Nourish Community Eco-Village


The goal of the Nourish Foundation is to grow resilient wildlife communities through engagement in conservation and sustainability to protect our wildlife areas. Their main aim is to create sustainable change - and have long-term impact in the spheres of both

conservation and community upliftment. By working to grow resilient communities, that are healthy, educated, and have access to opportunities, we can break the poverty cycle and thus positively impact conservation efforts in our wildlife areas. Ubuntu is an African philosophy “I am because you are” that speaks to compassion and humanity at its very core.


This project is suitable for persons over the age of 18 and is a great opportunity for curious people to join us for an immersive learning experience.


If you are interested in learning about a new culture, doing research or aiming to learn a new skill, then this project is for you.
