Charities We Support
As we strive to embody our slogan, of being in service to others, we have established that a small percentage of our profit from every order gets donated to a charity of your choice. Up until now, we are proud to announce that we have donated substantial amounts toward helping charities and non-profit organisations make a difference in the communities and wildlife in and around South Africa. There are so many charities out there doing great things, sometimes it can be hard to know just who to support. Here are a few charities that are close to our heart. We encourage you to find out who is making a difference in your community and share with us the organisations that you support.
Africa is home to keystone wildlife species that are facing extinction. To protect from further decline, our on-the-ground safeguards involve training rangers and using sniffer dogs to stop wildlife traffickers. Wildlife must survive in their natural habitats, so we empower local communities through conservation-friendly development and work with international agencies to protect Africa’s natural resources. Critical to protecting these vital ecosystems are people. Sharing land across the continent, local communities and wildlife often live alongside each other, leading to struggles for space and water. If people and wildlife learn to live together — inside and outside of protected areas — the future for all will thrive.
The AWF's mission is to ensure wildlife and wild lands thrive in modern Africa, they assist in the areas of:
- Wildlife Conservation
- Land & Habitat Protection
- Community Empowerment
- Economic Development
