In addition, we were awarded another SEK 8,890,000 for our special project, “Peace & Changemaker Generation”, to be undertaken in collaboration with the World’s Children’s Prize . This project will contribute to long term peace building in communities living adjacent to the Mozambican and Zimbabwean components of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area where many children, especially girls, have their rights badly violated, and where poaching and other crime that is against detrimental to wildlife is common. Approximately 100,000 children – an entire generation – will be educated and empowered as changemakers that will stand up for child rights, especially girls’ rights, democracy and sustainable development, including the protection of the environment and wildlife.

We want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the players of the Swedish Postcode Lottery, whithout whom this continued support would not be possible.

This year, the Lottery distributed SEK 951 980 158 among 56 beneficiaries in civil society

Since 2010, Peace Parks Foundation Sweden has received just over SEK 107 540 000, of which SEK 33 889 900 was donated towards Special Projects.
