LE ROUX PEPLER
CHAIRPERSON, UNIVERSITIES & CHARITIES

An honour and a privilege are the first words that come to mind when I think about being on the Vet Books for Africa committee. Being granted the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many other people can only be described as a feeling of immense joy! Opportunities like these don’t cross your road every day and I am excited to grab this one with both hands (and feet) and build on the successes of all the previous committees.

I am eternally grateful to be part of a team distributing the most valuable treasure in Africa: Hope for the future. I truly believe that through our acts, we can start the ripple effect of inspiring others to also make a difference the way we are planning to make.

Being on such a committee gives me the opportunity to help other students to also reach their dream to become a vet. It has always made me smile to see a smile on someone else’s face. This is exactly the purpose of vetbooks -TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE by enriching fellow vet student’s lives by providing them with the necessary study material to become good veterinarians one day. I believe that this trip through Africa will broaden my vision in life and will be a life changing experience.

To study veterinary science is an opportunity very few are granted. I am extremely passionate about veterinary science and conservation and thus enriching the life of other students in Africa that share the same passions and visions is a dream come true for me. I am looking forward to working with a great committee and the journey through Africa.

ROUTES & ITINERARY

My prayer and dream is to one day be a veterinarian who makes a difference in the lives of animals and people alike. I have never come across a mission which encapsulates this dream better than that of Vet Books for Africa. To be a small part of a big adventure with an even bigger mission – to give something back to this incredible continent we live on, is an honour and an opportunity I was born
ready to run with!

I have always had a love for conservation and it is an honor to be a part of a group of students that will contribute to the conservation of Africa. Being able to help people that are in need has always been a goal in my life. VetBooks has given me the opportunity to fulfil my dreams of helping not only people but also our beautiful continent. I am so grateful to be apart of a team that has already achieved so much in the past year and that still has so much more to come!
