As a fundraiser and grant-giving organisation, Community Conservation Fund Africa (CCFA) is constantly searching for ways to raise funds to support the community projects they have identified and support on the African continent.
For this reason, CCFA will host an international event at the Royal Geographical Society in London, hosting master South African storyteller Michael Charton. This Capetonian’s enthusiasm for the story of South Africa lured him away from his corporate career. He is known to have a passion for South Africa’s history and portrays a balanced view through providing a fresh new perspective on notoriously complex topics.
This acclaimed storyteller also aims to make South Africa’s incredible history more accessible. Charton tells the human story through the eyes of historic figures and protagonists like Mzilikazi Khumalo, Paul Kruger,
Cecil John Rhodes, Jan Smuts and Nelson Mandela.
He has an ability to invite his audiences into the shoes of his characters, highlighting the biases prevalent to South Africa’s history.
After the talk, titled My Father’s Coat, guests can take part in an art auction. Everyone attending the event will be included in a lucky draw to win a gorilla tracking experience in Rwanda.
CCFA will use the funding to support a number of projects. In addition to the new partnership supporting the Indalo Nursery, CCFA supports projects in Kenya, Uganda, Namibia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Zambia and Rwanda.
These projects are all aimed at empowering local communities, enabling them to become leaders in driving sustainable wildlife management systems on the ground.
Keen to attend and do your bit for conservation? The event takes place on 29 January 2020 at the Royal Geographical Society in London.
