Last year (2011) LUMO gave a total of 990,000/= to its shareholders to cater for bursaries and ranch projects. The sanctuary which gets its revenue from get entrance, lease fee and bids mites has decided to make sure at least each share holder gets to appreciate their brainchild projects of conservation. Lumo would like to assist its members where possible and that’s why it has also been issuing cheques towards fund raising on education programmes to both primary and secondary schools within the sanctuary. This has also been done to local churches and ensuring at least every member benefits the project even if indirectly.

In the past days, LUMO Volunteers and staff have been busy visiting the local schools in the area in order to find out where support might be needed. This is Latika Primary School, which has so far been running as a nursery school and will these days open its doors to its new first and second grade pupils. With the aid of volunteers and their donors, these kids will be able to sit on brand-new furniture and receive a huge pack of stationary and text books.
