WESSA plays a critical role in bringing government, corporates and civil society together to create effective partnerships.

Through the key focus areas of our work we are improving school education, supporting sustainable tourism, protecting and conserving our country’s rich biodiversity, facilitating socio economic development and addressing the critical scarcity of skills and training required to drive South Africa’s green economy. We also have a strong track record of successfully implementing projects on behalf of corporates to help them realise their CSI strategy in the local community.

We invite you to join us in our quest to become champions of the environment and achieve a more sustainable South Africa for all. Please contact us to learn more about partnering with us.
