Why we need your help

The Zambian Connection 2019 Purpose

We are supporting CLZ’s environmental education programme this year which includes combat poaching of wildlife and natural resource exploitation in and around the Lower Zambezi National Park. 

Elephant Lunch

Changing mindsets through education and awareness is key to the long term safe-guarding of wildlife and the environment. Through its education programme, CLZ also wishes to provide learners and ultimately communities with the tools to find their own solutions to environmental degradation and improving livelihoods in these remote rural areas. CLZ currently works with 65 schools surrounding the LZNP reaching over 3,000 students.

Which include the following activities:

- School Visits (6 visits a year from the project areas surrounding the LZNP for 4 nights) - 24 students and 4 teachers visit CLZ and take on a number of classroom activities as well as educational game drives and boat cruise

- Outreach - CLZ representative to visit each school in the programme throughout the year (project area at a time) working with the Conservation Clubs to improve their curriculum and learning

- Teacher Training - Each year CLZ brings in a group of 30 teachers from one of the project areas come to CLZ to go through the curriculum and also go out on educational game drives and boat cruises

- Use of tablets - Since 2017 CLZ has modernised the EEP and has been using tablets with CLZ’s curriculum on to improve ICT and also interactive learning. 

The EEP is directed at the local school children and teachers from the communities that live on the outskirts of the Lower Zambezi National Park. The learners that come to CLZ’s Education Centre typically range from 10-16 years of age, represented in equal numbers by girls and boys. These learners are selected to visit the EEP Centre based on merit – the four top performers from each conservation club in a school are selected based on tests written prior to the school visit. The CLZ EEP Outreach Programme, however, reaches a far broader group of learners than the school visits. The EEP team, comprising the CLZ EEP manager and a driver, visit various schools’ conservation clubs from the EEP project areas. On these outreach visits, environmental education lessons and activities are conducted with the whole conservation club, often reaching up to 30 leaners that are part of the conservation club. Furthermore, teachers that are involved with the conservation clubs benefit from the EEP through these outreach visits, through school visits to CLZ, and teacher training workshops conducted at CLZ"
