Why fundraise for Quo Vadis Africa?

In times of darkness, you can choose to be consumed by it, dwindling in the lack of inspiration or you can decide to find the light or simply become it!

We’re harnessing the power of fundraising to fund the design and activation of our sustainable models that will have the power to education, evolve and retraditionalise a new sustainable way of living for the rural communities, so that people and the biodiversity of Shongweni Nature Reserve can co-exist in harmony for generations to come; unless we address critical and complex dynamics that exist at grass routes, we will never reach global conservation sustainability targets.

The 3 poverty-stricken communities surrounding Shongweni are tribal, have an 80% unemployment rate and still practice old customs that place massive stress on the biodiversity areas. To relieve this impact on the biodiversity of the reserve, our sustainable model aims to exchange subsistence values communities receive from the natural resources, with alternative options. For example:

  • Instead of chopping down tree’s for fuel
  • Instead of poaching the reserve animals for food
  • We can produce bio-fuel from water hyacinth
  • we can teach poultry farming, Aquaculture & Aquaponics

Your support will enable us to reach sustainability.

We need various resources for our projects that we simply cannot afford! Your fundraising will help us to develop:

  • 1 – Develop our water hyacinth briquette maker
  • 2 – Complete the prototype charcoal briquette maker
  • 3 – Fund staff training and develop community educational programs
  • 4 – Build pools to start fisheries for our Aquaculture and Aquaponic initiatives
  • 5 – Entry into our 2nd phase of food security
  • 6 – Investment into the youth to give them a brighter future
  • 7 – Save for 1700 hectares of reserve fencing to prevent poaching
