To empower our local communities so they can actively participate
in the socio-economic future of Southern Africa.
We realise it…
By providing support and access to basic education and child care, skills development
and community-based development initiatives.
On the ground
Through creating professional and sustainable partnerships
between community, commerce & conservation.
Who we are
More Community Trust is a non-profit organisation whose core objective is to provide meaningful support for our local communities in which we operate.
Projects undertaken are all self-sustainable, as our belief is that by enriching communities to contribute their own effort and skill, projects are kept alive into the future. Each member of the community has a role to play, and in so doing inspires a secured pride, responsibility, accountability and happiness in community members.
Leadership of More Community Trust include representatives from the community, an independent financial adviser and a More family representative. The More family and their associated companies cover the administrative costs of the Trust so that only 7.5% of the donors’ funds are used for this purpose. This therefore ensures that 92.5% of all donations received land up in the hands of the identified and approved beneficiary projects.
What we do
57 graduated from HENNA PRE-SCHOOL; 907 learners have graduated since 2002
Vegetable gardens provide for 291 families from HENNA & 92 families from NEW BEGINNINGS.
Generous donors have facilitated self-sustaining vegetable gardens for both projects.

FRESH WATER PER WEEK

Pack for a Purpose facilitates a direct bridge between our small piece of Africa, and the rest of the world. Thanks to them, hundreds of our guests from around the world have arrived on safari with suitcases packed to the brim with basic yet necessary supplies, and which have had an exponential impact on the lives of the very young recipients at the receiving end.
