How to donate:
Our vision is to mostly get hold of old cameras that people are no longer using. Each year, people upgrade their cameras as the technology improves. Some people sell their old cameras, others store them. If you have an old camera that you no longer have a use for then send them our way so that we can use them to teach students about wildlife and wildife photography. Please note that if you do donate a camera then be sure to include the battery, charging equipment and a CF or SD card.
You can also donate any other camera or photographic equipment that is no longer of use like old tri-pods, flash or lighting equipment and old camera storage/carrying bags. DSLR cameras are preferred for the older students. Compact cameras are also great for the younger students to teach the basics and composition. (Sorry - no film cameras).
Money is also required to conduct the talks in schools for projection equipment. We also require donations for the cost of taking small groups into the wilderness. This covers park fees, fuel, food and equipment costs.
There is also opportunity to visit Botswana to partake in a Wildlife Photography Workshop or a safari. People travelling to Botswana will be able to meet some of the students first hand to gauge the effectiveness of the project.
Get in touch with us to see how you can help.
Thanks for your support!
