Educating school children and young Kenyans about the flora, fauna and environmental challenges in their country is the driving force behind the African Fund of Endangered Wildlife (AFEW).

The NGO that set up Kenya’s Giraffe Centre believes that it is essential to train teachers and educators. To achieve this, it organises ToT (Training of Trainers) workshops for teachers, establishment directors and curriculum support officers. This programme creates a virtuous cycle of learning, ownership and monitoring for the different education stakeholders involved in the training.

Supporting environmental projects

The aim? Capitalise on the influence of participants to promote education for sustainable development (ESD) and launch projects to make schools more ecological, manage waste and ensure food security in local communities. These projects foster active learning, embed ecology into existing school programmes and create links between schools and local communities.

Since launching its first workshops in 2003, the AFEW has trained more than 2,000 teachers and supported a multitude of sustainable environment projects. The NGO has developed and published two ESD resource booklets, which are now used as teaching aids in schools across Kenya and the wider East African region.

Moving forwards, the NGO hopes to build at least one ESD model school in each of the 47 counties in Kenya.
