Jenman African Safaris is breaking the taboo of menstruation in Zimbabwe

Jenman African Safaris’ Grow Africa Foundation has partnered with Subz Pads to bring much needed attention to the taboo topic of menstruation in Zimbabwe by providing girls at Dingani Primary School in Hwange with washable sanitary pads and panties.

One out of ten teenage girls throughout Africa’s most rural regions misses a considerable amount of school each year, as much as 25 % annually, due to the humiliation and stigma related to menstruation. As they do not have access to or cannot afford basics such as sanitary pads, they are forced to improvise by using mattress foam, rags, feathers, leaves and even newspaper which is not only humiliating but ineffective. Their menstrual hygiene impacts these young girls’ education, health and their overall future.

Jenman African Safaris’ responsible tourism initiative Grow Africa has joined the fight to give these girls a chance to stay in class. A girl’s period should not hold her back from her future.
Jenman African Safaris is aiming to raise R 75 000 to supply each of Dingani Primary School’s Grade 6 and 7 girls with a set of Subz panties and pads on an on-going and sustainable basis, as well as providing educational workshops.

Jenman Raises Funds for Zimbabwean Wildlife Conservation

Tour operator Jenman African Safaris is donating $ 5 to the Conservation Wildlife Fund (CWF) for every person who travels on the Botswana Wildlife Breakaway tour. Jenman has now raised $ 1590 in the last months.

The CWF works together with the wildlife authorities of Zimbabwe and tourism players to raise awareness, adequately resource local authorities, and promote the sustainable use and management of the wildlife.

Jenman African Safaris’ eco philosophy is to give back to communities and conservation in southern Africa. In 2017, they will continue to raise money for the CWF in order to protect wild animals in and around Hwange National Park which is situated near Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.

The Botswana Wildlife Breakaway is a 15-day lodge safari through Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Namibia. Guests enjoy game drives in Hwange National Park, a Mokoro excursion in the Okavango Delta, game viewing in Chobe National Park and on the Chobe River and many more. International guests are able to invest in Zimbabwe’s conservation efforts in this way.

JENMAN SUPPORTS CWF IN ZIMBABWE

Jenman African Safaris is supporting the Conservation & Wildlife Fund (CWF) by donating 5 USD for every person on a scheduled or guided group safari that stays at Elephant’s Eye, Hwange. The CWF in Zimbabwe collaborates for conservation through tourism, running projects in Hwange National Park with a long-term focus on sustainability of communities, wildlife and habitats.

Africa’s wildlife is in crisis. In the last 3 years, southern African countries have lost half their elephant populations; tens of thousands of wild lions killed in three decades, and in recent years, a large number of rhinos poached illegally.

The CWF works together with stakeholders, environmental and conservation groups and local communities to raise awareness and provide tools for the management of Zimbabwe’s precious wildlife resources. This year alone, the CWF has supported conservation projects like vulture conservation, elephant collaring, anti-poaching, borehole maintenance, and drought relief for locals and animals alike.

Jenman African Safaris knows that conservation is a battle that cannot be won alone and are supporting the CWF because we believe it’s important that unspoiled wilderness in Africa needs to be protected. Eco-tourism is a strong facet in our company philosophy, and we want to support projects that focus on practical conservation work in local communities and local wildlife
