All smiles at the AEC
The ALERT Education Centre (AEC) has welcomed its second group of conservation education students from Mkoba 4 Primary School. The new children are an enthusiastic group; eager to discover the importance of conservation and about African animals, their habitats and the threats to wildlife, along with learning about African countries, their diversity and different cultures. Having heard all about the conversation classes from their schoolmates who graduated recently, these students are looking forward to working hard and to receiving their own certificates from the AEC.
To allow the AEC to continue to provide a free conservation education curriculum in the long term, we need your support. Please visit our Support Us pages for details of you can assist this project.
A friendly place for teenagers
Mkoba Polyclinic is currently working to establish a ‘Youth Friendly Corner’, with the aim of providing a safe and supportive environment for teenagers who visit the Clinic. Trained Peer Support Volunteers will engage with the youths in their local communities and regular educational sessions on abuse, STI's and HIV will be held at the Clinic to teach the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices.
Antelope Park Community Volunteers have been busy assisting nursing staff to prepare a room to be used for this initiative and to help source age-appropriate information for the youngsters. To make the environment more appealing, boys from the Midlands Children's Hope Centre have lent a hand to help decorate the room with artwork and information boards.
You could sponsor Mkoba Polyclinic and help to advance the Clinics' work in the local community.
