Fundraise for Roots & Shoots

Make a real difference and become a Jane Goodall's Roots&Shoots Hero

Jane Goodall's Roots&Shoots South Africa is a programme of the Jane Goodall Institute SA, a registered nonprofit. 

Many of our programme participants are in vulnerable communities, and they and their families are experiencing extreme hardships during the current economic situation during the COVID19 lockdown. School feeding schemes that are an essential part of nutrition are not operational due to the suspension of schools, and many family members are not able to get an income at the moment. Our food gardens that provide assistance to these families are not accessible during this time to our beneficiaries, and we are not able to meet up with our groups on a regular basis.

We would like to be able to provide assistance to these families, including their pets, and any donation will be greatly appreciated.

Our team is focusing on 5 main communities.

You can also help by starting your own online fundraising project today to help us. 

It’s free, quick and easy to start. Through our fundraising platform, GivenGain, you are able to set up your individual fundraising project in our benefit. Raise any amount and do anything!

What can you do? Here are some ideas:

  • Run a half marathon at home during lockdown
  • Cycle a race at home during lockdown
  • Pledge your birthday
  • Grow a beard
  • Do anything - the sky’s the limit!
