Mission Statement

Our goal is to create sustainable change - and have long-term impact in the spheres of both conservation and community upliftment. We believe that by working to grow wildlife resilient communities, that are healthy, educated, and have access to opportunities, we can break the poverty cycle and thus impact the poaching coming out of rural areas.

Description

Nourish NPO has a holistic approach to poverty and community development. By incorporating conservation education and economic empowerment through our business incubator and education centers, we strive to fight poaching through fighting poverty.
Nourish has been running since 2011 in a village on the border of the Greater Kruger Park area, to try and bridge the gap between community and conservation, as well as bringing tourists into our area to experience the Shangaan culture.
We have a variety of programs that range from Early Childhood Development, Farming, after school care, conservation education and field trips, feeding schemes, animal outreaches as well as a tourism pillar that focuses on community tours.

The Nourish Eco Village Internship in Agricultural Enterprise Development in Africa provides a unique opportunity to work directly with the local community on agri-processing and agro-ecology methods. The opportunity to work with staff directly in the field ensures hands-on learning in a context-rich environment. Further, the internship's on-line modules provide a structured format to conduct research, design and implement a project that meets both the community's needs while complementing existing and desired skill sets, and reflect on the project outcomes and tie to the sustainable development goals. The supportive work environment promotes continual learning and growth and the incredibly warm and welcoming team makes the stay a dream. The immersive experience allows for true connection with the local culture and facilitates weekend exploring of the beautiful Greater Kruger and beyond.
