Summary

Each day we wake up to more plastic on our beaches, less fish in our oceans and more buildings along our coastline. Our beautiful reefs and mangroves are depleting and it is the most vulnerable communities affected. We believe that ANYONE can make a difference, but first, they need to understand the problem. The Conservation Education Society provides FREE conservation education to Kenyan youths, providing them with the knowledge, tools, and skills to go forward and change our future!

Challenge

Shockingly, over 50% of students in our county do not continue to secondary school, making us one of the lowest-ranked counties for exam results in Kenya. Sadly, our communities tend to be predominately poor and natural-resource dependent, when compared to others. This is only intensified by the county having the most degraded reefs in Kenya, due to overfishing, pollution and high levels of tourism. Without intervention, both our community and environment will continue to get worse.

Solution

We have come up with one solution for two problems; This being, conservation education. We develop programmes, materials and training for teachers, communities and students of all ages. All have been developed in partnership with teachers and communities, ensuring that everything we do is locally and culturally appropriate. All materials are made to compliment the Kenyan National Curriculum, hence, helping students with topics such as Maths, Languages, and Science, to name a few.

Long-Term Impact

Our programmes will help improve exam scores for over 250 students, increasing the number of students graduating from primary school to secondary school. Furthermore, these students will become the ambassadors of their community, being the driver of change towards more sustainable practices, improving our environment and the livelihoods of many!
