Obviously a wondrously effective organisation. Small, but exquisite in every detail”
Bill Oddie, OBE – Birdwatcher, natural history presenter and High Five Club Patron
Communities, self-help groups, NGOs, and not for profit organisations that operate in wildlife areas of Africa may apply to the High Five Club for a small grant. We support innovative projects working for social change.
The High Five Club’s mission is to give communities living in wildlife areas of Africa a hand up (as opposed to a hand out) in raising their living standards and future livelihood prospects by funding small-scale community projects that address:
Health & Nutrition
Although we’d love to be able to help everybody, we can’t. We remain focused on our strategic vision and keep to our funding remit. This means only funding development projects in communities that live with wildlife in Africa.
Our aim is to:
• support projects working for social change with a knock on impact on wildlife conservation
• support community groups with little hope of conventional funding
• support projects working to reduce poverty
We do not:
• sponsor individuals
• fund operating costs
Our grants are normally in the range of up to £1,000, although other amounts will be considered.
