Supingstad Primary School is near and dear to our hearts. A number of our staffs children attend Supingstad Primary school and as a lodge we feel we need to help the community that we live in to help raise children to a brighter future. This year we started the Impodimo Conservation club where we invited thirty High school students for a full day of presentations, lectures, lunch and game drive. The idea behind this is to educate the children on the various aspects of game lodges, game reserves and nature.
1) Job creation. All the different departments, their roles and importance to the success of the lodge.
2) Revenue stream/Guests. How guests perceive game lodges, game reserves and the power of positive/negative advertising.
3) Challenges that nature faces. Poaching, Pollution, Deforestation and bad ecological practices.
We believe with all of us working together we are able to protect and conserve our natural heritage for future generations. We are so excited and cannot wait for next year.
Rhinos are in critical need of our help. With so many Rhinos being poached on a daily basis, a number of young rhinos are left as orphans. Impodimo makes a monthly contribution to assist them in caring and raising the young calves.
Impodimo has made a contribution to Saving the Survivors to help them with the fight to save the rhino. Follow this link to see the amazing work they have done. http://savingthesurvivors.org/
Having begun operations in 2007, The Last Hope Organisation (TLH) is a registered South African non-profit humanitarian organisation that caters for abused, abandoned ,neglected and underprivileged children who occupy various child ,youth care centres and Squatter Camps in Gauteng.
Their founding mission is to give these children experiences that are unknown to them, giving them the chance to look through an open window of endless possibilities and, one day, walk through the door beside it.
