The Lion Roars Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for the ongoing preservation of our natural resources and the upliftment of our community. Established in 2010, the Foundation aims to make a difference in three key areas:
• Partnering with local schools, orphanages and self-help projects on selected community initiatives
• Conservation and protection of threatened Rhinoceros populations in Southern Africa
• Conservation of the Baakens River Valley in Port Elizabeth
We've spent our first year kick-starting a number of annual fundraising and awareness campaigns to support projects in these three areas. We’re lucky to have a number of completely mad sportsmen in our team, so most of our fundraisers have involved sporting events such as golf days, cycling and running events. While awareness and fundraising are the key drivers, these events also allow us to get together with friends, family, colleagues and our broader community, build relationships and have fun.
We have also spent time building our relationships with established local conservation and community bodies, to identify the best way to apply funds raised to achieve our conservation and community goals. We are proud to work with and put our shoulders, bicycles and running shoes behind the Save the Rhino Trust, the Chipembere Foundation, the Umzi Wethu Academy and the Eastern Cape arm of the Wildlife & Environmental Society of South Africa (WESSA).
The work of our Foundation is an essential part of who we are and what we do at Lion Roars. If you would like to contribute time, money or expertise to any of our fundraising events, we’d love to hear from you.
