Serengeti Girls Run for Women's Empowerment in Conservation

Serengeti Girls Run for Women's Empowerment in Conservation

Personal message

I’m very passionate about 3 things: 


Nature: Conservation of wildlife and the environment 
Being of service: To really make a difference within communities, we need to teach skills, educate and empower. When educating a woman, you also educate her family, her community, and ultimately society at large. 
Trail running: My passion for running was truly ignited when I joined an all-female trail running community #Chickswhotrail - an adventurous and supportive community of wild-hearted, brave women.

A phenomenal opportunity to combine these 3 passions, has crossed my path, and I’m asking your help to realise it!
I work for Singita, a conservation brand that has been preserving African wilderness for 25 years. Singita, in partnership with the not-for-profit Singita Grumeti Fund, is committed to women and girl’s empowerment programmes in the Serengeti. 

Together with BRAVE, they will host the Serengeti Girls Run, an exclusive all-women multi-stage run of between 30 and 90 kilometres in three consecutive days, across the iconic Serengeti wilderness. The objective: to raise awareness and funds focused on opportunities for girls and women to become leaders in conservation (through funding school fees & university scholarships, life skills, enterprise development training, environmental education and internships).

I’m raising funds for the logistical aspects of participating in this Run, as well as a donation towards the Singita Grumeti Fund. 

Funds required for logistics: R20 000 
Donation amount: R30 000


Goal amount to raise: R50 000

You can help to create tomorrow's female conservation leaders! it takes one small drop to create a ripple effect - every donation will make a difference!
