Challenge Give More, Get More

Daktari is also opportunity for fun!
Daktari is also opportunity for fun!

Dear All,

We would like to thank all of you who have given to our project through the challenge Give More, Get More. We have now received from you a total of $ 1960 matched by Global Giving at $ 438 which will give us a total so far of $ 2398.

This is wonderful and helps so much to continue the project. We could not survive without your contribution and can’t thank you enough for your generosity.

The challenge isn’t finished and we still have to the 1st of December to benefit from donor’s generosity. So if you haven’t made your donation yet, there is still time!!!

We are following the progress every day while still having the children here with us. They all know about your kindness and are very grateful for the opportunity they are given.

Lately we received an orphaned bushbaby. Although it’s a very common animal in the area, most of the children have never seen one. In the children’s village, they have all been exterminated. The children enjoy the cheerful personality of Chico the bushbaby and all hope they will eventually come back in their village. The children’s interaction with Chico is very important and shows them that animals aren’t all dangerous and can also be enjoyable to observe instead of being seen as food or traditional medicine.

We look forward to have your feedback and may be your visit?

Best regards,

Ian and Michele
