The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust


Born from one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is today the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and one of the pioneering conservation organizations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa. Founded in 1977 by Dr Dame Daphne Sheldrick D.B.E, in honour of the memory of her late husband, famous naturalist and founding Warden of Tsavo East National Park, David Leslie William Sheldrick MBE, the DSWT claims a rich and deeply rooted family history in wildlife and conservation.



The DSWT has remained true to its principles and ideals, remaining a sustainable and flexible organization. Guided by experienced and dedicated Trustees and assisted by an Advisory Committee of proactive naturalists with a lifetime of wildlife and environmental experience, the Trust takes effective action and achieves long-lasting results.

Mission statement:

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust embraces all measures that complement the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife. These include anti-poaching, safeguarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness, addressing animal welfare issues, providing veterinary assistance to animals in need, rescuing and hand rearing elephant and rhino orphans, along with other species that can ultimately enjoy a quality of life in wild terms when grown.


The Stephen Lewis Foundation

stephen-lewis-foundation-logoSince 2003, the Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF) has been delivering resources (to date, over $82 million dollars) directly into the hands of the grassroots organizations turning the tide of HIV and AIDS in Africa. Led by the grassroots experts in the more than 300 community-based organizations with which the SLF partners, over 1,400 innovative and inspiring initiatives have been successfully undertaken—with astounding and tangible impact—in the 15 African countries hardest hit by the epidemic. We know from experience that in order to effect positive and lasting change it is critical to support committed grassroots organizations working to improve the lives of those infected and affected by HIV and AIDS in their communities.



The principles of social justice, equality and partnership guide our process. Before partnering with an organization, one of our experienced field representatives visits to assess the organization’s connection to the community, its ability to implement programming, and the strength of its financial accountability systems. Importantly, the organizations with which we partner recognize that gender inequality drives the AIDS epidemic and have dedicated programmes that support grandmothers, girls and
women. Once an organization partners with the SLF, our Programme Officers communicate regularly with the staff to ensure that our approach remains informed, responsive, relevant and effective.
