Empowering Communities Enabling Conservation

Africa Foundation was created in 1992 when Conservation Corporation Africa (now known as andBeyond) was founded in South Africa. A central principle of Conservation Corporation Africa's safari lodge business model was the belief that the involvement and development of communities surrounding wildlife conservation areas were essential to the success of its lodge operations. Africa Foundation (United States) and Africa Foundation (United Kingdom) work in partnership with Africa Foundation (South Africa), safari lodge operators and adjacent communities to identify, fund, build and sustain projects in four key areas: Education, Healthcare and Clean Water, Income Generating Activities and Environmental Awareness.
