“Ultimately conservation is about people.
If you don’t have sustainable development around these [wildlife] parks, then people will have no interest in them, and the parks will not survive.” — Nelson Mandela
Africa Foundation was founded in 1992 to uplift, up-skill and empower people living in key rural communities close to conservation areas. We believe that for true development to take place, we need to nurture, protect and preserve not only our natural environment and wildlife, but our people, our cultures and our customs. By partnering with communities, Governments and the private sector, Africa Foundation supports the development of sustainable projects that empower communities and contribute to conserving Africa’s land and wildlife.
