NEWS

The Dutch Postcode Lottery has been a loyal supporter of the work of Peace Parks Foundation since 2002. At the annual Goedgeld Gala held in Amsterdam on 4 March 2020, Peace Parks again received a donation of € 1.35 million to continue working on the protection and sustainable development of transfrontier conservation areas in southern Africa. This year, the Lottery donated more than € 376 million Euros to more than 105 causes that support both people and nature. Since 1989, the lottery has donated a total of more than € 6.2 billion to hundreds of charities and social initiatives. An overview of all donations can be found on  the Postcode Loterij website

On 4 March 2020, the Dutch Postcode Lottery announced continued support to Peace Parks Foundation with a contribution of € 1,350,000 to continue working on the development of transfrontier conservation areas in southern Africa. In addition, a Dream Fund grant of € 16.9 million was awarded to the World Wide Fund for Nature, Peace Parks Foundation and African Parks for the socio-economic development of the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area.

To date, Peace Parks has received more than € 42.5 million from the Dutch Postcode Lottery. This includes an amount of € 14.4 million that Peace Parks Foundation and the World Wildlife Fund Netherlands received from the Lottery’s Dream Fund in 2014, to assist with efforts to protect rhinoceros populations in Africa.

In addition, a Dream Fund grant of 16.9 million was awarded this year to the World Wide Fund for Nature, Peace Parks Foundation and African Parks. The three leading not-for-profit conservation organisations have joined forces to boost the ecological and socio-economic development of the world’s largest terrestrial transfrontier conservation area (TFCA), the Kavango Zambezi (KAZA). The KAZA Dream Fund project will assist KAZA’s partner states – Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe – to protect the region’s globally significant wildlife populations, counter the potential effects of climate change, safeguard and sustainably harness shared resources across borders, and greatly enhance the well-being of local communities.

We remain truly grateful to the 3 million players of the Dutch Postcode Lottery for making this continued support possible
