We build electric eco-fences in Africa to protect Africa's threatened ecosystems


For the 18th year in 2021, our team will be entering the Rhino Charge and our pledge is to raise US$ 15,000 for this amazing charity.  our pledge to you is that every shilling that you contribute goes straight to Rhino Ark and all the expenses of us getting to the event, preparing and maintaining the car and all other expenses we cover ourselves so you know that your money goes fully to where it is intended to go.  We have raised over Kshs 17 million over the years and we are still going strong!  Help us to raise another $15,000 please!

You ask why Rhino Ark?  Because the money is spent wisely but also because it does the following:

- protects the water catchment area of Kenya by fencing them off and managing the fences, securing the future water supplies of Kenya

-  reduce human wildlife conflict because wild animals continue to live in these forests that are being fenced.  This includes elephant, buffalo and many predators too

- prevent illegal logging of the forests by creating the barrier of the fence

- significantly helping the neighbouring farmers by protecting their crops from animal damage

- contributing to various funds to help endangered species such as the Bongo.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thank you!
