To coincide with the start of southern hemisphere spring in September, the Pride 'n Purpose and Ulusaba teams are gearing up for the start of Arbor Month, the perfect opportunity to go beyond the usual safari adventure and help change the lives of others.
This annual initiative is a great way for guests to become involved with many of the local communities living around the reserve and really help create a lasting impact. During their stay guests will be encouraged to buy and help plant a fruit tree in the local village of Dumphries. Guests will be able to enjoy a tour of the community before purchasing a tree and helping plant it themselves.
The overall mission is to improve quality of life by giving low-income communities fruit trees to plant near their homes. Trees are great source for all the basic elements of life - oxygen, water vapour, food, shelter, and fuel and are an efficient way to offset carbon emissions which contribute to global warming.
If you don't have time to help plant the tree during your stay, the tree can be planted on your behalf for as little as ZAR 100 (roughly £5.50/$7.25). In 2015, 49 guests joined in the planting and raised over ZAR 17,150 (£949/$1,245). In 2016, the team are hoping to branch out even further and celebrate another record-breaking year!
To ensure each guest stays involved with this project once they have returned home, the Pride 'n Purpose team will make sure to keep each individual updated on the progress of their tree and the other projects happening within the local community.
If you want to help out during Abor Month and get your hands dirty for a good cause, contact Pride 'n Purpose via email for more information firstname.lastname@example.org.
