Education for Conservation
It takes a Global Village…
Through Education for Conservation today, we invest in tomorrow’s custodians. We empower students with knowledge and opportunity and cultivate a deep-seeded passion for wildlife and wild places. We deliver locally relevant, fun and engaging programs for children in Kenya and Australia, and provide opportunity to put their knowledge into practice and to share their experiences with global classmates. We focus on recycling, sustainable living, conservation of native flora and fauna and being good global citizens.
What we do
In the Masaai communities of Kenya, we assist with educational resources for students most in need. However it is our suite of Education for Conservation activities and deliverables such as in class lessons, field trips and the building of environmental libraries that we are really helping people and planet. Our unique global ‘twinning’ program connects students from Kenya with Australian students who we are also working with to meet their own local environmental goals whilst also ‘paying it forward’ to help their Kenyan classmates.
