Gift of the Givers
I know some people who have worked with them and they said the scale of their operation is insane. They mentioned that they set up a whole village for refugees. It even included a school.
DAKTARI Bush School and Wildlife Orphanage. They educate and inspire local children to value their environment and stimulate community development. Volunteers from all over the world teach the lessons and guide the children in caring for the animals. DAKTARI also runs an outreach program for a greater impact in the communities. Founded by Ian and Michele Merrifield in 2006 through their shared love of wildlife.

They are a pro-life organization which also does outreach to teach people how to care for animals and they support poor communities too in that regard.

What we are about
The Lucky Lucy Foundation is a Registered Non-Profit ( NPO: 091-636 | PBO: 930-036-404), Pro-life, Pro-Quality of Life organization that tries to relieve the plight of severely neglected and abused township and street animals. We also care about social uplifting impoverished children and adults in and around Cape Town, and have been since inception in 2010.
Lucky Lucy was established on Jan 28, 2010, after our founding members discovered a pregnant dog, tied to a railway line with wire. As a result of this inhumane cruelty, Lucy (as she quickly became known) lost her front leg as a result of several trains passing over her. Lucky was added because the trauma did not cause her death.
Lucky Lucy is an ambassador for the voiceless. We oppose any form of cruelty to animals, whether it is the physical abuse of a dog or inhumane methods of slaughter for human consumption. The Lucky Lucy Foundation is not just a small charity trying to save the world, but a stepping stone of hope for neglected and abused animals, a reducer of over-population and a beacon of light for destitute adults and children.
