The Africa Foundation

The Africa Foundation facilitates the empowerment and development of people living in or adjacent to protected areas in Southern and East Africa. We fund projects based on the needs within the communities specifically in the following three areas: * _Education_ (http://www.africafoundation.org/) - school improvement, bursary schemes, conservation lessons * _Healthcare_ (http://www.africafoundation.org/) - primary healthcare centres, HIV/AIDs awareness programmes, access to water, sanitation * _Income Generating Activities_ (http://www.africafoundation.org/) - agricultural projects, skills centres, entrepreneurial support A key Africa Foundation aim is to help break the cycle of poverty. We therefore seek to support projects that combine to provide a ‘conveyor belt’ of resources from pre-natal care, right the way through to university bursaries.

Story

C Block (Year 6) at Dragon School, Oxford, are doing something remarkable for Rhinos. On the 14 November, 2017, they will 'swim the channel' in a sponsored relay in the school pool - a total of 1,416 lengths, to be completed within one hour.

The children are supporting 'Rhinos Without Borders', a charity that is translocating 100 rhinos from areas of South Africa where they are in grave danger from poachers to safety in Botswana.

Rhinos are currently facing extinction, and this project is a major initiative supported by the Africa Foundation, andBeyond and Great Plains Conservation. In July, the latest group of 12 rhinos were transolcated by air and, with your generous donations, we can help move the next group.
