Bushtracks and Generosity in Action
Bushtracks accepts the task of monitoring and working with local tour operators and/or guides to be assured that the program is truly beneficial to the community. We insist there be a mechanism to verify that any project we support is completed, and with close working relationships in each area we are able to ensure the project is successful. In many cases we have been working with ground operators and guides long enough for them to become personal friends, and they are also eager to see local people benefit.
During our Africa by Air program in February 2004, we will be visiting the Kapani School Project. Bushtracks will be making a donation to the Project which was established in 1986 to educate local children who are not be able to go to school. Yosefe School is the flagship of the project, and currently sponsors 40 children, paying their tuition and giving them uniforms, books, pens and pencils. It has 34 students at various high schools, and 4 students have progressed to higher education including a student who went to a teachers' training college and returned to Yosefe as a qualified teacher. The Project also teaches the children conservation awareness, and takes groups of kids into the National Park twice a month. The general attitude towards wildlife in the villages is negative since elephants destroy crops, lions eat people or livestock, and impala antelope are just meat to eat. However due to the park visits and ongoing lectures on conservation, it is very rewarding to see the Project's efforts positively change the attitudes of these young children who may well become our game wardens of the future. (For more information visit www.normancarrsafaris.com/news/kapani.htm).
Should our travelers wish to make a contribution to the school, Generosity in Action is able to make these donations tax-deductible.
