Kindness to Animals has no boundaries. Since 2007, Animal-Kind International has been raising money for animal rescue organizations in some of the poorest countries around the world.
Conservation Through Public Health (CTPH) promotes biodiversity conservation by enabling people, wildlife and livestock to coexist through improving their health and livelihoods in and around Africa's protected areas. CTPH envisions people, wildlife and livestock living in balance, health and harmony with local communities acting as stewards of their environment. CTPH has three integrated programs: wildlife health and conservation, community health and alternative livelihoods. These integrated programs are implemented through service delivery, education and behavior change communication, research, advocacy, social enterprises and information, communication and technology. Some of the poorest communities live around some of the World's most fragile and ecologically important ecosystems. In order to protect the wildlife - in CTPH's case, primarily Gorillas - and the environment on which it depends, CTPH recognizes the vital importance of improving the health and raising the quality of life of community members and their livestock as well as the Gorillas. Without this comprehensive approach, the entire ecosystem suffers - people continue to depend on poached resources from the protected wildlife areas, damaging them in the process, and animal health suffers as zoonotic diseases are incubated within human populations and spread to Gorilla groups (and vice versa). CTPH champions a "One Health" approach, based on the Population, Health and Environment (PHE) principles that address human, animal and ecosystem health simultaneously. CTPH's work primarily focuses on critically endangered gorillas at Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and other protected areas where gorillas naturally occur. We also train other organisations to implement our One Health model in savannah and mountain ecosystems in Uganda and other countries through advocacy. CTPH also has a number of social enterprises which support its work, including Gorilla Conservation Coffee. CTPH pays an above market price to coffee farmers around Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and profits from sale of the coffee are filtered back into the protection of some of the World's last remaining Gorillas.

The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) is an adaptable and flexible, non-bureaucratic organisation responding promptly to conservation threats by supporting trusted, reputable individuals and organisations operating in the field. Lean on administration but generous on funding, the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation supports a range of innovative, vital and far-reaching projects throughout Africa and Asia, achieving real results for wildlife survival by: - sending undercover agents into the field to investigate illegal wildlife crime, training and supplying anti-poaching patrols - establishing nature reserves and other protected areas - working with governments to establish conservation laws and regulations - educating wildlife consumers about the plight of the animals they 'use' - teaching young people about endangered wildlife through art and school projects
Mission statement: Empowering communities who work to ensure that children growing up in poverty get good health and an excellent education. Founding principles: We efficiently respond to the urgent needs of orphans and vulnerable children and the communities they live in. We believe that education is one of the fundamentals of success. By paying for students' school fees and providing scholastic materials (ie. school uniforms), we increase the opportunity for educational achievement.
