Dear Supporter,

Years go by and I sometime forget about how important our work is for the children we welcome at Daktari for a week of environmental education.

You are a part of this success and I would like to share with you the email I received from Mina, an underprivileged child we invited at Daktari eight years ago.

At this time, we were just starting our organisation, spent all our private savings and were scared not too succeed. However, the heart, dedication and passion were there already and I find out that these ingredients might be the keys to success. We didn't have fund but you believed in us and we can't thank you enough for that. 

Enjoy the impact you have made to Mina's life, through your support.
