ABOUT US

 

The Khoisanpeoples.org Web site is a partnership of human rights organizations and groups around the world who support the rights of the first peoples of Southern Africa. Below is a list of some of the organizations who have joined us in our work. This Web site is maintained by ECOTERRA Intl., who accompanies and stood besides the !Kung and other bushmen in their struggle since the 90's. If your organization would like to participate in this venture, please contact us.

SAVE THE KALAHARI SAN (SAVESAN) was approved by the IRS as a 501-C-3 non-profit organization in October 1993. This was a follow up of a visit to the Kalahari in 1988, and the publishing of the book `BUSH FOR THE BUSHMAN'. The purpose of the organization is to urgently inform the public of the dire situation facing the San (to scientists) or Bushmen (to laymen) or `The Gods Must Be Crazy' people (to movie goers). But more importantly SAVESAN wants to harness to the cause people to be interested and aggressively do something about turning around the environmental destruction of the fragile Kalahari ecosystem. This is the same environment that the San (or Bushmen) rely upon for their livelihood. When we lose the Bushman we lose their culture too.
