Adventure for Rhinos is raising funds for the #MazingiraConservationFundThis grant fund has raised almost $60K (formerly known as the #RhinoRevivalFund). The Forum is working to leverage an additional 240K for a total goal of $300K. This grant fund is invested in a safe, high-interest yield account at 10% per annum in Kenya. The capital generated from interest supports a small grants fund for Human Wildlife Conflict prevention, wildlife corridor protection, and incentives for wildlife conservation ALL AIMED at rural communities. The higher the invested principle, the greater the annual grant amount.We anticipate the average grant size to be between $5-10K to start with. Local, rural groups and communities will be able to apply for these grants, with grant oversight and guidance provided by the Forum. Monitoring and evaluation will also be conducted at regular intervals, and performance reports published through the Forum on an annual basis.
