and wonderful local NGOs
WONDERFUL LOCAL NGOs (non-governmental organizations)
I would like to recommend local non-profits that are doing wonderful work. Giraffe Conservation Foundation works in conservation in Africa, Decent Living and KUSARD in Kenya, and Education for Hope in Sierra Leone. I know the Directors of all of them, am on the African Boards and know your funds will be wisely used and with impact.
Giraffe Conservation Foundation (Africa)
The Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF) is the only NGO in the world that concentrates solely on the conservation and management of giraffe in the wild throughout Africa. You can even ‘adopt’ a giraffe. Many species of giraffe are endangered, please help: https://giraffeconservation.org/
