In partnership with the Timbavati Foundation in Kruger Park, Isenberg’s goal is to establish a computer lab in all thirty highschools served by the Timbavati Foundation. This March, we hope to contribute four new labs, enabling us to reach a total of ten computer labs established by the Isenberg School of Management. We are gratefully accepting used laptops* and will clear them prior to departure. As long as they work, we will put them to good use!
Nature and Conservation (Black Mamba Project)
This March, we will donate old cell phones* (ideally smart phone for the camera feature) to the Black Mamba Anti-poaching unit. The objectives of the Black Mamba project are to protect rhinos through boots on the ground efforts and also by acting as role models in their communities. Black Mambas want their communities to understand that the benefits of rhino conservation are greater than poaching, and are committed to protecting the wildlife, educating their communities, and instilling pro-environmental values.
Welfare and Sustainability (Veggie Garden at Ekhuruleni Center for Orphans and Vulnerable Children)
This March, we will return to the Ekhurukeni Center for Orphans and Vulnerable Children, where we hope to make another meaningful contribution. This orphanage cares for two hundred and sixty children but only receives funding to feed fifty of them. This year, we plan to spend two days at the orphanage planting a huge sustainable garden. Upon completion of this garden, we want to donate a large netted cover to protect the crops. Isenberg students have opened a GoFundMe account to raise funds for this cause and we are gratefully accepting donations.
