Working with the surrounding communities has proven to be rewarding and enlightening. In an effort to help locals coexist happily with the cheetah and wildlife population, our programmes have extended to projects that are environmentally sustainable and also offer an alternate resource for income.
Some examples include:
- Monitoring Kiu Livestock Dip Project which helps keep the livestock healthy and free of pests and diseases;
- Developing a Craft Sales Programme to create a business which offers an outlet to community-based crafts relating to wildlife and the environment;
- Linking with Eco-Sys Wana Duma to launch micro-financing projects that are sustainable for the environment and economy;
- Improving tree and beekeeping programmes to promote environmental caretaking.
