Daktari Outreach Program conclusion

Dear Supporter,

This project was started in 2012 to assist Daktari Outreach with the activities of various wildlife clubs among disadvantaged youth in Limpopo Province, South Africa. Donations to this project have been used to fund fuel, stationary and other resources used in the meetings, discussions and activities of the wildlife clubs. The funds even enabled a data projector to be bought that is taken along to each meeting to facilitate slideshows, presentations and other media that introduce discussions and debate on wildlife and grassroots conservation topics by club members.

Towards the end of 2013 and into 2014 funds from this project were used to assist one of the promising former wildlife club members with gaining his professional field guiding qualifications and drivers licence to enable him to gain full time paid employment! Kutullo is now employed as a guide and researcher, using his skills and passion to educate and inspire people from all over the world in the area of wildlife conservation.

As the project closes we thank all those who donated for their generous support, and if you would like to continue to support Daktari’s Outreach program, they are now a fully operating charity that can be found right her on GlobalGiving (http://www.globalgiving.org/donate/992/daktari-bush-school-and-wildlife-orphanage/).

Thank you again for supporting this project.

All the best

Example of success in Australia

Dear Supporter,

Whilst we are still waiting for funds to come in and the possibility of developing partnerships, I wanted to share with you a success story for our Youth Scholarship Program in Australia.

Two $3,000 (AUD) scholarships are being offered to 18-20 year olds by the East Gippsland Shire Council (Victoria), in partnership with Young People Without Borders, to support young East Gippsland residents wanting to participate in an incredible Asia Pacific volunteer placement in 2015.

The scholarships are an investment by the community, for the community, which give otherwise inaccessible opportunities to local young people to engage in our Asian region.

Mayor Cr Mark Reeves, who is a huge supporter of young people expanding their horizons through travel, said the East Gippsland Shire Council is proud to support and engage young people from the community to access these immersive YPWB placements in Asia. "Enriching experiences in our region will support the development of the type of global citizens and intercultural leadership and understanding our community will need in the future and I encourage all young people to apply,” Cr Reeves said.

We really hope to be able to offer similar to the youths of the UK very shortly. In the meantime though, thank you for continuing to support this project. Your donations means that once we have everything finalised, we will be able to offer more participants the chance to change their futures.

All the best

More Fundraising for President's Village Home

Dear Supporter,

It has been another busy quarter for the GVI Seychelles Chritable Trust. At Cap Ternay, volunteers completed an Underwater scavenger hunt. Hidden underwater were (ocean-friendly) clues for the teams to find; some buddy teams planned routes based on their knowledge and familiarity of our home reefs while others plunged in with fingers crossed and eyes wide open.

All teams came up victorious, though of course some more than others! Each clue provided the team with a task valued between 10 and 100 points, giving them another day and a half to pull together to complete the challenge and make it to the finish line by 5:00 pm on Thursday. Tasks ranged from a handstand on L'Islette to a marathon snorkel from Cap Ternay beach to Anse Souillac, while others sent the group down to the very south of the island to Police Bay or required a dancing rendition of the Thriller on another beach (on film). Not all tasks were completed, but the following evening we all gathered at Anse Royale for a meal and point tally along with a laugh at the various videos and photos that had been accumulated during the day. A prize for the individual who had raised the most and for the team with the most points was a little bonus, but the real perk of the day had been an excuse to celebrate raising over £300 for the President's Village.

The challenges continue to be a source of fun, a great opportunity for team building and help us improve community awareness regarding the work of the President’s Village Children’s Home. The donations from family and friends of volunteers and staff, have been amazing and we would like to thank you all for your continued support. Please keep an eye out for our next Charitable Trust event in a few months as we aim to continue supporting the great work of our chosen organisations and fundraise even more than before! 

All the best
