We were once again pleased to gather the elea community for our annual elea Philanthropic Investors’ Circle event.


Our annual event brings together impact entrepreneurs, philanthropic investors, and friends of elea, as well as select thought leaders. It is an occasion for them to share perspectives on the role of entrepreneurship in the fight against poverty.

Four elea entrepreneurs, Diana, Dominik, Megha, and Usman, shared their work and energized the room. They discussed how their innovative ventures are creating transformative change, gave insights into how they have navigated through the recent period of extreme uncertainty, and demonstrated how entrepreneurial approaches are a powerful way forward.

We would like to thank all participants for a great evening and all our philanthropic investors without whom our work would not be possible.

From our Partner’s desk...

Dominik Collenberg and Gus Le Breton fight absolute poverty by realizing the unused potential of the baobab fruits in Zimbabwe.


Driven by true entrepreneurial spirit, Dominik and Gus founded B’Ayoba, which links smallholder farmers in Zimbabwe with baobab customers around the world. Despite difficult economic circumstances, they saw an opportunity where others did not. Today, B’Ayoba collaborates with almost 4’000 smallholder farmers on an annual basis who generate much-needed additional income by collecting the wild baobab fruits and selling them to B’Ayoba.

On their journey, Dominik and Gus relied not only on their entrepreneurial spirit and business acumen but also on trustworthy partners and investors such as DEG and elea. At the center of elea’s approach is the creation of a close partnership of equals between entrepreneurs and elea that is sustained by an extensive basis of trust over several years.

Woohoooooo! Amina ruled the road at Two Oceans!! Now back in Harare celebrating her victory with friends and loving HIFA, she took time to share her story with us. We love you Amina!! We're so proud to have gone on this journey with you. Congratulations!!

"….Two Oceans….Your certainly dig deep!!!

Even though this was my third time going for the Ultra Two Oceans Marathon, my anxiety, nerves were beyond ordinary. I guess because I knew what task was ahead and my training had not been as smooth as I would have liked.

The big day finally arrived, so much goes through your mind!! What a relief when as I was finding my way to the starting line I heard my name loud!... “Amina” I turned around and there was Julie Hovercraft and Cynthia Munemo smiling, hugging and reassuring me that: “ You have got this!”

So when the gun went, I knew this is it! I took off with one goal in mind, to get to the finish line. My strategy was to get to Chapman’s Peak at a slightly faster pace, take a slower pace up Chapman, pick up my pace after the peak, then a slow pace up Constantia Nek and pick up pace to the finish line. It worked beautifully for me. I manage to finish within the cut off and I got my Blue Medal. I became this warrior chasing my goal, as my friend said, “Every run requires a different version of you! So true! I met awesome runners along the way that encouraged me to keep on going, that we would make it, and in turn I also encouraged fellow runners along the way, which actually really reaffirmed my own certainty that I could do it!

As I ran, I kept reminding myself how lucky I was that I could do this, of all the motivational messages from our club at HAC and runners at home that could not make it. As I entered the stadium and heard the screams and cheers from the crowd and friends, I felt as if I had won the race and finished strong. It’s just amazing the adrenalin, the energy you feel—you forget all the pain you went through and when that Medal is put around your neck, you can only smile!!!

So if you thinking of entering Two Oceans, just know “You got this!

Thank you so much to African Natural for all the support and products that help me build the endurance and a strong body! Amina"

Our girl Julie kicked much butt at Two Oceans!! Now back in Harare celebrating her recent birthday and recovering from the world's most beautiful ultra marathon, she found time to share her thoughts with us. CONGRATULATIONS JULIE!! You inspire us every day. Thank you for sharing your Two Oceans story with us all. XX

"My birthday today and two weeks or so since my Two Oceans run. A time for reflection. The aches and pains of running 56km are starting to fade but the memories remain fresh. How was it, could I have done any more or done anything differently?

I finished in a time of 6h02. Just two minutes after the cutoff time for a bronze medal but 58 minutes before the final cutoff of the run. So in some respects a personal disappointment because I was aiming for bronze time of under six hours but on the other hand, according to results published, I finished halfway in the field of runners. More than 8000 runners finished and I was finisher 4452. So in that respect I am pretty happy.

The race day was hot and windy. Even a very early start in the darkness of early morning is not much help when it's going to be a scorcher. Along the route I was fantasizing about swimming in the sea when done. Nutrition wise I had my B’Ayoba sweeties as tried out and tested on earlier runs. That worked out so well and I was so pleased with this as they are not sickly sweet or sticky so I don't get any thirstier than expected. I drank loads of water and sucked the sweeties all along the way. Funnily enough the part of the run where I felt strongest was after the marathon mark of 42km. With another 14km to go and a major hill to climb in the form of Constantia Nek, this was actually the part of the race where I felt I could "fly" and my running buddy, Tara and I, made really good time. We were passing loads of other people who had slowed down to a walk or shuffle. This was in huge part down to energy from sensible race fueling. So, I embrace this positive aspect of my run.

This was my fourth run. Would I do it again? Definitely. That bronze is mine next year!"

We had such a blast manning the Africa Natural water point at the Roger Brackley half marathon on Sunday! Well done to all the runners!

The countdown to Two Oceans has begun!! Julie shares her thoughts on her last long run before the big day:

"Less than two weeks to go until the run. Last week of the school term. A busy week packing and sorting out bits and bobs before we leave for Cape Town. Luckily for me the running part is done, there's nothing more to do than to stay healthy and injury free – avoiding supermarket trolleys and heavy footed children – until race day.

I did my last long run today, the Roger Brackley half marathon. It was a winding 21km route through every major hill in Greystone Park so I took it slowly and took photographs along the route. The Africa Natural water point fueled me up with their awesome Superfood Sports Drink and Super Boost sweeties—both with the energy-boosting power of boabab. The sweeties in particular are now part of my race routine and I am feeling super confident they will see me through the ultra at Cape Town. Baobab is great for anti-cramping too, as it’s packed with magnesium, calcium and potassium.

I also tried out my new HAC club vest and felt good and looked smart. Lots of us going to Cape Town are wearing the vest and it's going to make it easy for our supporters to spot us amongst the 9000 other ultra runners and 15000 half marathon runners. We feel good on the inside and we look good on the outside. Race day ready!"

Julie shares her pragmatic approach to dealing with injuries on her journey to Two Oceans:

"A week closer to Two Oceans and a week with a bit of frustration in it. I went to the physio as I literally had a pain in my butt. Long story short: my back is weak and I need to strengthen it, stretch it and loosen it. My physiotherapist gave me the tools to do all three so the way forward looks great. Just one cloud on the horizon. Don't run hills.

Two Oceans is a challenge because of its 56km distance but also because of elevation gain of over 1400 meters over that distance. So ideally, I should train for this by running hills. My physio assured me that at this stage in my training the work is done and I have to take her word for it. She runs too so I know she knows her stuff. But, it is a bit of a wake up call and as I have asked for her advice I will take it. Yes, I will stretch, strengthen and loosen my back like she told me and yes, this is the difficult one, for now I will avoid the hills. And I will also be praying the powers that be, to help me along a little bit.

In the meantime, I do continue to run and on Sunday, I headed out for a lovely 12km flat run with fellow Two Oceans runners Cynthia and Martin. I have been running alone earlier in the week and it was great sharing the road and just enjoying ourselves out there. It was a beautiful Sunday morning and a most enjoyable run."
