We are pleased to announce our support of the following 3 Charities for the 2019 event and encourage our runners to get involved and RUN 4 A CAUSE and raise funding for one or all of these initiatives:
- Greenline Africa – Greenline Africa is a locally based Trust that works with local communities and the beehives are made by community Women. The number of hives was increased last year along the Zambezi National Park bordering the Mkhosana High Density community. A community group was trained to run and monitor the project last year and it was our hope that the bee fence will not only keep out the elephant from the town but would also provide honey for the community.
- The Vic Falls Anti-Poaching Unit – The Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Unit is a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of our local wildlife and natural resources.
- The Vic Falls Environment Watch – VFEW is a trust of people concerned about Victoria Falls and its surrounds, and as such, seeks to situate itself as a stakeholder/public interest body that shall be consulted for the conservation, protection and development of this area. VFEW aims to work closely with the Environmental Management Authority, National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority, Victoria Falls Town Council, the private sector, and other stakeholders in achieving the betterment of the area.
Should anyone want to donate directly to these initiatives they can do so when they come to collect their race numbers at the Kingdom Hotel.
