Under the Sea.. Who is there?

By Marike | Conservation Volunteer For Africa

Dear Supporters, 

I am really excited by how much you have supported us with our project over the years. With your support we have educated thousands of young children and also inspired hundreds to follow a new found passion to protect and promote our ocean and seas around the world.

In 2023 we had donations come through in stages so we struggled to setup a structured monthly engagement plan due to not having regular funding however this didn't stop us. Over the last 3 months we managed to purchase conservation books for under-privileged primary schools that helped leaders, teachers read and talk to their class about wildlife for the first time, many of these children have never seen the ocean although they live right next them in Africa!

Alongside this we partnered with the local Aquarium charity that offer staff coming into our school providing outreach lessons in the community and then also provided free entry into the Aquarium so we just had to cover the transport with your donations.

Working together we really impacted many children and these partnerships are helping us do more and therefore we are excited to continue our work in 2024. Our biggest dream for 2024 is to fundraise for an outreach bus as we would love to be able to cut our transportation costs and run these amazing educational tours ourselves. To do this we would need to fundraise 500,000ZAR for a 18 seater mini bus and this is about $26,000, we know it is a huge target but it is giving us focus for 2024 so watch this space!

We wish you a successful 2024 and we hope you continue on our amazing journey with us!

Thank You

Marike
