Campaigns & Events
Our motivation is human kindness and our inspiration the beauty of creation of which we are all a part. The Kariega Foundation and all our partners and friends stand resolute in our commitment to leave a legacy of rejuvenation for our people, land and wildlife.
The Kariega Foundation, a non-profit trust, was born out of the desire to contribute to the upliftment of local communities, sustainable wildlife management and conservation. The Foundation works in collaboration with Kariega Game Reserve and the many communities surrounding the game reserve in South Africa, to achieve success in conservation, education, collaboration and community commitment.
Lindy Sutherland took over directorship of the Kariega Foundation in 2017. Today, we are in awe of how wide and how deep the Foundation's influence has become. A key reason for this is meaningful collaboration between donors, strategic partners, community members and our team.
The Kariega Foundation is guided by community and conservation leaders who take ownership of defined projects, including food support, early childhood and youth development, wildlife conservation, environmental education and enterprise development. Because of this community activation and ownership, the benefits of re-investment into conservation and the community are significant.
"Conservation is a team sport. Community engagement and rejuvenation is a team sport. We couldn’t do it without the support of people and organisations from around the world."
What We Do
Everything in nature exists in perfect harmony. The Kariega Foundation aspires to emulate a similar and mutually beneficial balance between commercial stability, community activation, sustainable wildlife management and conservation. Our diverse projects include community food support, early childhood development, youth development through sport and dance, enterprise development, education transformation, environmental education, domestic animal care and the conscious protection and preservation of our natural heritage, wild animals and plant life.
