"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much."
Culture Corporation is a sustainability agency working across Africa that specialises in aligning business, environmental and social needs. They understand the concept, that only prosperity for all builds sustainability.
Values underpin all the work that they do – for corporates, organisations and communities – whether it is a product launch into a new market, insights gathering to improve sales, an edutainment roadshow activation around water pollution, drop in centres for the elderly, or AV production for mass media and broadcast.
"Rite to Sight" was started whilst on the Holgate epic Land Rover expedition to follow the Tropic of Capricorn around the world, Gill Holgate (Mashozi) met with an elderly poor-sighted man in the remote Amazon region of South America’s Brazil.
He lived in a national park and was about to be removed from the area because officials believed with his poor sight, he may fall in the river and drown. Mashozi handed him her own pair of readers, he put them on and there were tears of joy when he could see his granddaughter clearly for the very first time. This was the start of Mashozi’s Rite to sight campaign, the distribution of ready reader spectacles to the poor sighted.
Childline South Africa is an effective non-profit organisation which works to protect children from violence and further the culture of children's rights in South Africa. Childline runs a national, 24-hour, toll-free telephone counselling service for children and adults, handling over 1 million calls annually. In addition to the Crisis Line telephone counseling service, Childline also offers services such as online counseling, training programs for continuous professional development, training on court preparation, and workshops on child law.
South Africa boasts one of the most clean water systems in the world, however due to the lack of sanitation and access in the country's rural communities the threat of water- borne disease is steadily increasing. Water filters have been shown to be the most effective interventions amongst all point-of-use water treatment methods for reducing diarrhoeal diseases. Lack of access to safe drinking water contributes to the staggering burden of diarrhoeal diseases worldwide, particularly affecting the young, the immuno-compromised and the poor. Nearly one in five child deaths – about 1.5 million each year – is due to diarrhoea.
Project Kgautswane is a project by Aqua for Life to supply approx 1,500 families (around 12,000 people) in Sekhukune, Limpopo with LifeStraw water filteration products
Rhino Art: Children’s Voices - The objective of the project is to gather the largest number of ‘Children’s Art Voices’ ever recorded in support of rhino protection and to use these ‘Hearts and Minds’ messages from the children of Africa as a worldwide call to action against rhino poaching. Please take a moment to view the "Speaking out against Rhino poaching" video below. Warning the video is graphic in its nature.
Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organisation. Their mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world's oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species. Sea Shepherd uses innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document, and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas. By safeguarding the biodiversity of our delicately balanced ocean ecosystems, Sea Shepherd works to ensure their survival for future generations.
Namibia Desert Seal Campaign. The world's largest and cruelest marine mammal slaughter of 85,000 still-nursing baby seal pups begins annually on July 1st in Namibia. For 139 days, terrified pups will be rounded up, separated from their mothers, and brutally beaten to death for their pelts - a CITES protected species, killed in a seal reserve every day just hours before tourists come to view the remaining colony. Inhumane, illegal, unsustainable and unethical, many conservation groups violently oppose the slaughter. While filming the cull is illegal, Sea Shepherd, who has a long legacy of defending seals around the world, aims to end this slaughter once and for all.
