AFRICAN WILDLIFE FOUNDATION
The African Wildlife Foundation's mission is direct: to work together with the people of Africa to ensure the wildlife and wild lands of Africa endure forever. "AWF is the leading international conservation organisation focused exclusively on Africa, and for over fifty years the key to our success has been creative partnerships. In the past year we have worked with respected corporate leaders such as Disney and Starbucks, as well as smaller yet equally innovative businesses like Alex Woo jewellery and L*Space designer swimwear. These collaborations were tailored to fit the respective partner's brand and target audience and included promotion through events, the web, African Geographic Magazine and in print and e-communications distributed globally. A partnership with AWF sends a strong message about your company or brand's commitment to the environment and improving rural livelihoods in Africa. It also gives your organisation the opportunity to play a meaningful role in safeguarding awe-inspiring and threatened wildlife like rhinoceroses, lions, and elephants. Whatever your interest, our work in fourteen African countries gives your company a range of projects to choose from as a creative way to increase brand awareness, build consumer loyalty and, of course, drive incremental sales. Some exciting AWF initiatives that your company might consider supporting are shown below. Please visit www.awf.org/partners for more information on how respected companies and brands have advanced the mission of the African Wildlife Foundation while engaging the support of consumers worldwide. To discuss ways your company or brand might develop a cause-marketing partnership or sponsorship program with AWF, please contact us". Contact: Daniel McGahey.

BANANA APPEAL
By supporting the Banana Appeal, sponsors can help provide one million meals to hungry children in Zululand, South Africa - and impress their suppliers, motivate their staff and win more business: cost £60,000. Banana Appeal has provided over a million school meals to malnourished children and AIDS orphans over the last five years through its food to school schemes in Zululand, South Africa. These schemes not only feed the children but also help many attend school, where they gain a vital education. Today the charity supplies over 1,600 meals daily through schools, providing 1,100 children with fruit each day and over five hundred children with a hot meal of rice and beans (or similar). The charity is on a mission to deliver one million school meals a year, to help the forgotten children and orphans of Zululand. This may sound expensive, but, at only 6p per day, £60,000 will pay for a million meals of fruit. At only 10p per day to feed a hot meal, £100,000 provides a million school meals of rice and beans (or similar). Over 2.5 million South African children are orphans and it is predicted that 32% of South African children will be orphans by 2015 due to AIDS. Today South Africa has the largest HIV population on earth. Each orphan is left to a terrible fate, often in abject poverty. By providing malnourished children with food security at school, Banana Appeal can help remove them from begging or worse, allow them to attend school and give the hope of a better future. It also operates numerous schemes through SavetheZulu.org, including child sponsorship. "We are in the process of setting up a sports academy in Zululand and need £10k for this - and our ultimate goal is to set up the world's largest child sanctuary, caring for thousands of children. This project will cost £2.3 million. Our work has been featured on radio in the UK, South Africa and Canada, in papers and magazines in the UK and South Africa and on UK TV. We seek private and corporate sponsors to help expand our work. Please contact our founder Kevin Allen at kev@BananaAppeal.org or on 0783 773 1131". Contact: Kevin Allen.

THE EXPEDITION PROJECT
The EXPEDITION Project facilitates sustainable social and environmental change. This is achieved through annual overland expeditions that take the form of volunteer tourism, during which assessment and research is done. Challenges, opportunities and needs are identified in order to promote successes and connect community projects with organisations that can provide the resources and skills that they need. In the process, a network that links community projects to one another is also created. This, together with annual follow-up assessments, creates a system of accountability and a platform for sustained growth. Contact: Roger Wynn-Dyke. Address: 30 Landford Road, Putney SW15 1AG.

FILMAID INTERNATIONAL UK
Communities in crisis need knowledge and empowerment. FilmAid provides both, to millions of people suffering the effects of war, poverty, displacement or disaster. Film screenings provide a way to reach many people at once, overcoming literacy boundaries, bringing forth information where it is needed and inspiring hope where it is lacking. Since 1999, FilmAid has worked in partnership with other global aid organizations to bring critical information to more than a million people, in places as diverse as Macedonia, Kenya, Tanzania, Afghanistan and the US Gulf Coast. FilmAid engages communities to shape the messages most needed for their survival and strength. The charity works with communities to create films and videos in their own voice, and to show these films in the most impactful and appropriate settings. FilmAid screenings range from intimate discussion of forty people to large outdoor screenings, reaching tens of thousands at one time. FilmAid UK is looking for sponsorship for fundraising events and more. Contact: Vicky Suzman. Address: 11 Thurloe Square, London SW7 2TA. Tel.: 0207 581 6546. E-mail:

GENERATION FOR CHANGE AND DEVELOPMENT
Generation for Change and Development (GENCAD) is a UK-registered charity committed to helping communities experiencing extreme poverty in the Horn of Africa. Its aim is to work with partner organisations and communities on programmes and projects which have strong poverty alleviation objectives, such as: education; skills training; health care provisions; and income generating projects that empower the most vulnerable and needy communities.

The charity works with local partners in assessing needs and targeting assistance to the most deserving projects with a strong poverty alleviation component.

GENCAD organises an annual charity walk in July (Step Up for Africa Sponsored Walk) along Regent's Canal.

    AFC/0003     DRAMATIC NEED
The Dramatic Need Piet Patsa Community Arts Centre (PPCAC) is named after a beloved local teacher, Mr. Patsa, who worked closely with Dramatic Need for several years. The facility was completed in 2010 and now hosts six workshops for children and youth weekly, as well as community outreach programmes with local hospices and schools. Many of these children are familiar with the expression of emotion through violence; be it sexual, domestic, ethnic or gang-related aggression. Providing a means of self-expression that is non-violent is one of Dramatic Need’s major aims. The PPCAC also runs a full-time teacher training programme for unemployed youth, with two former trainees now members of the centre's staff. Sponsorship support and donations are welcomed by this non-profit organisation. Contact: via

AFC/006 THE VIRTUAL DOCTORS
The Virtual Doctors is a charity which provides a free telemedicine service, utilising mobile phone and internet technology, for Clinical Officers located in rural and remote areas of Zambia. "Our hand-held devices offer remote connection with our volunteer medical professionals in the UK, using our bespoke telemedicine software. The Clinical Officers upload case files, select an area of specialism in a dropdown bar, which the selected UK medical professional can review, and subsequently respond offering diagnostic advice. Clinical Officers are trained professionals but are not as qualified as doctors. Some clinics have huge catchment areas and people must travel long distances to reach them, only to be referred on to a hospital even further away. Our service is helping the Clinical Officers to learn and have the confidence to treat patients on site locally rather than having to refer to distant hospitals. The service is economically scalable, tried and tested. We have expansion plans to expand our reach beyond the current twenty health clinics and two hospitals in Zambia - our goal is to be delivering the service into 100 sites in rural Zambia and we will have introduced a trial into another sub-Saharan country by the end of 2018. We rely upon the generosity of others for 100% of our funding and your support would enable us to expand our reach into new areas and help more patients. We are keen to hear from individuals and organisations who would be interested in helping us to fund this expansion. It costs approximately £1,000 to set up and run the service for twelve months in each rural health centre. If you or your company would like to get involved, please contact rosbird@virtualdoctors.org". Contact: Huw Jones. Address: Sussex Innovation Centre, University of Sussex, Falmer, Brighton BN1 9SB.

AFC/0007 WILDLANDS CONSERVATION TRUST
Bio-diversity in KwaZulu-Natal, indeed in South Africa as a whole, is under severe threat. Recognising this threat, the Wildlands Conservation Trust aims to reverse this trend by developing innovative programmes to conserve biodiversity. These include support for both formal and informal conservation. Some of the programmes comprise conservation-based community development projects – so that previously disadvantaged communities can take ownership of biodiversity preservation and use it as an empowerment tool. There are also programmes that act as catalysts for the protection of threatened species and to foster increased conservation awareness amongst the people of South Africa. Concerned corporate organisations can help in a number of ways, for instance via sponsorship support of the Trust's events programme. Contact: Sponsorship Department. Address: PO Box 1138, Hilton 3245, South Africa. Tel.: +27(0)33 343-2669. Fax: +27(0)33 343-1976. E-mail: trust@kznwildlife.com.
