We are their only voice

Our Planet

The awareness of the benefits of sustainable practices for the preservation of the planet and the livelihoods of its inhabitants should not be determined by access to traditional education channels.

The CCFA has identified a gap in the ecosystem around  conservation awareness in communities that share living space with wild animals. We believe that supporting these communities through environmental and economic educational programs will cultivate community leaders who feel empowered and inspired to change the fate of the planet from one that is driven by greed and a scarcity mindset, to one guided by a unified awareness towards abundance, through sustainability. 

Our Gift

The CCFA is committed to identifying rural African communities who have not yet realised their potential to create their own sustainable economies, through driving wildlife management and conservation programs. We aim to educate and empower local communities so that they can understand that giving back to the planet does not have to be a costly undertaking – just a conscious one. 

We are passionate about sharing our dream of Africa which sees a continent that demonstrates pride and respect for its greatest asset – the wildlife.

Our Responsibility

We believe that it is our responsibility as beneficiaries of an economy that is built around a unique environment of natural wildlife and resources, to ensure its sustainability.

The diversity of cultures and varying scales of education or lack thereof in rural African communities pose a challenge to economic growth outside of city living. The CCFA has identified the integral role that these diverse communities play in maintaining a cohesive ecosystem between man and his natural environment. We have developed wildlife management programs that can be adopted by rural communities to empower people as individuals and to preserve both the wildlife and the viability of tourism in Africa.

Challenges we face

Luxury destination hotel groups Mantis and Accor have recognised the need to offer sustainable support and life skills training to the communities directly impacted by their properties and the tourism industry they attract along with them. The group offers upliftment to local communities through job creation and modern housing provisions. However, the transition from living in previously disadvantaged conditions to working within the luxury hospitality industry has proven to be challenging. Exposure to a different way of life poses new socio-economic paradigm shifts.  Mantis and Accor have recognised the necessity to flip the perspective of individuals who previously relied on poaching as a means of financial survival, to one that sees the importance of nature conservation, on both a personal and global scale.

The solution

The CCFA was formed with a view to closing the gap between impoverished communities and surrounding luxury ‘pods’ developed for the tourism industry. This grant-giving non-profit organisation educates and empowers local communities, enabling them to become leaders in driving sustainable wildlife management systems in place on the ground.
