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.
