    Default Honorary Rangers need some 4x4 help

    Folks I need some 4x4 community support for a very good cause and our 'Top Spietkop' has given me the go ahead to ask for your help with our latest project.

    SWAMBO and I are honorary rangers with SANParks and part of the virtual region, this means that we are not bound to a specific park. We are in the priveledged position to join forces with other regions to help in all parks.

    As we all know, the future of conservation lies in the hands of the youth, they are the future policy makers and have to carry on where this generation has left off. They will need to make informed decisions and their education is of vital importance.

    The new project is called "Taking kids to Marakele" and strives to do just that, get kids from surrounding disadvantaged communities in the parks and teach them the basics of nature conservation and sow the seed of a love for nature. This project would be run in Marakele, one of SANPark's younger parks and would start of with the communities around Thabazimbi and expand to include the close neighbours, Lephalale and Modimole or Elisras and Warmbaths as it used to be known.
    Being such a young park with limited budget the park management turned to the HRs for assistance in this worthy cause.
    The cost of getting a child in to the park and on a lecture bench is ridiculously low, a mere R 20-00, but for the impoverished surrounding areas this is more than most kid's parents can afford. We need your help in sponsoring these children and giving them the opportunity to experience nature at its best and learn about conservation. The R 20 provides them with entrance and an introduction lecture in conservation as well as a snack and something to drink and afterwards a drive around the plains where there is abundant wildlife to see. The learners are picked up from the schools by the bus taking the parks children to school and returned when they need to fetch the children so an existing resource is being properly utilised.

    What it is all about


    The pictures above are from the pilot program that are run over three days and has sponsorship from big business like P&P and a few others.
    Marakele hopes to expand the pilot program to all the children in the surrounding area and this was the request by park management:
    To cover for access and lunch we need R20 per child, targeting 50 kids per week for five weeks per month for 12 months = R20x50x5x12 ( R60 000 per annum for 3 000 kids)
    Can you help? Could you find it in your heart to assist a disadvantaged child to experience nature and learn about conservation.
    We need all kinds of donations in this one, private sponsors, one of sponsors monthly donations and corporate sponsors.
    your R 20 per month would enable 12 children a year to share in this this wonderful experience and possibly change their lives for the better. It is not so much to ask, how many children can you sponsor?

    Post your pledge in this topic or if you wish to remain anonymous just pm me or send an email to [email protected]This can not be better, children and nature benefiting

    I am asking for your kindheartedness as I know we as "the rough 4x4ers" can show the bunnyhuggers what caring is all about. For the price of a pie and a coke you can make a difference.

    All and any donations will make a difference!

    Instead of just pledging, let's set a target to reach here, and make it count.

    Ok, so the forum has just over 18000 members, and The Ranger's target is R60 000 to get 3000 kids through the program in a year.

    it will only take 300 of us donating R200 to get this together? Dirk, are you prepared to send out a general email for the cause?

    So lets make the forum target R60 000. Henk/Jenny can you give us a weekly update on collections?



    My txfer is done.

    Good cause Henk, got the banking details, do we need to put anything specific on the payments thing to make sure it goes to this cause?

    I WAS going to chip R200, but seeing as Doug has chipped R240 I'll just have to make it R300.

    can't have these bloody Gauteng types beating us down here in the Cape...

    no no, you have it all wrong.
