Jane Goodall Institute Belgium is delighted to announce its annual gala dinner & charity auction which will take place on 14 March 2020. We are honoured to be joined by our founder, the legendary Jane Goodall with whom we will look back at 60 years of pioneering work as she shares with us her challenges, successes and hopes for the future. We are most fortunate to once again have the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Esmeralda of Belgium who will be attending the event. In addition, we are honored that Prince Hussain Aga Khan will be present and donated two items for our charity auction.

Thanks to our partner John Martin, this exclusive gala dinner and charity auction will take place in the beautiful setting of Martin’s Chateau du Lac in Genval. Later in the evening, you will be able to take part in our charity auction, which will include beautiful works of art as well as exclusive prizes, such as a dream safari in Tanzania.

This year, to mark the 60th anniversary of Jane Goodall’s arrival in Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania and the start of her continued and uninterrupted ground-breaking work, we will be raising funds for the reforestation efforts, youth empowerment projects and animal welfare programs of the Jane Goodall Institute in Tanzania.
