Rhino Notching in celebration of World Environmental Day.

Rhino Notching in celebration of World Environmental Day.

To celebrate this year we teamed up with Sun City, Conservation Kids, WRSA and the Pilanesberg Wildlife trust to create a memorable experience for some learners.
On Friday the 3 June 10 of the top grade 10 learners from Sedibelo Secondary School in Moruleng were brought to Pilanesberg National Park to take part in a Rhino Notching experience.
It was sad to hear that most of these learners that are all from the local community have never even been into the Pilanesberg before, making this experience even more special for them. It was so rewarding to see the smiles on their faces and share their excitement. Thank you to everyone that helped make this possible

A great start to the new year- Mosia Family gets a new home.

We run a number of CSI projects in the area around Pilanesberg doing what we can to help the community. We have just completed our first project for the year and our hearts are happy to have been able to help someone in need.

In September 2019, Ms Selina Ntebo approached Mankwe GAMETRACKERS on behalf of the Mosia family – Ms Margrette (65) and son, Kenny (40).  Both mother and son are unemployed, unregistered (no form of identification) and Kenny has a chronic illness.
We visited the family and discovered that the conditions were totally unbearable they lived in a one room shack that was not even enough to protect them from the elements and they slept on the floor even though they are both sickly and Kenney disabled.
They had no source of income although both were eligible for government grants. They therefore had to depend on their neighbors especially Ms Ntebo and the community at large for their next meal, the cleaning of their house, lights and everything else. We decided to take on the task of building them a two bedroom house.
The house was officially handed over to the family on the 17th of January 2020 when the community, ward councillor and many others came to share in the celebration of the Mosia family receiving their new home. 
A big thank-you to Sun City, Spar, Engen Garage and Kwa Maritane for donating food and other items to help make the Mosias’ new house feel like a home. The Meyer of Moses Kotane Local Municipality was also present he pledged to ensure that the family is registered in order for them to receive  government grants and sort out their electricity.
