“The SAWC meets with donors and partners in Europe”
With the support of the Southern African Wildlife College Trust, the SAWC CEO, Theresa Sowry and Executive Manager Marketing and Fundraising Jeanné Poultney, conduct an annual trip to Europe to meet up with current and po- tential donors and supporters as well as with some of the College’s valued partners. And what a fast- paced and mutually fruitful 2017 trip it proved to be.
On 17 May, Theresa and Jeanné left South Africa for Frankfurt where they met with KfW and KfW Stiftung as well as with SAWC ambassador Charly Gräf.
From there they headed off to Zürich to meet with Friends of African Wildlife founders Christoph and Bettina Weber as well as with other trustees and supporters before leaving for Amsterdam. In Amsterdam they met with various friends and ambassadors of the College, the Dioraphte Foundation and with the University of Amsterdam.
The last leg of the trip included a visit to London where they met with the Rufford Foundation, the Tusk Trust, the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry as well as with IFAW and Oxford University before returning home on 27 May.
