SAVE the Future
Only those who love nature, will protect it.
The only way to protect our planet is through long-term and sustainable actions. Therefore, SAVE promotes environmental education of children in its project countries. They often know very little about the wilderness in their home country. Predators are seen as a threat not worth being protected. SAVE supports environmental education projects, so that the children discover the unique treasures of their countries and learn how to conserve them.
SAVE and the famous “cheetah man” Matto Barfuß cooperate closely on a very special project. Matto writes and illustrates children's books about stories of lions, giraffes and elephants. It is our goal to present this book to as many children as possible around the National Parks. More
The Children's Center is located in northern Botswana and looks after abused, traumatized, orphaned and HIV-infected children. Food, creative stimulation and psycho-social care are provided to give these children a chance for a better future. Hereby, emphasis lies on environmental education and child-appropriate HIV-education. More
Also for 2012, SAVE has big plans! Currently, in the planning stages is another children's aid project based in Maun, which is aimed at all the forgotten children around the nearby national parks. With all the positive experiences we’ve had in our Bana Ba Ditlou project, we hope to help another 700 children to a better life in rural areas. More
Progress in developing countries is lasting only when the strength comes from its own people. Therefore, SAVE trains the native peoples in the project areas: With research grants and environmental formations. They become conservationists and can form a better future in their country with their newly acquired knowledge. More
