“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead.
The Sabi Sand Pfunanani Trust aims to see communities of Bushbuckridge, South Africa benefit from conservation. This is achieved through partnership between conservation and communities helping one another – the meaning of ‘Pfunanani’.
With a focus on social upliftment, the Trust’s core value is building lasting relationships.
Set in this deep rural area, these communities are far removed from many public resources and often last in line for schooling, transport, water and other basic services. Although they lack financial resources, the area’s communities have a great asset in their abundant natural and human capital. The Sabi Sand Pfunanani Trust works across 3 key pillars: Education, environment and enterprise.
The Sabi Sand Pfunanani Trust aims to facilitate community engagement on conservation issues, increasing their involvement in the wildlife value chain, and activating youth participation against the poaching.
