Hot off the press: We have launched the African TRavel Recovery Fund (ATrF) to support communities and landscapes affected by the sudden loss of income from tourism to recover from the effects of the pandemic in a greener way. These communities are also the ones protecting Africa’s wildlife and wilderness.
Wild Philanthropy is a charitable foundation designed to protect at-risk ecosystems and support vulnerable communities in Africa.
Vision: People and wildlife prosper in Africa’s wilderness as result of benefiting from economic opportunities that sustainable tourism provides
Mission: To protect at-risk ecosystems in Africa by supporting and enabling local communities to realise the value of conservation through tourism.
As part of the Africa House Group, we are working to transform the way travel benefits Africa. The foundations operating costs are financed by a small group of conscientious adventure travelers and Journeys by Design through its 1% for the Planet pledge. This allows 100% of all other donations we receive to be passed on directly to projects on the ground. This is our 100% guarantee. Click here to find out more about our approach.
Wild Philanthropy’s solution to the challenges Africa is facing uses travel and philanthropy to drive much needed finance in conservation and community development. We focus our support on our three core ecosystems; the Omo Valley, Ntakata Forest and Enonkishu Conservancy. Each is designed to achieve high impact conservation and community development with tourism at its heart. We also support a range of partner organisations.
If you would like to help us support Africa, its people, wildlife and wilderness then please donate now.
