Educating the youth on our impact on the environment helps them understand our current environmental issues, and contributes to better decision making to ensure a healthy and sustainable future.
The Children in the Wilderness Eco-Club learners at Modikwa Primary School were invited to spend an afternoon at the nearby Mogalakwena Research Centre in South Africa’s Limpopo Province, making crafts from natural materials.
Mogalakwena Volunteer, Camille Chalas, organised the craft workshop for the learners, with the aim being to create awareness about the natural beauty surrounding them, and the importance of protecting and conserving it.
Mogalakwena Research Assistant and Eco-Mentor, Portia Phokela, along with Mogalakwena students, took the learners into the bush to show them the variety of fauna and flora, and to collect natural material for their individual craft projects.
The learners spent the day getting creative and enjoyed homemade snacks from Bush Camp!
