A Poem on the Wilderness, by Maleta

Graduation ceremonies at the Youth Development Programme of Wilderness Foundation Africa are always an emotional experience for graduates, their parents and the WFA team. At a recent Siyazenzela Graduation ceremony held in Robertson, one of the graduates read out a poem she had written. This touched our hearts and we would really like to share it with you. We hope you enjoy it.

My Story: Nikita Blouw

20 Jun 2017 Pride and conservation 0

A key point of the Youth Development Programme of Wilderness Foundation Africa is to build a programme with varying degrees of impact. We begin working with large numbers of youth through the Pride and Imbewu project which reaches thousands of disadvantaged scholars per year. These trails provide an entry level introduction to environmental education and the healing power of nature; ‘planting the seed’ for a passion for wildlife and wilderness.

My Personal Trail Experience

21 Jan 2016 Pride and conservation 0

Pakamani Nombila recently joined the WFA as a Junior Report Writer and joined our Umzi Wethu youth on a trail in the Tsitsikamma area as part of his induction. Below is a blog on Pakamani’s experience on trail.For me, one of the most amazing things about being on trail and camping has to be the mornings. Being a villager almost all my life, waking up to the chanting and singing sounds of the birds in the morning reminded me of a place very close to my heart. It reminded me of home, where in the morning roosters would alert you that it was time to get up and get on with your day.
