“In just a few weeks our family will be taking its first official tour to Africa, a region of the world that over the past two decades has been a second home to me. Our team has helped create a meaningful programme that we’re so excited to share with you. On a personal note, I can’t wait to introduce my wife and son to South Africa! We’ll see all of you very soon.” – The Duke For the official tour, the family will be visiting South Africa together 🇿🇦 and The Duke will be carrying out visits to Malawi 🇲🇼, Angola 🇦🇴 and Botswana 🇧🇼 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Our monthly social awareness approach follows key accounts that inspire us and highlight those working towards positive change.

Today is #InternationalYouthDay where we celebrate the young leaders helping our communities at a grassroots and global level – the inspiring individuals who have the power to lead the future, and are moving the needle every single day. As President and Vice-President of The @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust (QCT) – an initiative that champions, funds and connects Commonwealth youth leaders working to change the world – The Duke and Duchess hope to shine a light on a few of these change making young leaders of the QCT, who are doing amazing things – not because they have to, but because they want to – a choice we all have in life. We are proud to introduce you to some of these individuals whose stories leave us inspired by the potential of our younger generation. This is just a select few, but there are so many of you taking impactful steps every day – and for that, we say thank you…. and keep going! 1st Image – @LizWathuti: Founder of Green Generation Initiative (GGI), 23 year-old Kenyan, Elizabeth Wathuti is making incredible progress since starting the community-based initiative in 2016. Focusing on deforestation, climate change and pollution – GGI has trained over 10,000 school children in being environmentally conscious and facilitated the planting of over 20,000 tree seedlings in schools, to help secure local school feeding programs. 2nd Image – @HeyGirlDreamer: Based in the UK – GirlDreamer, founded by Amna Akhtar and Kiran Kaur – was created with female empowerment for the next generation of women of colour in mind. It has become a reliable platform to many, providing leadership development and community initiatives focused around social inclusion, delivering 12 leadership programs in 6 schools, training over 300 girls in valuable leadership skills. 3rd Image – @Eco_Brixs: Andrew Bownds, the young founder of Eco Brixs – a closed-loop recycling system providing employment opportunities and creating a positive environmental impact in Masaka, Uganda. This community based system starts with local people collecting plastic waste, which they deposit at local satellite collection stations in return for payment. Photo © @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust

🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘 Today is #WorldElephantDay and we are pleased to announce that since we followed our friends at @ElephantswithoutBorders (EWB) on Instagram in July, when we were celebrating the environment, you and our friend @TheEllenFund (@TheEllenShow) have spread the word and EWB have been able to help protect 25 elephants by fitting them with satellite navigation collars! These collars allow the team at EWB to track the elephants, as well as to learn their essential migratory patterns to keep their corridors safe and open so future generations of elephants can roam freely. In honour of this amazing support, EWB have named their most recently collared Elephant…ELLEN! We can’t wait to see where she will go! 🐘 Two years ago on World Elephant Day, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined Dr Chase to help in this conservation effort. Below, a few words from Mike and his partner Kelly at EWB: • ‘Today is a day to honor and celebrate the majestic elephant and to make a strong stand for conserving and protecting one of the world’s most beloved animals. elephants are intelligent, sentient beings capable of emotions from joy to grief. They are ‘environmental engineers,’ a key-stone umbrella species, and the fight to save them is in effect, a fight to save entire ecosystems and all wildlife. Today elephants are facing many challenges; habitat loss and competition for resources creates conflict with humans, climate change and fires destroy much needed resources and poaching for the demand of ivory makes elephants bigger targets than ever. African elephants are especially prone to human-wildlife conflict because of their large home ranges. Finding, preserving and creating elephant corridors is therefore of great importance in helping to maintain habitats suitable for movement and minimising human-elephant conflict. Corridors are a mitigation technique to better the livelihoods of local communities and the elephants themselves, by providing environment and ample space for wildlife to navigate from one habitat patch to another, without affecting the livelihoods of communities.’ • EWB – Dr Mike Chase, Ms Kelly Landen . 📸 by DOS © SussexRoyal Additional photos: EWB
