The Black Mambas are Coming on 10th October

The Black Mambas are the first all-female anti-poaching organisation in the world and comprised solely of women. They are a nonprofit anti-poaching unit in South Africa, who won the Eco-Warrior Silver Award for their work combating poaching. Not only is this organization making impressive strides to reduce poaching, it is also helping to address South Africa’s unequal social climate.

The Black Mambas are a project that has not only given women a source of employment, but also a voice in their communities. They present a unique employment opportunity for South African women, many of whom are the sole earner in their families, to afford housing and schooling for their children. The women also teach the importance of their anti-poaching efforts in schools through the Bush Babies Environmental Education Program and through that have become role models for young South African girls.

You have a chance to hear about their work and meet some of them in person on:

Monday 10th October 2022

At 7pm in Dornoch Social Club

When a group from the Black Mambas will be giving a presentation, showing a video and taking questions from the audience. This event is child-friendly, so all ages are welcome.

This formal part will last roughly an hour and afterwards there will be a Coffee and Shortbread and a chance to have an informal “chat” with the girls. 

There will also be a small raffle and a “silver collection” to raise funds for their work. 

There will be additional parking available in the grounds of St Finnbarr’s if the Social Club car park is full. 

All are welcome to come along and meet some of these ground-breaking women in person.
