Southern African Wildlife College
Since its establishment in 1996, the Southern African Wildlife College has trained more than 8000 people from 26 African countries in sustainable management of natural resources. Every year, five women holding grants from KfW Stiftung will learn to become professional rangers. Their training will focus on protecting the environment and nature as well as managing wild animals, integrating local people in their work and establishing sustainable tourism in a part of the world that is one of the richest in terms of biodiversity.
Once they have completed their training, the rangers will be given the option to work in KAZA National Park, which is mainly sponsored by KfW Development Bank. The college is run by a longstanding project partner of KfW Development Bank, the Peace Parks Foundation.
