Calendar 2020: One gift - many receivers

This year we are again receiving valuable support from the SHARE FOR SMILES association. They are also selling their now ever-popular photo calendars in aid of our projects in Southern Africa. With the proceeds, we can finance another education centre in Botswana – and thus make an important contribution to the protection of nature and wildlife.

Twelve impressions from various African countries, imposing landscapes and rare wild animals awaken not only a wanderlust but also a feeling for the significance of this unique nature. With the Africa calendar, our colleagues from SHARE FOR SMILES offer individuals as well as companies a meaningful gift. And this starts with environmentally friendly production, climate-neutral printing and includes the integration project of the Lebenshilfe Werkstätten der Region 10 GmbH.

Social gift with meaning

We have been cooperating with the non-profit organisation from Bavaria since 2014. Just under a year ago, we were able to open the Botshelo Trust Learning Centre after a successful collaboration. The SFS Africa calendars will now help us to build an aid and environmental education centre for children and young people in Matsaudi.

The small village with about 1,000 inhabitants is located in the Okavango Delta, on the Thamalakane River and along the main road leading to the Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park. In other words, another area where people and wildlife meet or share a limited habitat. In these Wildlife Contact Areas we support the local people with education and development programmes. We want to create foundations that enable people to live a good life in harmony with nature. In our SAVE education centres, species conservation and environmental protection are therefore an integral part of the curriculum. Further information on our Education for Conservation programme can be found here.

You can order the Africa calendars directly via the SHARE FOR SMILES website.
