#CharityTuesday: TUSK Trust

Tusk is a small, dynamic organisation with over twenty years of experience initiating and funding conservation, community development and environmental education programmes across Africa.

Since its formation in 1990, Tusk has raised over £25million for a wide range of projects across the continent. The charity has earned a reputation for being financially efficient, with an average of 80% of the net funds raised reaching the field.

Conservation of wildlife remains a key objective with substantial funding being applied towards the protection of threatened species such as elephant, rhino, cheetah, chimpanzee, mountain and lowland gorilla, African wild dog, giant sable and even marine species such as turtles.

Tusk has, with its partners in the field, been at the forefront of promoting and funding community driven conservation programmes. The charity’s holistic approach recognises that the long-term future for wildlife is dependant on education and sustainable development.

HRH the Duke of Cambridge became the charity’s Royal Patron in 2005 and has been a proactive supporter of Tusk’s work ever since.

I am passionate about the work that TUSK provides and have donated to them previously. As part of my ongoing commitment to support charities through the sales of my handmade jewellery, TUSK is one charity on my list that gets considered when enough orders are made throughout the year.

Your generosity for buy my handmade items goes on to benefit brilliant causes such as TUSK.
