Save the Sheep is a registered non-profit company based in Sutherland in the Northern Cape Province South Africa.
We do focus primarily on farmer communities in the drought-stricken Karoo.
We do run drought management projects in Sutherland and surrounding districts.
Our main goal is to assist farming communities to survive the drought and remain productive suppliers to our national food basket.
Some of the projects we have managed include:
The Karoo is gripped in the worst drought in 220 years. Farmers in the Northern Cape Province do not receive any drought relief subsidy from either provincial or national government. Thus, the Sutherland farming community had to become self-reliant to ensure they survive the ongoing drought.
We established a non-profit company, Save the Sheep (NPC), with the primary objective to assist communities in times of disaster, drought and related acts of nature. The committee that runs Save the Sheep, on a voluntary basis, are all farmers in the Sutherland District.
