Funding makes a direct contribution to safeguarding
important sacred sites in Southern Africa.
The scale and magnitude of the profiles, observatories and marker stones covering an area over 800 kilometers long are monumental in proportion and defies explanation. Much work remains to be done to document all the known sites, many of which lie on privately owned land and are inaccessible to the public. This Mapping of the Southern African sacred sites is the primary objective of the Sacred Sites Foundation of Southern Africa, along with developing a strong network of community custodianship projects around the country.
We have an ongoing funding drive towards our Sacred Site Mapping Project, our School Outreach Project and our Community Custodian Programme. Your generosity is appreciated.
Mapping these sacred sites is important work for Cape Town and South Africa. Combined with research and documentation of these sites we have a 5 year project plan to develop community custodianship programmes. We have been asked to develop the sacred site tour-guide training guidelines for the tourism Industry.
We are already creating vital linkages to communities on the fringe of these sites. Job creation coupled with skills transfer is a critical factor to protect these vulnerable sites, whilst recording the oral histories of these areas and involving the locals in the Sacred Site Community Custodianship Program. Public awareness projects include our “School Visit” program where we will take school tours to the sites every month, to reach a projected 40 schools per year for 5 years. Contribute to this school tour program with your donation to the Sacred Site Foundation of Southern Africa, and help educate the guardians of tomorrow.
Take a hike with us or come on an organised tour
To help us raise funds for the two main projects of mapping and community custodianship, we run regular tours where we charge a suggested fee of R200 per person. If you would like to hike with us to a sacred site soon then please contact Dean Liprini directly firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can also design a day, or week tour to suit your available time and budget. Every sacred site journey is unique, so join our Facebook group and come on one of the regular walks and talks organised by Dean and his team. By joining these tours and hikes you can help contribute directly with regular small donations, and with spreading the public awareness for the Sacred Sites Foundation of South Africa.
We regularly organise day tours and special events for individuals and organised tour groups, please contact us to make up a tour route that suits you. We also have branded merchandise, original hand dyed T-shirts with our “Table Mountain Rocks” logo!
