 About our Mascot - Ms Jacqui

Ms Jacqui is a member of the African penguin family who setup home in 1985 at the beautiful cove called Foxybeach, Boulders near Cape Point . They have become an endangered species largely through human activities. For more information click here.

She is a Fun, fab and friendly Capetonian and is very passionate about this city as most Capetonians are!

For African Voluntourism she symbolises our passion for the people, flora and fauna of the Cape. She serves as a reminder to all to be considerate of all the species that share and travel with us on this planet. She also encourages our species to remember we are all inter-connected, to think before we act and to consider how our actions affect others.

She wants you to make choices that serve the planet and doesn’t exploit people and so she endorses our social entrepreneurial venture that supports local emerging entrepreneurs, the many highly skilled crafters and Fair Trade products.

She is very proud of our product range label ”Foxybeach Originals" - given that its named after her hometown.

She will be our unofficial tour guide for FIFA 2010 World Cup and she supports the “Live it, love it, Louder” campaign of this city!.... Watch this space.

She is seen here holding an instrument, a trumpet of sorts, called a vuvuzela.

It’s seen by some as a descendant of the kudu horn - ixilongo in isiXhosa, mhalamhala in Tshivenda - blown to summon African villagers to meetings. Later versions were made of tin. Today it is often seen at South African football matches.

It's the noise-making trumpet of South African football fans, and it's come to symbolise the sport in the country.
