Obviously a wondrously effective organisation. Small, but exquisite in every detail”

We have expanded our provision of clean water into rural villages in Zambia’s Luangwa Valley. 4 new wells brings safe water to 2,000 more villagers and reduces conflict between people and wildlife at shared water sources. A win-win situation for both people and wildlife.

We have extended our support to 4 communities that we partner with in Kenya, Zambia & Malawi to help provide food parcels, face coverings, soap for hand washing and hand santizer during the pandemic.
We have joined hands with Bawa Hope in Kenya to provide food parcels for artisans in Kibera slum to feed their families during the pandemic, and food parcels to Maasai women in Ewangan Village in the Masai Mara via our partner there SEMADEP. Also with Mnkhanya Community Resources Board in Zambia to provide face coverings, soap and hand sanitizer for wildlife scouts and staff, and with The Brown Munthali Foundation in Malawi to provide soap, food and hand-washing basins for the orphaned children they care for.
We are thrilled that over the last 12 months we have supported the anti-poaching work of the Community Scouts in Mnkhanya Community Resources Board in Zambia’s Luangwa Valley, along with uplifting their familes with emergency food supplies during the ‘hunger months’. Thanks to our long-term supporters at the Olsen Animal Trust for a grant to achieve this.

Access to small business start-up loans and training are extremely hard to come by, if not impossible, in rural areas of Africa. This means that pro-active, entrepreneurial members of local communities never get to realise their dream of running a small enterprise to lift their families out of poverty. They are trapped by a lack of opportunity to develop themselves.
In Uganda, we have partnered with Busoga Volunteers for Community Development to rollout a Revolving Loan Scheme for women widowed by HIV/AIDS, the majority with children to support, to help these women to set up self-help income generating enterprises so as to liberate them from economic bondage / dependency and poverty.
