Supporting conservation and communities in Africa

Challenge4aCause was started by Rhino Africa in 2009 as a means for the team at Rhino Africa to give back to the continent from which we all make a living. It aims to support the conservation of Africa’s endangered animal and plant species and will also finance projects that seek to uplift poor communities.

We do this by running annual cycling challenges with all proceeds going to pre-selected worthy causes. We are currently raising money for:

Save The Rhino Trust: Save The Rhino Trust Namibia protects the highly endangered desert adapted black rhino population in the Damaraland region of Namibia. It is the largest free ranging black rhino population in the wild. SRT has provided consistent patrolling and monitoring of black rhino over the last 25 years and they require funds for their anti poaching units.

Wildlife ACT Fund: The Wildlife ACT Fund is a non profit company and requires funds for the development of new anti-poaching technologies, the implementation of long-term monitoring programs of endangered species and community outreach initiatives.

Good Work Foundation: The Good Work Foundation uses its funds to promote the education of disadvantaged individuals in rural areas and to pioneer wildlife corridors between existing conservation areas.

Khumbulani: Khumbulani is a centre for kids between the age of 0 to about 13 years, managed by an amazing lady called Gloria Bebeza. Run out of a two roomed house, Gloria cares for about 160 HIV infected or affected children daily.

In 2009, the more intrepid (and fit!) members of the team cycled 330km across the Damaraland desert in Namibia to raise R300,000. In 2010 we were joined by fellow members of the travel industry and the public and raised R600,000 and in 2011 we raised R650,000. Our target for 2012 is R800,000.

If you would like to help put an end to Rhino poaching and support community development in Africa, but aren't able to take part in one of the Challenge4aCause events, you can still play your part in this incredible initiative by donating to Challenge4aCause on our online donation portal.
