Thank you for you support!

Once again, we would like to thank you for your support in our 'Pen and Bags' project. Unfortunately, our fundraising for this project has not been very successful and we have had to retire this micro-project.

However, with your sponsorship, we have been able to cover the cost of a few pens and bags. We have also been fortunate to receive donations, such as toothbrushes and soaps, that we have been able to include in the gift bags.

The children are really proud to receive their bag at the end of the week and we feel it is an appropriate reward for all their hard work. It is also an environmentally friendly bag that they can re-use for shopping, rather than using plastic bags. We are also selling some bags to our volunteers as a way to get our name 'out there' and to raise funds for DAKTARI.

Don't forget that you can still support our main environmental education programme, support our Outreach Programme's Eco Club, or sponsor the care of our magnificent leopard, Shiloweni.

As always, DAKTARI is so very grateful for your kindness and generosity.

Have a wonderful day :)
