The Blue Sky Society is more than a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping people and animals in need; it’s a way of living. Just by thinking positively and being proactive, you are contributing to change for the better. Although we have big ideas and huge fundraising prospects, the ripple of change begins with you and me getting involved. The sky’s the limit for what we can achieve and our vision is to identify and manage various projects where people can give of their time, expertise, ideas and funds to recognized charities and support the valuable work they do. We want to connect you with causes you are passionate about and together make a genuine difference in this beautiful place we call ‘Mamma Afrika’. We strive to improve the development conditions of children in the less fortunate communities by raising funds for various projects.

“After spending two weeks with Carla on the Rise of the Matriarch expedition, there was no way I’d pass up this opportunity to travel with Blue Sky Society again!"
"I never believed that a “small” road trip through Zim and Botswana would touch me so deeply and inspire me to not only be a better person but to give back."
"A soul-shaking experience that that allowed me to see first hand all that Mama Africa has to offer, from the humblest of her people to the most majestic of her wildlife."
"What an amazing experience. You hear of human-wildlife conflict but until you actually get to experience it and talk to people on the ground, it just doesn’t hit home."
"Life is most certainly an adventure filled with highs and not so high moments. Having created a life whereby l get to experience the beauty and challenges of mama.."

"Oh Africa you beauty". Zimbabwe is probably the last place I would have thought of visiting. We see so many people from there coming to find greener pastures here..."
"When I heard that Carla wanted me to join the Rise of The Matriarch, I was shocked and ecstatic. A little panicked because I hadn't flown out of South Africa."
