We thought it was time to let you know how you have made a difference to Daktari with your donation through GlobalGiving. We have now received 11 171 US $ from 187 donors. The total project is 12 848 US $ and we only have to reach another 1 677 US $ to complete the project.

To date we have already invited 75 children for a week of education about wildlife and environment and all of them are already spreading the word with their friends and family.

The two wildlife clubs are showing a very enthusiastic interest and our volunteer team is actually at the moment having a meeting with the two clubs, in their village, to give them support with their new passion. We anticipate this will help them to be more familiar with nature and develop awareness about its protection.

We thank you all, friends, family and anonymous for your fantastic support.
