Reducing human-elephant conflict can only be obtained by involving local communities and empowering and educating local people. By building partnerships with schools, we can join forces and work together to share elephant conservation awareness and sustainability tools and knowledge. HERD has set up such a partnership with the Mpisi school in the neighborhood of Hoedspruit.
Before the Covid-19 pandemic, 1 in 3 children in South-Africa suffered from malnutrition. That number has grown since the pandemic. Many of the children at the Mpisi primary school have their only meal of the day at school, coming from impoverished homes where parents can’t always provide adequately for their families. 


Together with educational and sustainable activities, this program ensures the children with nutrition food bars to ensure healthy and well-fueled minds and bodies. To create awareness the students are involved in fun elephant-related activities. By providing school material and through elephant picture colouring the children are able to connect with these magnificent animals in a positive and engaging way. The created art can then be shared with their loved ones at home. 

  • provide the kids with nutrition food bars
  • provide the students with school material
  • involve students in fun elephant-related activities
  • share awareness to the species
  • help implement a community garden for the children to enjoy at lunchtime
  • grow a community vegetable garden
  • help with rain harvesting use and supply for the garden


By supporting this fundraiser you can help providing school material for the children to make their own ele-art creation so that awareness for wildlife can grow. You also support the students future as they learn how to create a waterwise garden, how to contribute to recycling, how to grow a vegetable garden or do rain harvesting, we hope that they can take this knowledge home and practice to develop good green habits so this can have a positive impact on their lives and families.




World Food Day!
Malnutrition is causing the irreversible loss of physical and cognitive ability among children all around the world. When we visited the Herd Trust, we also went to the Mpisi school in the neighboorhood to learn about the actions Herd undertakes to help children as food programmes are under strain and in need of creative and sustainable interventions.
Among other initiatives Herd supports the Nkosi Superbar initiative initiated by Wellspring NPO, a non-profit drive to help businesses and communities take a stand against child malnutrition.
Today our fund has been able to donate 100€ towards this Nkosi Superbar Initiative!
With this donation we can cover the Nkosi Bar expenses for about 19 children during one month.
These donations come directly from our Izindlovu fundraisers and are donated to the specific projects for the full 100% !
Your support does matter!
The Nkosi supplementary bars are packed with essential nutrition crucial for the development of children under the age of 6, and are provided to Mpisi School on a monthly basis. The pupils will be weighed before the programme is started to establish a base line to determine the effectiveness of the bar going forward.
The children are currently receiving Nkosi Bars three times per week and there are 170 children in Grade 1. It would be great if you would consider donationg to our fundraiser so that we can provide more children with Nkosi bars.

Elephant Conservation
Help us cover the continuous running costs of the Jabulani Elephants, a unique herd for integrating orphans and the HERD elephant orphanage. The unusual family structure of the Jabulani Herd, the majority of which are orphans themselves, is a unique solution for orphaned baby elephants that vitally need to find a second herd.

Environmental Education
Elephant & rhino conservation also involves human environment education as we both share the same land and nature. Moreover, as more and more wildlife and elephant habitats are used for human development, educating the future generation about environmental conservation is crucial.
