We believe that children will not be motivated to care for the environment unless they feel a sense of respect, love and connection to the earth. Therefore, our Programmes aim to give children opportunities to experience nature, rather than read about it in a textbook.
In addition, time in nature can be very healing for children growing up in communities with challenges such as unemployment, gangsterism, and drug and alcohol abuse.
Nurture an Eco Warrior through one of our following Programmes:
- R250 - provides one child with one hike
- R250 - provides one child with classroom worm farming & gardening for a year
- R1000 - provides one child with weekly extra-mural Eco Clubs for a year
The Earthchild Project also offers life-skills programmes which include yoga, mindfulness, healthy living and leadership training. These interventions come together to compliment the government school curriculum so that together, we can create a new generation of conscious, confident and responsible Earthchildren.
