ve also created SAVE Volunteering, an organization that pairs local and international volunteers with humanitarian and conservation projects throughout Africa. I have the greatest love for people, travel and cultures and am honored to have served on numerous tourism boards and received numerous awards for my dedication to my community. I have also been a Police Reservist for over 10 years.
