Since 2008, Tusk Trust’s continued support has been crucial to the success of Coaching Conservation’s commitment to the communities surrounding the important Okavango Delta region of Northern Botswana. Their important funding for core exercises including curriculum development, app development, media assets, salaries, and enterprise development, has been invaluable in contributing to our success.
