Moreover, these children who cannot afford such education, are given hope and a chance in life.  He believes that Shiloh understands the real meaning of Upliftment and has the answer to make a positive difference in a human being’s life, never to be the same again.  Retief has been passionately involved in Shiloh ever since, and he became a director on 18 August 2014.
