A Conservation Spirit

The Grumeti Fund is enhancing the quality of education by providing scholarships to youth from local communities. We are teaching local students the importance of conservation from a young age which will change the future generation.

 

Saving the Ecosystem

The 350,000 acre Grumeti concession forms a crucial part of the Serengeti ecosystem. In addition to rejuvenating and preserving the landscape, the Grumeti Fund works with government, local communities and other stakeholders on various conservation projects.

 

One team, one victory

Grumeti Fund works to maintain, build and strengthen close relationships with all relevant government, conservation and local community stakeholders that operate within the Serengeti ecosystem, thereby enabling us to effectively carry out our work.

 

Research Driven Decisions

In order to better understand ecological systems and to measure the effectiveness of our community, and conservation work, we invest significantly in research and monitoring programs with the aim of maintaining long-term records of changes in key variables.

 

Women Empowerment

Where thousands of girls have no access to quality education in the rural parts of Tanzania, the Grumeti Fund through your donations has turned the wheel to empowering girls and women in the 21 villages surrounding the concession.

 

Conservation at Heart

The Grumeti Fund employs a team of game scouts that come from the local communities bordering the concession. Our scouts undergo continuous training to maintain high standards of efficiency and safety.

 

What does it mean to face the future?

Looking back on when we started and where we are now, we see the brightest future in conservation. Grumeti Fund is devoted to conserving the pristine Serengeti ecosystem.
