Camp Jabulani

Project

Camp Jabulani and their sister property, The Hoedspruit Endangered Species Center (HESC) are actively involved in the education of learners, students and the general public about the necessity of conservation. This includes a community outreach program and the Rhino youth-art conservation initiative.

Camp Jabulani and HESC have partnered with the rural school, Lumukisa Preparatory School, located 30 km from HESC. This partnership gives underprivileged learners the opportunity to learn more about endangered wildlife, particularly the cheetah and rhino. Groups of 16 learners visit the center throughout the year, accompanied by 4 teachers. During these visits they assist the staff as they go about their daily duties and are taught about conservation and the beauty of wildlife.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of November 17, 2017

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
