Elephant Human Relations Aid
EHRA has been welcoming families to volunteer since 2013. Every year since we have had amazing experience with different families, coming together to help the communities and elephants of Damaraland!
And it has gone from strength to strength, so much so, that our first trip is already fully booked, and we have decided to add another tour.
The itinerary is a little different from our normal volunteer project to make it more child friendly and included more activities on the patrol week, keeping the children in mind. The building project will be based at our partner school, Okongue Primary in Okongue village and the project work will be tailored to suit the whole family. EHRA’s ethos of ‘community’ remains, with families taking it in turn to be on ‘kitchen duty’ cooking over the fire for other members of the group.
The project will be led by Hendrick Munembome, EHRA’s head tracker and community liaisons manager. Hendrick has been with EHRA for the last 9 years, is also a registered tour guide and has all his first aid qualifications. Hendrick has many fascinating stories to tell about his life, is a brilliant communicator and elephant expert.
