Both personally and on a corporate level, Harvey is committed to being a force for positive change and fulfilling his social responsibilities. Although much of this charitable work is done in private, Harvey has established several initiatives that he feels particularly passionate about.
Through his extensive travel and passion for safari, Harvey nurtured a keen interest in wildlife and it’s preservation. A particular instance witnessing a rhino’s death as a result of poaching, prompted him to support a partnership between Seecrypt, CSIR and Stop Rhino Poaching.
During a trip to Namibia, Harvey was introduced to a number of community leaders living on the outskirts of Etosha, one of the worlds largest national parks, and began to take an active interest in the health, education and futures of the children in this remote, poor, but extremely beautiful area.
