Funders

Our heritage work would not have been possible without the generous funding from the following organisations

The National Lotteries Commission of South Africa funds non-profit organisations that play a role in the development of our society through initiatives in the areas of sports, arts, culture, national heritage and conservation. The NLC funded two large scale heritage documentation projects whereby the laser scanners were purchased; we would not be able to continue our heritage work had it not been for their support.
Amafa / Heritage KwaZulu Natali is the provincial heritage conservation agency for KwaZulu-Natal. Amafa has been a key partner in ACT’s heritage work and has also funded several projects including the documentation of Isandlwana, uMgungundlovu, a paleosol site and the impressive Eland Cave rock art shelter.
The CyArk 500 Challenge is an ambitious goal set by American non-profit, CyArk, to digitally preserve 500 cultural heritage sites around the world within the next five years. CyArk and its partners are on a mission to digitally preserve these cultural heritage sites before more are destroyed. The CyArk 500 funded the documentation of 9 Karoo corbelled houses, saving an important part of South Africa’s cultural heritage. 
The National Heritage Council (NHC) of South Africa is a statutory body that is responsible for the preservation of the country’s heritage. The NHC funded a project for the systematic survey of rock art sites in the Cape Fold Mountains region (Western Cape and Eastern Cape). This project aimed to map and create a full digital record of sites and enter that data into the national database, SAHRIS.
