The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust was born from one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust was established more than 40 years ago and is best known for its Orphans' Project, the first and most successful elephant orphan rescue and rehabilitation program in the world.
The Sheldrick Trust is a pioneering conservation organisation, dedicated to the protection of wildlife and the preservation of habitats in East Africa. Working across Kenya, their projects include anti-poaching, safe guarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness, addressing animal welfare issues, providing veterinary assistance to animals in need, rescuing and hand rearing elephant and rhino orphans, along with other species that can ultimately enjoy a quality of life in wild terms when grown.
They are one of the many non-profits that rely on tourism to support their work. They are in dire need of support during the Covid-19 crisis to continue their elephant orphan rescue and conservation work.

More than 80% of the world’s hungry live in tropical and subtropical regions. Facing soaring food, fuel, and fertilizer costs, farmers in the tropics need sustainable, low-input, nutritious crops. Many countries, with a total population of over 2 billion people, have ecological conditions suitable for cultivating breadfruit.
The Breadfruit Institute at the National Tropical Botanical Garden, Hawai’i, is engaged in an initiative to respond to critical global food security issues by expanding plantings of good quality breadfruit varieties in tropical regions.
The Institute is a member of the Alliance to End Hunger, a coalition of 90 corporations, non-profit organizations, universities, individuals, and religious groups, working together to create real change for hungry people. Since the launch of the Global Hunger Initiative in 2009, more than 100,000 breadfruit trees have been sent to 44 countries.
