INSPIRE THE FUTURE

Our first promotional video to share our plans to:

Support community heroes
Tell their inspirational stories
Develop the paths for others to follow in their footsteps 

THE FIRST STEP

With the support of Lance’s friends and family, and the Tuesday Trails community and their Pint for a Purpose initiative with Jack Black – we took the first steps to Inspiring The Future.

THE WORLD NEEDS...

  • large, protected biodiverse areas to protect the planet from global warming and species extinction – supported by broad and robust economic beneift models that extent beyond conservation and tourism.
  • young people to connect deeply to their natural world and to live with it not purely from it.
  • a generation that is ready for the world that awaits them, with a strong foundation in new technologies and approaches to problem solving that have evolved significantly from those of the generation before them.

TIME TO INSPIRE

The Amakhala Nature Club exposes interested students from the local communities to the natural world and prepares them for potential careers in conservation.  Four students won a writing competition earning them the chance to assist on a rhino collaring procedure, and the incredible experience of a helicopter flight over the reserve. This experience is the seed of the campaign which will:

  • assist Siseko with getting his remote Pilots Licence so that he can do conservation work on the reserve
  • set up Zolani to host a new Drone and Coding Club to expose youngsters of the community to 4IR technologies, and provide a path for them to play a role in the future of conservation and agriculture
  • support the Amakhala Game Reserve and community through the Covid-19 pandemic
  • provide support to the Conservation Landscape Initiative and their exciting work
  • build and equip computer labs at the schools, supportted by extra curricular maths and science prohrammes – building a ath towards coding learnerships and bursaries

SISEKO AND ZOLANI

Siseko Mayinje and Zolani Witbooi are great examples of local community members who have taken advantage of the opportunities presented to them, and can now inspire future generations.  Inspire the Future sets out to reward their efforts by assisting them with new opportunities, that show and prepare the way for those following in their footsteps.

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED

  • Visit Amakhala as a corporate or social group, make a family trip of it. Meet the people taking conservation forward, learn abut their work.  Maybe you can even get to assist them with a rhino collaring procedure.
  • We have a dedicated schools programme, where students will be taken through a practical introduction to drones in conservation experience, with the view to instituting a STEAM learning programme on their return to school. Please take a look at our technology and training partner to get a sense of what Inspire The Future is going to be able to offer Siseko, Zolani, the Drone Club and schools who visit https://inspire.africa/
