Twenty-one year old Yoni Marmorstein, from Canada, is on a mission. Despite his youth, Yoni is a childcare professional, managing a city run youth facility and camp in Vancouver. After reading in his local paper about H4H’s incredible action by Rick Gill in Canada to support H4H efforts in Africa, Yoni was inspired to come and meet founder Mark Crandall during his visit to Vancouver at the end of last year. Mark was impressed with Yoni’s dream to come to Africa to help kids and see what is happening in this part of the world.
Two months later, continuing on to Africa after a life changing experience during his Birthright trip to Israel, Yoni dove deep into the H4H action in Cape Town. But Mark had an extra secret mission for Yoni. As a writer and aspiring moviemaker, Mark saw the value of seeing the organization through “Yoni’s eyes” and sent the young man by plane to Zimbabwe for yet another life changing experience.
Yoni was immersed for 3 days into H4H Zimbabwe before getting on the Cool Bus with 10 H4H All Stars for their epic journey south to Cape Town, travelling 2182 km’s/1356 miles in the former East Hampton, NY little yellow school bus!
The experience of seeing many faces of the organization across the globe, meeting the incredible coaches who work day in and day out to better their communities, playing with kids who flock to their courts, and traveling the length of southern Africa for the first international All Star training, can all be seen in Yoni’s movie, soon to be a YouTube sensation!
