Volunteer Assistance by PUM

Video-Marketing expert & Videoproducer Jan van der Meer:
www.PUM.NL is fully sponsored by the Dutch Government. They have been active for 35 years in more than 70 countries, and is aimed at assisting SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises) in developing countries by sending them Senior Experts to help solve their technical, operational and managerial problems.
PUM is now ready to start at the border of South-Africa and Swaziland for Matsamo Cultural Village.

This announcement was made by Jan van der Meer from the Netherlands during a presentation at a Global Marketing Bootcamp in Pattaya Thailand for a big group of international Marketeers.

Van der Meer has been active on behalf of his own Voluntourism stimulation in several African Countries. Visited  several times Swaziland too. Thanks to volunteering with latest Video-Marketing techniques and producing a commercial song and YouTube clip for Swazi Indigenous Products in 2009 they are now one of the 25 winners of the 2012 Equator Prize, awarded by UNDP’s Equator Initiative to recognize and advance local sustainable development solutions for people, nature and resilient communities.

Jan van der Meer is also founder www.Global-DVC.orgwww.SkypeOrphanSchoolkids.org and www.Voluntourismtips.Blogspot.com  Connecting schools and teachers from Africa with SKYPE to schools and teachers in rest of world for education and support. Also producing clips for Organisations and Hotel offering local help. Search Google and Facebook for "Voluntourismtips"and "SkypeOrphanSchoolkids" for more links and info.

Now as senior PUM Video-Marketing Expert and coordinator Jan has been asked and eager to support Matsamo Cultural Village and Dance Group at the border of Swaziland and South Africa in getting more visitors and sponsors to support them.

Video-Marketing is at this moment the best to do this. No wonder Google bought for 1,5 billion dollars YouTube! People spent more time watching video's as reading pages filled with text. The production for Swazi Secrets got over 20.000 viewers and many likes! Their product is visible on many websites worldwide selling these products!

The PUM formula has proved its effectiveness worldwide over the years. If the SMEs are more efficient and more profitable it will be good for employment and thus good for the people of Matsamo Cultural Village, and that's what the efforts are all about, says Van der Meer, who is based in the Netherlands, but visits South Africa and Swaziland regularly for the past 15 years. Partly as Hotel Photographer for American Express Travel Brochures but in his private sparetime also as Videoproducer and Marketing advisor, educating schoolkids and teachers in Marketing themselves and helping poor rural women in Swaziland to sell their SwaziSecrets (Marula tree products). Search and find on YouTube the clips for SwaziSecrets.
