Woodhill College, Pretoria, South Africa – Sponsor – 1306 Footprints
Woodhill College in Pretoria East was one of the first schools to display their fabrics with coloufully painted footprints for the World to see on the 17th September. Ryan Hammond, last year’s winner of Strictly come Dancing SA, together with Angelique Allisson and our dancing rhino Karlheinz Kruger, had the kids up on their feet doing a flash dance to create awareness for our rhinos and endangered wildlife.
In keeping with the spirit of outreach, Woodhill College has encouraged the children / learners to make a small contribution to afford this opportunity to children from environments whose financial resources are limited. This financial contribution has ensured that the “1,000,000 Footprints to Save Africa” campaign has reached children in the Nkomazi area south of the Kruger National Park. The “1,000,000 Footprints” team paid a visit to nine schools in the Nkomazi area and provided each school with fabric and paint, as well as, Bongi’s quest books, caps and valuable educational sessions on what is happening to Africa’s wildlife, the understanding of the ultimate impact their eradication would have on the natural heritage and economy of Africa and a platform to enable them to express their concern.
Thank you to the teachers and kids of Woodhill College for being such great sports and for taking a stand against the poaching and killing of our National Heritage.
