Dr Guy Stubbs (Executive Director and founder)
Social Development/Project Management/NGOs
Through the ages, we have referred to people with Guy’s passion and vision as missionaries, change agents, disrupters, humanitarians, crusaders, champions and other titles. Guy’s mission in life is to understand poverty and to build sustainable models to break the bonds of poverty.
He has been working in the social development sector since 1989 when, while photographing the atrocities of Apartheid, he realised that he wanted to make a personal difference in life. He started then in his photography, to not only depict the reality of poverty and subjugation but began to show that there was also hope to be found in a fallen world.
After studying and working as a social development photographer in Africa, South Asia, Australia, Europe and North America for over 14 years, and winning awards, holding numerous exhibitions, having photographs published internationally, raising funding, and calling people to action; Guy initiated the Southern Drakensberg Transfrontier Park and Tenahead Lodge on the border between Lesotho and the Eastern Cape, which is now the flagship lodge for River Hotels Group.
In 2007 Guy felt called to use what he had learnt about social development to actively get involved in alleviating poverty in South Africa. Learning from failures and successes, he progressed from strength to strength. From the first project in the Western Cape in 2008 where some of the families are still active today, to Die Heuning Pot project in the Northern Cape where 25 families are still keeping honeybees, to Naked Honey Farms in Mpumalanga where 50 families still benefit from the business to the Sappi Honey Project in KwaZulu Natal where 1,600 families were trained in Social Enablement as Mission, to ChildVision where ECD Entrepreneurs are being taught to positively impact on about 1,000 vulnerable children annually.
Guy studied towards a Christian MBA, an Honours in Theology and wrote about his model called Social Enablement as Mission in his PhD thesis on Integral Mission. After he completed his PhD in 2019, he decided to change the name of the Trust that he formed from African Beekeeper Trust to Khanyisani, so it could be used as a vehicle for positive transformation of those in need in his beloved South Africa.
