“Purpose-led travel uplifts communities and nature in extraordinary ways”
Africa Tailormade is committed to being a responsible corporate citizen by effectively contributing to the environment and communities in which it operates. We realise that our success is not based on how we perform operationally or financially but also on the impact and footprint we leave behind. As a group, we have endeavoured to support organisations that positively contribute to the upliftment of our beautiful land.
Hermanus Rainbow Trust
Hermanus Rainbow Trust is a non-profit organisation that distributes its services to various support centres in the Western Cape, South Africa. Namely, Buffelsjag, Gansbaai, Stanford, Hermanus, Zwelihle, Kleinmond and Betty’s Bay. The organisation’s main focus is to provide social development services and support, to orphans, vulnerable woman and children, and disadvantaged families in impoverished communities. By means of a five-step programme, the trust empowers those they assist with basic human rights that include the right to education, nutrition, clothing, emotional support and most of all, protection. Hermanus Rainbow Trust relies heavily on donations and calls on the public to stand together to better the lives of those who can’t.
On an ongoing basis and for the past five years, Africa Tailormade have sponsored two young children – Keomorata Matee and Simbonile Nqinleyo.
The Waterberg Wild Dogs Conservation Project, through the Endangered Wildlife Trust, South Africa
Through the South Africa’s Endangered Wildlife Trust, Africa Tailormade support the Waterberg Wild Dogs Conservation Project.
African ‘Painted’ Wild Dogs, also known as the Painted Wolf & Cape Hunting Dog, are endangered mostly due to ongoing habitat fragmentation, conflict with human activities and infectious disease. The estimated decline in African Wild Dog population size can be uncertain due to the species’ tendency to population fluctuations. However, what is certain is that African Wild Dogs are the second most endangered carnivore in Africa after the Ethiopian Wolf. In South Africa, we have fewer than 550 roaming our wild spaces and only 39 distinct sub-populations left in Africa. African Wild Dogs need large areas to support themselves and for populations to be genetically diverse and sustainable.
The LumoHawk Foundation is a non-profit charity organisation which supports the educational needs, and at times the sporting needs too, of previously disadvantaged children and their communities in South Africa. In doing so, the Foundation aspires to give opportunity and hope to the leaders of tomorrow.
Although the fundraising began back 2010, the actual LumoHawk Foundation was only formalised in 2013 by Joel Stransky to raise funds for underprivileged children, with a focus on educational and sporting needs. Through his dedicated efforts and the unbelievable generosity of many sponsors and athletes, the Foundation continues to grow from strength to strength.
