SAVE Foundation, a registered non-profit organization, primarily focuses on the enhancement, training, and empowerment of diverse communities across Africa, all while dedicating efforts to the preservation of conservation areas and wildlife rehabilitation. Established in 2006, SAVE Foundation has expanded its reach beyond South Africa into Uganda, Namibia, and Malawi, providing support to over 30 projects. These projects encompass a wide spectrum, ranging from conservation development initiatives to sustainable community outreach programs. During the development of flagship projects in Cape Town, SAVE Foundation identified a significant challenge: the lack of funding, resources, and skills within local communities hindered their ability to offer effective education in educare centers. In response, SAVE began offering support to these centers, introducing teacher training and supplying various educational resources for the children. Recognizing the well-established fact that malnutrition and poor health can profoundly impact a child's development, SAVE Foundation embarked on a mission to address these issues, which were prevalent in disadvantaged communities. Consequently, SAVE initiated the establishment and upkeep of seven vegetable gardens, thereby providing homegrown food to five soup kitchens. This endeavor allowed the supported Educare Centers to offer two hot meals per week to over 1000 underprivileged youth. Africa is home to a rich diversity of wildlife, including some of the world's most endangered species. SAVE Foundation extends its support to wildlife conservationists who tirelessly work to rehabilitate animals and create a secure environment for those unable to return to the wild.
