What we do
£1…1 textbook...wonder why it's important?!
We are delighted to share that we have managed to purchase 2,200 textbooks and that by working with Imvelo Safari Lodges, we have distributed 1,400 of these across 14 schools south of Hwange National Park's southern boundary. Read more about this here
There is limited support for Zimbabwe’s education system and it has become very difficult to access textbooks to support the new academic curriculum.
We’re raising funds to buy new curriculum textbooks from Oxford University Press Southern Africa at the cost of £1 each…your daily coffee could supply three children in Zimbabwe with a textbook each!
Working with partners on the ground, including Imvelo Safari Lodges, these textbooks are distributed to schools and children who live in rural, isolated and impoverished communities near or with wildlife.
Awareness of the importance of conservation and general education has a crucial role in safeguarding wildlife and opening people up to different socio-economic opportunities.
Without education, there is no hope for true community engagement in wildlife conservation – education must start in the classroom and with the right resources. Livelihoods in these communities are often burdened by erratic and difficult environmental circumstances, human-wildlife conflicts, hunger and lack of important resources.
Let’s provide children and teachers in these challenging areas with the right materials to learn and empower them to better live with and protect their wildlife.
