Since 2013 a group of students from The Burnett Honors College at UCF has been travelling to South Africa to work with the Intabazwe Township and Nambiti Game Reserve. This year ten of us have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to go on this service learning trip and implement projects to continue the efforts of conservation and sustainability. The proceeds from the sale of this t-shirt will go towards the purchase of supplies needed for our projects.
Today the rhino population is in danger due to high levels of poaching for their valuable horns. With rhinos being killed at a rate of 3 per day (According to the International Rhino Foundation), they have been declared "Nearly Extinct". We as a group are dedicated to helping these rhinos as well as all the wildlife of South Africa.

We will be working alongside the people of Intabazwe to implement many sustainable projects. These will include projects such as improving their energy systems, building a community shower, and upgrading the fence surrounding the community center to make it more secure.
While in Intabazwe we will be working with the local community to give them access to education and medical supplies. In South Africa for a child to go to school they require a uniform. Therefore, we will be fundraising to provide uniforms for the orphans residing at the community to attend school. We will be holding health seminars where we will distribute health supplies and teach the community members about hygiene and a healthy lifestyle.
Thank you for all your support!
