HANS HOHEISEN CHARITABLE TRUST
Hans Hoheisen Charitable Trust supported Flower Valley Conservation Trust in its continued work across the landscape. The Trust was founded by Hans Hoheisen, who showed a great love for the environment during his life. His generosity and wisdom have also been highlighted as traits that facilitated his major conservation efforts in South Africa and abroad. While he died in 2003, his conservation work continues through his Trust today. The Trust is managed by Nedbank Private Wealth.
The Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) is responsible for managing Australia’s overseas aid programme, in line with Australia’s national interest. The objective of the aid programme is to assist developing countries to reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development. AusAID assisted the Flower Valley Early Learning Centre, by supporting the building of the classroom which today houses up to 20 children aged two to six. www.ausaid.gov.au
EarthVoice is a not-for-profit centre for restoring the human relationship to the environment through education. It has provided Flower Valley Conservation Trust with invaluable technical assistance in programme development. www.greenlivingnetwork.org
Fauna and Flora International established the Arcadia Fund in 1998 to purchase non-protected areas of high biodiversity value that are under immediate threat. In 1999, a major donation from the Arcadia Fund, with support from The Conservation Foundation, The Countryside Restoration Trust and a concerned individual, enabled FFI to help purchase Flower Valley. Through FFI’s partnerships, Flower Valley has received invaluable funding and technical support.
The Fauna and Flora International Global Business Partnership aims to work with leading multinationals in the commercial and industrial sector that have a significant impact on biodiversity. Flower Valley has benefited greatly through the FFI/British American Tobacco Biodiversity Partnership, which was founded on a mutual interest in exploring and developing the role of business in conservation and management of biodiversity.
FRIENDS OF THE FYNBOS
Generous donations have been received from members of FFI and from Friends of the Fynbos. These personal ‘votes of confidence’ helped to inspire and encourage us in our everyday work, reminding us that what we are doing in our own small valley on the southern tip of Africa, is important to people all over the world.
