The Citizen Strategy has been focused through the Dr. Veronica Jantjie Foundation (2020/554344/08) (NPO number: 248-866).“Ultimately conservation is about people. If you don’t have sustainable development around these [wildlife] parks, then people will have no interest in them, and the parks will not survive.”
The Foundation is dedicated in improving the quality of life for individuals in South Africa and in the continent of Africa. The Foundation acts in collaboration with the government, the private sector and education institutions to improve the quality of life for the lives of all. From the education of students in Umlazi or Soweto, to the health of a young mother in Zambia, Lusaka, we see the opportunity to change peoples lives.
Citizenship encompasses three areas:
- Community Development
- Entrepreneur Development
- Environmental Education
