SACET Annual Review 2010

SACET was set up by WWF South Africa as an independent capital fund to give long term security to the Southern African Wildlife College. At its launch in 1999 we set an ambitious fundraising target. At the end of the 2010 financial year we are happy to report that with the support of loyal and new donors this year, we are tantalisingly close to our first “mini-target” of R20 million.


We have pleasure in presenting you with our 2010 Southern African Conservation Education Trust (SACET) Annual Review.

SACET was set up by WWF South Africa as an independent capital fund to give long term security to the Southern African Wildlife College. At its launch in 1999 we set an ambitious fundraising target. At the end of the 2010 financial year we are happy to report that with the support of loyal and new donors this year, we are tantalisingly close to our first “mini-target” of R20 million.

To add impetus to our fundraising drive, the SACET Trustees have thought it wise to fund the services of a fundraiser for SACET and the Wildlife College. The fundraiser will be in close contact with our SACET donors and strengthen our communications with you in the years to come.

We hope you will enjoy this report and the snapshot it provides of the year’s developments at the College. A number of them were made possible by funding from SACET including the updating of the curriculum of the College’s Level 2 Conservation Qualification and General Assistant Skills Programme and the development of the College Field Guide course. Then of course there were the SACET Scholarships which were awarded to the following deserving students for 2010: James Mwanza (Zambia),Lameck Mumba (Zambia) and Kufundada Zhou (Zimbabwe).Trevor Silwamba (Zambia) and Richard Menyatswe (South Africa/Co-sponsored) also took up the SACET scholarships they were awarded at the end of 2008. The SACET Trustees salute these students, the inspiration and leadership of the College staff and the progress the College continues to make.
