Thank you for Supporting our Amazing Team!

Thank you so much for your support, your donations have allowed us to continue supporting our amazing team of female scientists. Although COVID-19 still continues to change the way we work, our team continues to work hard in driving our programmes forward.

Funds raised have been used to ensure our local team remains employed during this time and are able to work from the safety of their homes. Due to the pandemic, our programmes have had to be temporarily suspended to adhere to safety regulations, but this doesn't mean we haven't been busy. Our team are developing our programmes so we can hit the ground running once we can resume operations. We have been also using this time to engage with our online network of supporters, through competitions, online quizzes and our online store. To add, we are working with teachers in Kwale County to develop packages to be distributed to students during COVID-19, to help support students and teachers, and to ensure that no child is left behind!

We are also excited to share with you our new website, jam-packed with quizzes, regular blogs from our marine team, all our newsletters and reports, information on our programmes, and online sponsorship packages.

In July we published our strategic plan for the next 5 years, outlining our mission, vision, values, and goals. This will be vital in driving our programmes forward and growing our organisation!

We Have Launched our Website, Come and Take a Look

Since our last communication, our team of biologists, conservationists, and educators have been busy working hard to engage with our amazing network of supporters all around the world. 

COVID-19 continues to change the way we work, and like many organisations, raising much-needed funds is our biggest challenge. The funds raised in March through GlobalGiving made it possible for us to continue supporting our team during these difficult times and we have you to thank for this! With your incredibly kind support in March 2020, we have been able to continue supporting our local staff and push forward with our work.

Funds raised in March were originally going to be used to fund our education programmes, but due to the pandemic, our programmes have had to be temporarily suspended to adhere to safety regulations. Therefore funds raised have been used to support our team as they develop our programmes, so we can hit the ground running once we can resume programme operations. We have also been using this time to engage with our online network of supporters, through competitions, online quizzes and our online store. To add, we are working with teachers in Kwale County to develop packages to be distributed to students during COVID-19, to help support students and teachers, and to ensure that no child is left behind!

We are also excited to share with you our new website, jam-packed with quizzes, regular blogs from our marine team, all our newsletters and reports, information on our programmes, and online sponsorship packages.

First Month with GlobalGiving

One month ago our team was working incredibly hard to raise much-needed funds through the GlobalGiving Accelerator Campaign. Despite the rapidly changing world around us, we were able to raise the required $5,000 and this is all because of you! We now have a permanent partnership with GlobalGiving and we really cannot thank you enough!

So, what have we been up to in the month of April? 

Like many people around the world, we have had to make drastic changes to our everyday lives, now with our passionate and dedicated team working from their homes. Throughout April we have been releasing online quizzes about sustainability and marine conservation. We have had a fantastic response and will be announcing an overall winner at the end of this month. If you would like to play, please follow us on social media, where you can find all our quizzes, or contact us directly and we would be happy to email them to you!

We have also taken the opportunity to familiarise ourselves with all the amazing resources and opportunities GlobalGiving has to offer and this help couldn't have come at a better time! Like many organisations in our position, much of the future funding that we were expecting from our programmes this year has understandably had to stop or be suspended. With GlobalGiving's numerous opportunities, we are using this time to participate in their professional training and webinars as well as develop more campaigns for all the amazing projects we currently have in the pipeline. We will also be actively seeking additional funding and we will finally have time to complete many outstanding projects such as our website and development of new educational resources for our community, so when we are able, we can hit the ground running. 

All of this would not have been possible without your incredibly kind and generous donations, this really will mean the difference between success and failure over the next few months. All funds raised in March's campaign will be kept ready for when we can start engaging again with the amazing schools and students in our community. 

Thank you friends, for caring, stay safe and healthy!
