And Do Good: From andBeyond‘s greater conservation model down to the tiniest details of the activities that take place in their lodges daily, every decision made revolves around their core ethic of Care of the Land, Care of the Wildlife and Care of the People.
While sustainability is a huge focus for andBeyond, the care for people are also given much thought and attention. Some of the ways that andBeyond focuses on people in the nations they impact is through local skills development, facilitating formal education programs and facilitating formal tertiary education programs through Africa Foundation’s Community Leaders Education Fund. To-date, 915 bursaries were awarded, 604 students have attended the program, 533 have graduated and 62 rural African communities were impacted for good.
Some huge Star Projects such as Kenya’s Emurutoto Clinic, Namibia’s Maltahöhe school feeding programme and the Benguerra Island Clinic played a fundamental role in supporting community resilience over the COVID-19 lockdown. During these tough times, through partnership with andBeyond, Africa Foundation provided 11,000 villagers in Zanzibar access to a new health clinic, 7,134 parcels of food were delivered in Southern Africa, 1,300 Kenyan community members received food support and 14 boreholes were repaired or drilled across all regions for access to clean drinking water.
