| We are entering a chapter of cultural progression |
The Nile| culture commits itself to creating a positive impact on society and operating in a responsible and sustainable manner. We are solidifying the framework of our mission to strengthen our community and evolve our planet by determining our goals and sharing our focal point. We ensure accountability and transparency around the pursuit of our aim that not only enshrines the values in our corporate charter, but also reflects our deep belief that all enterprises in the future should behave in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.
The Nile| culture believes introducing art with education to promote conservation presents new outreach opportunities essential to the outcome. Our purpose is to provide support and work alongside organizations whose goals align with our innovative conservation mission.
Rhino poaching is currently at a crisis point. Almost two rhino a day are slaughtered for their horns to satisfy market demands, despite the well-publicized gravity of the situation. With each kilogram of horn retailing for over $65,000 US, the struggle for survival is at an all-time high.
The Nile| culture has created a collection of rhino horn inspired candles, a collaborative publication, and a short film to be debuted during Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Project goals include 1) fostering knowledge and positive attitudes towards wildlife, and 2) reinvesting funds into project initiatives supporting anti poaching strategies; wildlife management, conservation, security, research & monitoring, and care for orphan/habituated wildlife.
Rather than seeing the war against poaching as a futile endeavour, M'ilima is a celebration of recent conservation success while acknowledging a continuous battle we have yet to win.
