The Foundation supports vulnerable children within primary schools as well as AIDS orphans through scholarships and funding for secondary schooling. We also work with schools surrounding Hwange National Park, currently focusing on two primary schools, the Hwange Main Camp Primary School and Manbanje Primary School, which previously received the least assistance and were in the most need of support.


African Bush Camps Foundation recognizes education as an integral part of sustainable development, in developing attitudes, skills and knowledge to allow communities to make informed decisions for their own benefit.

UNESCO states that through education one can address the social, economic, cultural and environmental problems faced by the world today.
