£4,165raised of £5,000 target by 33 supporters

    Weʼve raised £4,165 to reach 10,000 Vietnamese kids and parents with Vietnamese Rhino books. Changing attitudes will reduce sales of African Rhino Horn in Asia.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    The Rhino battle is being fought in Southern Africa but the war will be won in Asia.

    Given that Vietnam is the biggest buyer of Rhino horn we are focusing on educating Vietnamese kids with a fully illustrated Vietnamese/English story book. The aim is to win hearts and minds at the source of the demand.

    When the buying of Rhino horn stops the killing of Rhinos in Africa will stop.

    I have been inspired by Prince William, the President of 'United for Wildlife' who has been out to Vietnam for the first time. He believes in encouraging Vietnamese children to protect Rhinos with the help of a story book.

    I now have been out to Vietnam twice and found that Vietnamese school kids have no idea what a Rhino even looks like and were horrified to hear about the dreadful killings of Rhinos in Africa. By educating Vietnamese children and their parents in their own language, I aim to get to the root of the demand and change attitudes.
    I have been working with local charities ENV(Education for Nature-Vietnam) and ChangeVN who are kindly helping distribute the books to targeted schools in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. FirstNews in Ho Chi Minh City are doing the printing.

    I have paid for all the research in Vietnam myself and now need to raise money for the printing in Vietnam. If you might part with a bit of hard earned money it would be hugely appreciated by me. 50pence, 50 EU cents, 10 Rand or 70 US cents approx. will pay for a fully illustrated Vietnamese/English rhino educational story book with a foreword by David Attenborough, delivered to a child in Vietnam.

    Progress so far.

    We now have donations for 8000 books. Thanks so much. We really are on our way!.

    We have to do a run of 10,000 to get an economical price.

    Please keep going with your generous donations so that we can make it happen.

    Please tell any of your friends who love the wild beauty of Africa to help donate.

    Also see what we have done last year. 7000 dual language rhino books donated to the rural poaching areas of South Africa where rural kids are now reading in their own languages - the future African conservationists. See www,

    Thanks so much for supporting our Vietnamese Rhino Education Initiative. As soon as we have raised the £5000 we will go to print in Vietnam. This will be followed by the launch of the dual language English/Vietnamese 'Romeo the Rhino to the targeted schools in Vietnam.

    We will have our rhino book launch tie in with a half marathon in Vietnam or maybe a cycle event persuading young Vietnamese that dynamic and impressive Vietnamese guys rely on 'Chi' ''Strength of Will' and do not need rhino horn to prove their strength or success.

    All international transfer donations will appear as pounds on our site so just transfer your local currency, rands, dollars, euros and we will get it in pounds. Thank you so much.

    Rhino Hugs!

      A great rhino educational project. Reducing the buying of rhino horn in Vietnam will reduce the killing of our African rhinos.
