We at SavannahAlalia.com are a for-purpose company. That means we believe in supporting opportunities and charities for all beings – human and wildlife.
All our programmes are designed to support you in creating change in your life and obviously support us as a for-purpose business, AND we give a percentage of your payment to some incredible charities.
When you invest in yourself and in a for-purpose company, you are also supporting making the world a better place.
We like to think of it as part of our investment in social change. We are involved with several different charities, and one of them is TUSK. Earlier this year, we caught up with one of the founders of TUSK, Charlie Mayhew, and found out more about the charity and how it started.
Tusk is a charity that, amongst other things, supports wildlife in Africa.
Tusk is a dynamic and pioneering organisation with 25 years of experience initiating and funding conservation, community development and environmental education programmes across Africa. Since its formation in 1990, Tusk has invested more than £25 ($40) million into a wide range of projects across the continent.
Tusk supports more than 60 field projects in 19 African countries that work to protect wildlife and also help to alleviate poverty through sustainable development and education amongst rural communities who live alongside the wildlife. As the ever-expanding human population – and its demand for more land – brings increasing conflict with wildlife, Tusk’s aim is to forge an inextricable link between the preservation of Africa’s natural heritage and the future of its land, culture and people.
Conservation of wildlife remains a key objective with substantial funding being applied towards the protection of threatened species such as elephants, rhinos, cheetahs, chimpanzees, mountain and lowland gorillas, African wild dogs, giant sable and even marine species such as turtles.
Tusk has, with its partners in the field, been at the forefront of promoting and funding community-driven conservation programmes. The charity’s holistic approach recognises that the long-term future of wildlife is dependent on education and sustainable development.
HRH The Duke of Cambridge became the charity’s Royal Patron in 2005 and has been a proactive supporter of Tusk’s work ever since.
We’d love to hear from you:
