It gives me great pleasure to welcome Reshmi Singh to the fundraising team. Reshmi and I did our first training hike together a couple of Sunday’s ago and I asked her to introduce herself to the Emoya supporters ….
I am a 25 year old educator at a beautiful rural school up north. Being from a small town called Kwa Dukuza, KwaZulu Natal, which is safely nestled away from the hustle and bustle of city life, I developed a deep love and appreciation for nature.
I came across the Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in an interesting way. I am about to climb Mt Kilimanjaro and am eager to pursue a good social cause. I came into contact with Mandy who is very passionate about Emoya and all the great work that is being done to care for these big cats. I find the goals of Emoya extremely inspirational. When Mandy told me all about Emoya on a lovely Sunday hike, I jumped at the opportunity to help fundraise.
As an educator working with young minds daily I use every opportunity to create greater awareness of how our every action impacts the world around us. I’d like to use this journey to inspire my learners to achieve all that they are passionate about while still having compassion for the environment.
While I have chosen the Lemosho route, Reshmi will be climbing the Marangu route to the Kilimanjaro summit and we will summit a day apart.
