At Sanbona, we believe that education starts at home. This is why our team are taken on drives and nature walks to learn about wildlife and nature and the importance of protecting it. For us, giving our staff an understanding, pride and respect for nature and the beautiful area that they work in, is fundamental.
For Mandela Day 2013 we wanted to take our project a step further and get the children who live on the reserve and neighbouring farms to participate in educational game drives or guided walks on the weekend, at least once a month. We wanted to expose them to the environment that is on their doorstep. It is our hope that through this exposure to the natural wonders the kids will become more interested in wildlife and local conservation.
As Nelson Mandela said “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” The Sanbona Strive to Educate Project endeavours to do this by empowering and educating the community in and around the reserve through exposing the children to the wonders of our natural environment.
Now let’s go see what we can find…
