World Youth Wildlife Summit Sponsorship

Personal message

We are 4 people raising funds in support of the World Youth Rhino Summit. 

The event is a conservation summit for high school students that is being organised in collaboration between Project Africa and Project Rhino KZN. The summit will take place over heritage day weekend (21-24 September 2019). This is the third summit they have organised. I attended there second one that took place in 2015. 

They have recruited a few of the past attendees of the summit to come back and help at this next summit as youth leaders. One of the ways we are helping is with helping the organizers with fundraising towards the general cost of the summit. Thus, we are returning to participate in this Summit as group or 'Regiment' Leaders as we are still involved in Conservation in our own various ways. 

The World Youth Wildlife Summit will be a focused gathering of 150 young conservation leaders, aged 15-18 years, from the Southern African Development Community and beyond. Delegates, educators, and conservation leaders will be brought together at the iconic Kruger National Park, South Africa, to directly address the current wildlife-poaching crisis and develop the resolutions needed to stop wildlife crime.

The mission is to create a world-wide call to action by the youth against rhino poaching and all other forms of wildlife crime as well as engage youth conservation leaders in wildlife conservation & protection strategies and empower delegates to become local, national and international Ambassadors for wildlife & conservation and influence policy at local, state, national and international levels.

You can see more about this summit on the website: https://www.projectrhinokzn.org/youth-summit/

 The organizers are asking schools which are sending students to contribute R3000 per person for the summit. Many of the schools can't afford that so any money we raise will go towards helping the summit cover the deficit costs of the students who cant afford to raise the full R3000. We are fundraising to be able to sponsor youth delegates entrance feeS to attend the summit. Each delegate has been asked to fundraise R3000 to attend and unfortunately, not everyone can afford this.

Attending the summit will provide a platform for passionate youth to engage with conservation experts and experience African Wilderness First hand. These Youth Delegates will be educated and challenged to work together to directly address the current threats of wildlife crime and to help develop possible solutions to problems identified.

For many of us the opportunity of attending this summit was the reason we decided to pursue careers in a field of Conservation and now want to help give other Youth this incredible opportunity to attend this next Summit.
