The WILD bracelet is a purchase with a purpose.
At Sidai one of our missions is the preservation of Maasai culture through prolonging the life of traditional crafts. A key aspect of Maasai culture is also the respect for the land and its wild inhabitants, which the Maasai live alongside harmoniously.
Through this bracelet, we extend our efforts to preserve Maasai culture by supporting a local conservation group we believe is doing positive work in protecting Tanzanian land and wildlife.
20% of each bracelet sold goes to PAMS Foundation in Tanzania, an organisation that works to ensure wildlife and wild places are secure and that the communities that live nearby, largely the Maasai, can continue to co-exist without conflict.
With this purchase, not only are you creating work for Maasai women, but you are now supporting the preservation of their home.
More about PAMS Foundation
Pam’s Foundation ensures wildlife and wild places are secure and ensures coexistence is possible for the communities living side by side with wildlife, as they are ultimately the biodiversity stewards of the world.
They develop and deliver educational programs in schools and communities in wildlife areas to promote lifestyles that enable living in harmony with nature and create a greater awareness of the real value of nature. They train and support rangers and village game scouts who protect wildlife against poaching as well as assisting farmers and communities with coexistence strategies to reduce human-wildlife conflict. They also support local authorities in protected area management and collaborate with high level government and international stakeholders to tackle issues such as the illegal wildlife trade. They develop and test new approaches for conservation.
