Mondays: Picking up the children in the village
Dear Friends of Daktari,
We would like to thank you all for helping Daktari towards the purchase of the Toyota Quantum to safely transport the children.
Every Monday, the mini bus is driving to the village to collect 8 to 10 children coming to Daktari for a week of education. This is a trip the children will never forget, as it is, for most of the children, their first interaction with wildlife although they live only 50 kms away. During these two trips coming from their village to Daktari, and back a week later, they often have the opportunity to see cheetahs, lions and even elephants while driving between the two beautiful game reserves of Karongwe and Makalali. What a treat for the children!!!
It was very difficult to find the funds to purchase the vehicle but thanks to you, we’ve done it!!! We still have to refund the loan we had to take, and this is taken care of by our regular volunteers.
We trust you are pleased by your involvement with the education of the children and the protection of the environment and we are very honoured to have you with us on this matter.
We invite you to read about out two other projects on Global Giving about conservation and we hope you will find them worth your support.
We wish you a lovely day and hope to hear from you very soon.
