It is with great joy that I can report that we are now back at our four partner schools, starting back in February after various meetings with the Environmental Club teachers and junior secondary school staff in January, where we introduced them to Mogomotsi Radinonyane, our new Community Outreach Officer who will lead our school's education programme. Mogomotsi attributes his love of nature to when he was a young boy herding the family goats, harvesting the wild fruits on the way, learning about the signs of nature, listening to, and learning about the birds and other animals that shared his landscape. He comes to us from Khama Rhino Sanctuary Trust where he was an Assistant Environmental Education Officer and Safari Guide. His fear is that future generations will only see elephants and other wildlife in photos, whilst we had the privilege of seeing them in the wild. I think you will agree that the students are in good hands and our programme will thrive under his guidance alongside the continued support and insight from Walona, our previous Community Outreach Officer. The new year has started off well with 130 students engaged and eager to learn. Our first lesson focused on Food Chains, Food Webs and Trophic Cascades and this month we are learning about Pollution and Waste Management. As always, the classes are focused on being outside the classroom and engaging students in their environment, which the students and the teachers enjoy. We are so grateful for your support that has enabled us to continue supporting the schools during the pandemic and now, with health and safety high on the agenda, as we reengage with them in person. We have reached our goal for this fundraiser as it was set up for a year, but we shall be duplicating the fundraising as this is an ongoing programme and so we hope you can continue to support us for the coming year(s).
