  • Funding Usage

    NWCF is launching a 52-week antipoaching campaign in the Nsefu Sector located in the Eastern Province of Zambia. This particular region has been deemed one of the last footholds of wildlife in Africa. It is imperative that we protect it to the best of our abilities, thus the dedicated "Nsefu Sector Antipoaching and Snare Sweeping Project". We will purchase one (1) used 4WD drive vehicle and hire 8 full-time snare sweepers to work for a 52-week period clearing and disposing snares and other means of entrapment which are significantly impacting endangered and vulnerable species. i.e. elephants, lions, giraffes, leopards etc. We have less than 7 years statiscally to save some of these species due to rampant poaching and wildlife trafficking driven by Asian crime syndicates and black market greed.

  • Business Plan

    Since our inception, we have been completely focused on fundraising to start programs and keep them going. Because we are growing faster and bigger than our funding, we are now delving into grant-writing and will make this a full-time project within our foundation. We are currently capacity building multiple programs to introduce economic opportunities in the Nsefu Sector, including sewing and beekeeping. Once these programs start producing at a consistent rate, we hope to turn them into funding for our community programs and we are expecting to execute that plan by year end 2019. Our sewing program is teaching women new skills to earn a steady income and to help provide for their families. We will be assembling a group of sewers into a small manufacturing business providing uniforms for safari park camps and lodges and uniforms for the children of Nsefu. Also we want to sell their products in the market in Zambia and in the US. A portion of the proceeds of all sales will go directly into NWCF conservation programs. We are also building beefencing in the sector to perform multiple tasks -a) teaching locals to learn new income-producing skills b) providing steady income for beekeepers with honey production sales in which NWCF will receive part of the proceeds to support our programs in the field c) and providing a natural deterrent to keep wildlife out of crop fields and gardens. Beekeeping is becoming a very lucrative business in Africa and it fulfills many needs in the community, both human and animal. NWCF also wants to establish a volunteer program. Many people are willing to pay to work directly with our programs on the ground. They are interested in our education programs, our beekeeping, and helping with construction of classrooms, ranger quarters, and our soon-to-be- compound which will house everything we do. Even before the foundation was registered and off and running, it was our absolute determination to make sure that every dollar raised would go DIRECTLY into our conservation programs...antipoaching, education, beekeeping, sewing and other projects on the drawing board. We are completely transparent and we turn every dollar into action. Though we are small in size compared to other organizations, we are impactful, prudent and efficient. Our mission is to NOT be one of the bloated, free-spending foundations that have been a black mark on decent hardworking, ethical charitable organizations. One can see where every dollar goes and we are very proud of that.

  • Self Identified Competition

    1)Highly funded crime syndicates who bribe and pay locals and officials in Zambia to do the "dirty work" of poaching in Zambia. They have limitless funds because of what people will pay for ivory and rhino horn. They have more equipment, more protections and they are ruthless and are robbing the future of this country. 2)Other organizations who have not conducted themselves in an ethical manner, thus making fundraising even more challenging than it is. 3)Ourselves. We always want to do more things on a bigger scale to protect wildlife. We are our harshest critic, our biggest challenger, and we strive hard every single day to be the best we can be. NWCF is very forward thinking for a conservation foundation. We think out of-the-box, and where people say, "that's impossible", we say..."we are going to try one way or the other". And we make an effort for someone to see where ones donation goes.We know how hard people work for their money, and we want to respect it in every possible way. Cofounder Victory Wallace is a business owner in Zambia and has lived in there 10+ years. She is a very shrewd business woman with amazing negotiation skills. We have learned to turn a dollar into the power of ten. NWCF is ethical and very focused on our mission, to protect Zambia's wildlife and to create long-term positive change for both human and animal. Where many organizations have gone in and done things their own way with no consideration of their host country, so we made a collective decision to get official approval on everything we do to make sure we have not put our foundation and our valued supporters in any compromising position. We work side-by-side with Zambian National Parks Dept. and are transparent in our operations. This is their country and we want to operate properly and respect their rules and regulations.
