How we work
“Upliftment through education” is the Buffelshoek Trust broad mandate. Since 2001, every investment has been directed at addressing the conditions required to create a supportive environment in which children, youth and adults can participate in meaningful learning opportunities.
Our goals at the Buffelshoek Trust are to:
- Educate the youth.
- Increase workplace skills and capacity among communities.
- Stimulate employment opportunities between communities and private nature reserves.
- Improve the livelihoods of communities who are most directly dependent on natural resources through community based environmental management.
- Develop cohesion and leadership within existing community structures to establish networks for collaboration and improved resilience.
