Cheeky Cheetah - Harnas Wildlife Foundation

Cheeky Cheetah

By supporting the people of the San tribes, Harnas is providing sustainable education for their children and offering basic training for adult men and women. This enables them to gain skills to secure a more constant source of income and a better future.

The San people, indigenous to the Kalahari, and Southern Africa’s oldest ethnic group, have always been nomadic. They used to make their living off the land on a day-to-day basis of hunting and gathering. The desire to move and relocate is deeply engraved within their souls. Unfortunately the changing world now requires that they urgently adapt to the ways of modern civilization. Lacking a modern education and the inability to move freely is causing many social problems and racial conflicts. Many of the employees on Harnas belong to the San ethnic group. Harnas has been actively creating work opportunities for them, integrating them into the various projects being conducted.

With a rapidly increasing unemployment rate in Namibia, coupled with the high illiterate percentage and common social problems such as alcoholism, Harnas realized the overwhelming need for training in every area from medical and social skills, to basic education. Harnas comprehends the mythical lesson captured in the saying, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you feed a nation”, and strives to apply it practically.

This comprehension gave birth to the “Cheeky Cheetah Day-Care Centre”. Situated on the farm, its location provides a unique experience in which to learn about basic pre-school education, life skills and increasing awareness about wildlife conservation. The combination of essential skills and nature conservation will allow the San people to move forward. With this solid foundation the Cheeky Cheetah students have a better chance of finishing their schooling and adapting in public schools.
