Rachel shares that her work is led by her absolute passion to unite people in change, in education, and in doing work for the greater good. Her greatest achievement during 2015 was initiating, managing and running The Inter-Schools Rhino Sculpture Exhibition and event at The Waterfront, to raise awareness and funds for a truly worthy cause. The event cost totalled R1,5 million, all of which was generously sponsored in some way or another. Helen Zille and Beezy Bailey kindly agreed to open the event and we enjoyed spreading the news in interviews on KFM, Cape Talk and other media platforms. Prestigious guests from the conservation world and children from many different schools enjoyed a light hearted event at Workshop 17, with fabulous entertainment from the top troops from Madame Zingaras. A truly valuable and successful event that has on-going positive effects on our youth and conservation.
