We, The Foxes, have always held the surrounding wilderness and community at the centre of all our actions.

FCWCT works across three sectors - Childcare, Education and Healthcare - to respond to the needs of the community and provide advocacy and access where it’s needed most. Current projects include providing direct orphan and foster care at the Children’s Village, overseeing the implementation of Kindergarten classrooms in local villages, sponsoring vulnerable youth in school, training local community health workers and supporting of local HIV/AIDS clinics.
The Friends of Ruaha Society, founded by Geoff Fox, with major contributions by Peter and Bruce Fox, was set up in 1984 with the aim of conserving Ruaha National Park and its surrounding game reserves. Key methods used to achieve the aim include education, and ensuring the local people understand the balance between themselves, wildlife, and the environment.
