Water Project for the KwaNgwena CommunityThanks to a fundraising event organised by the chairman of our German NGO, Cycle of Life e.V, we were able to complete the Water Project for our neighbours, the KwaNgwena Community. This is one of our largest and most significant projects, supplying constant running water to the Velakukhanya Combined Primary School and their community. Together with our main sponsors, Cycle of Life Charity Funds and Zuka Game Reserve we installed a solar powered pump and piping from a borehole along the river to the school 3km away. This provided the school with a consistent supply of running water which they haven’t had for at least 5 years, having to rely in the interim on rainwater and inconsistent water deliveries from the government. Once their tanks are full the overflow supply is then distributed to several tanks in the community. We were privileged to have Miss Earth at our opening ceremony.
On Sunday 12th March 2017, among 35,000 avid cyclists, set to take on the 109km Cape Town Cycle Tour, was The Cycle of Life team.
As rhino poaching is escalating yearly we are forced to take serious action in protecting this dying species. The Cycle of Life™ Team will cycle this unique 4-day-stage, 260 km event, starting in the uMkhuze game reserve section and ending in the seaside resort of St Lucia within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park to raise funds for rhino dehorning, anti-poaching and relocation.
