From conservation partners to big corporates, the programme works with a diverse range of funders and host organisations. The WWF also works closely with all universities in South Africa to promote internship opportunities. With these partnerships, the programme enjoys much success and it looks forward to forging new relationships with even more dynamic non-profits, corporates, and institutions of higher learning in South Africa.
