“Mentors at Chipembele”
For the first time, in 2020 we financed a program carried out by the Chipembele center. A group of young mentores work with the children who come to the center and teach them to care for and love the wildlife that surrounds them. The Chipembele staff teaches these young mentors about leadership and life skills for themselves, as well as information about wildlife, which they in turn share with the children. Education linked to conservation is a win-win alliance.
Taking classes out to the villages
One of Chipembele’s new programs is to bring its knowledge of the fauna of the area to the most remote villages. It is not only the children who appreciate these visits, but also the older people of these communities. It is a very important program which shares knowledge and the need for further protection of the animals of Zambia.
