Uplifting our communities

Malcolm X said that ‘Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today’.

These words still ring true for us today in our commitment to support the disadvantaged communities around us through education, empowerment and upliftment.

Amazed and awestruck little faces, that have never seen a wild animal in the bush, despite neighbouring so close to them, inspire us every day with their passion for life and boundless energy for learning.

As do our future soccer stars who unite through sport to make the most of the small piece of land available to them to practice hard and shoot for the stars.

At a grassroots level, the sense of purpose and pride amongst our community members who participate in our part time, employment rotation programme is tangible, motivating us to continue to find opportunities to empower through valuable skills development. These are the people of our communities and the conservationists of the future.

We believe that by investing in education, we are making an investment for life and we ask you to please do the same.
