When we saw that an intact pristine fynbos farm was threatened by potential agricultural expansion 21 years ago – you, our donors, stepped in to help. This purchase with the help of Fauna and Flora International, saw the birth of Flower Valley Conservation Trust.
When we realised that irresponsible and unsustainable harvesting was not being monitored, and threatened the Cape Floristic Region, you – our donor – became involved.
When we realised the need to help provide good quality and access to Early Childhood Development services for children in the Overstrand, you – our donor – didn’t hesitate to support.
When we realised that the threat of invasive alien plants in the Overberg continued to grow, and we offered our assistance to our region’s land users, you – our donor – chose to help.
For every need identified in and among our Fynbos communities (like our Feed a Child campaign) – you’ve joined hands with us to make things better.
And in the future, as we work to ensure a Fynbos-Filled Future for Life and Livelihoods, we know you’ll be there. With great admiration for your support, I thank you for these past 21 years.
