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.
