Recently, we held our first Wildlife Warrior Program Poster Competition at Embiti Primary School near Sand River Mara (SRM). The children drew amazing posters based on this term’s theme ‘The Importance of Forests’. A group from the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO) based in Thailand and who were staying at SRM also joined us at the school.
SRM Camp guides together with teachers from Embiti sat in the judging panel while the YPO group and members of the School Management Committee formed part of the audience.
The highlight of the event was when the group announced that they would sponsor all the pupils from Embiti to go on a Game Drive to the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The children and their teachers were elated upon hearing the good news!
The group also pledged a further $1,000 donation through the Land & Life Foundation to the School. This donation will go a long way to fund the much-needed toilets.
Many thanks to Claudia de Vries together with the rest of the Sky Safari team, Julia Binks, George and Theresa (SRM Camp Managers) and all SRM Camp guides for their help.
Last but not least, we are very excited to inform you that our online payment system is now activated. Donors can now support our life-changing work from the comfort of their own homes and places of work. Please share this good news with all your contacts and agents.
As always, if you have any questions about our work, please feel free to contact our team.
