APAM keeps on giving…

APAM is delighted to support Conservation Lower Zambezi as well as Patron’s charitable initiatives, specifically the Royal Marines and their ongoing projects within Nepal.

Conservation Lower Zambezi is a non-profit organisation committed to the protection of wildlife and to the sustainable use of natural resources in the Lower Zambezi in Zambia.
The organisation’s plane, their ‘eyes in the sky’, has been due for an engine refurbishment. APAM is delighted to have sponsored the refurbishment as the plane provides a unique line of defence and rapid response to reports of illegal activity in our area – it is estimated that these aerial patrols discover 30% of all poaching activities detected in the Park and GMAs.

The Royal Marines Charity exists to help the entire Royal Marines family. The charity offers a range of services to both serving and veterans, from financial assistance to advice on finding a second, meaningful career. Fundraising and donations made to the charity enable them to help the injured, assist those medically discharged to find alternative careers, provide welfare and transition grants and much more.
 

For several years, Patron has provided funding to support the work of Seppi Enzio, an experienced mountaineer, who, after spending a significant amount of time in the Himalayas running expeditions, realised his ambition to help poor villages by rebuilding schools in the Everest valleys. Seppi’s team rebuilt and equipped multiple villages with water and solar power, including schools at Thame, Pangboche, Seduwa and Lukla, and in Khumjung and Chaurikarka, where Seppi has directly sponsored children each year, in order to guarantee them a steady education.
In addition to the school initiatives above, funding is also provided to enable Seppi Enzio and his team to make general improvements to the villages, providing critical infrastructure for access to fresh water and solar power, plus refurbishing and rebuilding important buildings for the communities.
Sadly, the earthquake in April 2015 destroyed much of what had been achieved. Following the completion of the emergency aid work, Seppi recruited a group of experienced individuals from France and Italy to join him on his return to Nepal in late Autumn 2015 to begin the rebuilding construction project. Each of Seppi’s recruits met their own expenses and the Nepalese villagers provided their own labour, which allowed our funding to be used to purchase the necessary building materials and also paid for the workers’ transport. Funding is provided to support their ongoing projects.
