We are delighted to reveal that the grant from the @azuraretreats trip to Mozambique, raised from our 2019 Safari Auction, will go toward The Rainbow Fund, the first registered charity of its kind in Mozambique. The Fund supports a variety of social and environmental projects large and small from building schools to environmental protection initiatives. The Rainbow Fund has a dedicated environmentalist and community officer at Azura, and works alongside the National Park and local communities wherever they can to protect and enhance the environment on which they depend. The Rainbow Fund supports special event days such as Christmas Day, Children’s Day, Environment Day and Women’s Day by holding events that are designed to educate and uplift children and their families.
At Azura Benguerra, the funds collected from the Rainbow Fund initiative built Azura’s first school which now has more than 400 children in education compared to 40 when it first started, as well as teachers’ housing blocks.
Thank you to everyone involved, from those who bid so generously in the auction to those on the ground in Mozambique and their amazing hard work.
