Our mission is to inspire and educate underprivileged children to care for their environment. To do this we urgently need a vehicle to safely and legally transport the children.
We allow underprivileged children to experience their local environment. We inspire these children to protect their environment and inform them about eco tourism job opportunities. We develop the children’s self-confidence while diminishing the stigma of apartheid through working with international volunteers. We give a safe home to orphaned and injured wildlife. We urgently need a vehicle to safely and legally transport the children.
Weekly 8 kids are collected from their village and taken to the bush school where they stay for 5 days. Rescued animals, bush walks and lessons inspire students to care for their environment. Children are also taught about life skills and careers.
Today’s local underprivileged children will be able to secure good employment in nature reserves. The children, future custodians of nature, will be inspired to protect wildlife and their fragile environment. Transporting them safely is essential.
This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
