UPLIFT (Unlocking Prosperous Livelihoods for Tomorrow)
UPLIFT is developed by the Grumeti Fund (GF), is a program focused on community upliftment in Africa. This outreach program is specifically designed to enhance the livelihoods of individuals living along the boundary of the Grumeti concessions. In this region of Tanzania, the majority of all wage earners are farmers. Dotted along the boundary of the Grumeti concessions, the farmers have no barriers between the farms and resident wildlife. This makes farmers particularly vulnerable to the movement of animals along the boundary and crop-raiding by elephants.
