What we do:
We find high-performing African conservation and natural resource organizations with exceptional talent, a proven track record and/or great potential.
We provide those organizations with customized organizational support, helping them build strong teams, develop focused strategies, communicate and market their work, and implement effective management systems.
Building a Network
We manage our portfolio as a growing network, giving them opportunities to learn from each other, collaborate, and interact with a network of funders and external supporters.
A Portfolio of Outstanding Conservation Organizations
Solutions to Africa’s conservation challenges exist – but we need to make them even more effective and sustainable and we need to help them grow. We believe effective and long-lasting conservation models focus on three key pillars:
Rights: strengthening local rights over land and resources
Value: Creating economic incentives for stewardship
Governance: Strengthening decision-making bodies and governance institutions
We provide organizational support through a customized, multi-year process that responds to the unique needs of an individual organization, while also following a consistent and systematic service delivery approach. We help our partners develop more focused strategies for achieving impact; communicating clearly and effectively about their work; raising the money they need to succeed; developing their leadership skills and partnerships; and building their management systems.
