Who Has Visited Us?
Dec 2012 - Mar 2015
Apr 2015 -
Some exciting things concerning this project have happened recently. Take a look!
10. August 2015 - Lilitha Climbs Mt Elbrus in Russia!
Lilitha has just returned from the most amazing adventure! She travelled to Russia with my colleague and friend, Deidre Bothma, and these two ladies climbed Mt Elbrus, the highest peak in Europe, together!
About a year ago Deidre came to me and told me she wanted to do this climb, but she did not only want to do it for herself. She wanted to do it for a good cause and she asked whether she could take one of the Travelling Rhinos to the summit with her to raise awareness of the terrible poaching crisis in South Africa. No need to ask what my answer was!
And so it happened that Lilitha, the South African-based rhino, went on an adventure of a lifetime. She met wonderful people from all corners of the world and was able to tell them about what is happening to our rhinos in South Africa. Hopefully they will share her story and spread the news that rhino horn is NOT medicine!
Congratulations to Deidre and Lilitha who summited Mt Elbrus, at 5,642 m, the highest peak in Europe, on
2 August 2015
! What an awesome achievement!
Take a look at the photos from her trip with Deidre.
9. June 2015 - Dylan donates his winnings to a rhino cause:
Dylan is a Grade 6 pupil at our school (Elkanah House Senior Primary). A little while ago he had the opportunity to kick for goals at a rugby match at Newlands Stadium, in front of a packed out crowd. He competed against a boy from a neighbouring school. The prize money for a successful kick was R1000. Both boys were successful, so they shared the prize money and each received R500. Dylan immediately let me know that he would like to donate his winnings to a cause that supported the rhinos in South Africa - and so of course, The Chipembere Rhino Foundation came to mind.
Thank you Dylan for caring about our rhinos!
8. MORE EXCITING NEWS!

Makulu visited Innovative Educator Consulting in Minnesota. Naomi Harm (@nharm) and Tim Nielsen (@teach1tech) took Makulu on an adventure to Florida and Tim also took him to visit some of his old students at his previous school. Makulu had the time of his life!

Naomi also included an insert about the project in THE DIGITAL BUZZ RADIO SHOW. Click on the image below to listen to the programme.
