With technical and financial support from the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International, a partner of Wilderness Safaris Rwanda, the Eco-Clubs at Bisate Primary School have created an avocado nursery! In total, 2 000 avocado seeds have been prepared, and after two months will be distributed to each Eco-Club member and the teachers, for the school grounds and the surrounding community.
At Akayange Primary School, near Akagera National Park, the most recent Eco-Club lesson was all about orientation, and how to use a compass.
Eco-Clubs have also resumed for the 64 learners at Gisunzu Primary School, situated close to Gishwati Forest. All the children have planted their own indigenous tree around the school grounds, and each looks after their own on a daily basis. In April the learners built small fences around their trees to protect them from goats and cattle.
