A$1 million to IAPF Akashinga Rangers
Published on: 22 February, 2023
The Judith Neilson Foundation has awarded a A$1 million grant to the International Anti-Poaching Foundation (IAPF), which will be used to strengthen its ‘Akashinga – Nature Protected by Women’ program in Zimbabwe. The program, which has been a catalyst for change across the region, focuses on social impact to achieve conservation at scale, with the empowerment of women central to its strategy.
“Akashinga’s strong focus on supporting marginalised women in rural areas, alongside delivering infrastructure upgrades for healthcare, education and clean water are vital for community led conservation having impact at scale. The women of Akashinga have proven this and I am excited to be supporting them as they expand their work in Africa.” Judith Neilson
