Southern African Wildlife College Graduation 2015

In December we attended the Graduation Ceremony of the Southern African Wildlife College at Orpen Gate, Kruger. The foundation has sponsored Francis Chitsa from the Lake Chivero Recreational Park in Zimbabwe. He brilliantly finished the course for the Higher Certificate with distinction. We are all extremely proud of him and will for sure visit him in Zimbabwe.


Francis’ goals: "My goals are to help and campaign for conservation to every citizen. To help keep all the kingdoms of life available so that none should become extinct during my watch."

We wish to thank our donors and hope you will join us to sponsor a student for 2016. Special thanks to the Berglund family.

JOIN US: Adopt a student at the Southern African Wildlife College


The adopt-a-student programme allows corporations or individuals to support people already in the field of conservation who are unable to further their studies due to a lack of funds. Their dedication is already established and their abilities have been recognized; they simply need help to further their studies. Once trained these students will return to their countries or reserves in which they operate able to implement new techniques in protected area management, anti-poaching, fire management, community-based natural resource management. 

Donate to the Transboundary Conservation Foundation in Stockholm here.

Your donation will be transferred directly to the Southern African Wildlife College (SAWC). If you would like to be contacted by the student you are supporting, the SAWC will send you regular and detailed updates on the progress and development of your student. If your donation is not project specific, the Transboundary Conservation Foundation will use your donation, where it is needed most at the SAWC. Of course we will keep you up to date on the project your donation has been chosen to support. The Transboundary Conservation Foundation and the Southern African Wildlife College, will confirm that your donation has been received.

You will be invited to the Graduation Ceremony at the College at Orpen Gate in the Krugerpark. 

The total cost is USD 3400 per year

Feel free to contact us if you wish more information.
