To our appreciated supporters,

It is now time to give you some news from Daktari and tell you about the impact of your donations.

Over 900 children have come for the week of education about their environment at Daktari and we thought we had to expand. Thanks to your donations, we have been able, since January, to start our new Youth development programme.

Every week the local school contact a student who has finished school and suggest him/her to join Daktari for a week to help in the education of the younger children. This young person, not employed, instead of staying in the street, can now develop his enthusiasm in the protection of wildlife and helping his community.

This is a great success and we are very proud to have the local youth as part of the project, allowing them to discover and expand some interest for their environment. Some of them have already changed their future orientation and have decided to go back to school to study Nature and Conservation.

There is no doubt this has a tremendous impact to the future of wildlife and the beauty of our country and we express our gratitude for being a part of it.

Contact us if you have comments, questions or suggestion about Daktari and its mission and we will be happy to share them with you.

We thank you for your donations which are vital to us and are happy to have you by our side.

Best regards,

The Daktari Team
