Dsenyo's "Design for Change Contest" benefits anti-poaching efforts in South Luangwa, Zambia

Calling all aspiring jewelry designers! The theme of the 2014 Dsenyo Design for Change Contest is Down to the Wire: Help Make Poaching History.

University students (18 yrs+) enrolled in a design course or social enterprise course are invited to submit their designs for a chance to win a 9-day safari to South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, courtesy of Norman Carr Safaris! The winning design will be marketed as part of the 2015 Dsenyo Collection and crafted by Luangwa's own Mulberry Mongoose. Most importantly, $5.00 of each piece sold will benefit the anti-poaching efforts of the Zambian Carnivore Programme (ZCP) and the South Luangwa Conservation Society (SLCS).

Lyndsay wrote about her jewelry shopping spree at Mulberry Mongoose in Zambia in a post earlier this summer:
Near the new luxurious Chinzombo Luxury Camp, based at Kapani Lodge, Kate Wilson and her team design and craft stunning jewelry from organic bush materials and snare wires gathered during anti-poaching patrols. Cool, hey?! I was lucky enough to stop by the Mulberry Mongoose shop when I was there in May and I had some cash burning a hole in my pocket - thankfully Kate's prices are an incredible value for the craftsmanship and the pieces are so unique no one at home will ever have anything like them! 
The deadline for entries is November 15th. Check out all the details on the contest here:
