The AfriCat CCCP is dedicated to empowering communal farming communities in carnivore-conflict zones to better manage and protect their livestock, ultimately mitigating conflict and reducing large carnivore persecution.
Through Human-Wildlife Conflict Mitigation and Environmental Education programmes, AfriCat has contributed to uplifting communal farming communities since 1997.
Needs are identified and thanks to dedicated donors and sponsors, 20 plus nocturnal kraals have been built to date, a larger number upgraded as well as improvements to rural schools in the !Khoa di //Hoas and Ehirovipuka Conservancies.
One such school in the Ehirovipuka Conservancy, the Onguta Primary School, which offers a pre-school class (ages 5-6 yrs.), and grades 1-3 to approximately 50 – 60 students, comprises three tents as classrooms, sand floors and a metal trunk for storage; extreme heat and dust makes for a less than ideal learning environment.
