The purpose of the Partners’ breakfast meeting is to bring together our key supporters to share the joy of our success as well as reflect on the challenges and the task ahead. It is to also bring potential corporate supporters on board.
With the theme, “IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF IKURU” we want to highlight Ikuru is one of the chimpanzees on Ngamba Island that represents a life’s journey of a rescued orphaned Chimpanzee. Enshrined in this theme is the fact that the Trust has managed to tread the journey with support of all the partners and donors and the reality that the journey continues.
