We hope you had a good start of the year and that 2020 will be a year to remember! A lot has been going on at our camp, so we wanted to update you on a few things!
After a busy year filled with kids, volunteers and animals, it was time for a few weeks of relaxation at DAKTARI. Most of our staff and long-term volunteers went on a trip for the holidays which left the camp very quiet.
We took these few weeks to recharge our batteries so we could jump into 2020 at full speed, but we also took the time to invite some of our friends and family over for a bit of quality time!
After those few weeks of well-needed rest, we can happily say that our camp is now full of life again!
Our volunteer coordinatos went to deliver a presentation about DAKTARI at Leoma school in Finale village, to recruit the first batch of children that will come to DAKTARI for a full week of environmental education.
The first children arrived mid-January when the school reopened, and they are having a great time learning about the environment in the middle of the bush! To deliver the lessons, we currently have 12 volunteers who are absolutely crushing it.
We couldn't have hoped for a better start of the year!
