Eco Children is a non-profit organisation, initiated by the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, which focuses on hands-on environmental education and whole school development and work with primary schools in the area. They help schools better their infrastructure and the overall teaching conditions, in order to improve education and empower learners to break the cycle of poverty they have been born into
“Our vision is to make a positive impact on education in our adopted primary schools through whole school development with a focus on conservation.
We believe that all children should be given the best possible start in life and that a decent education is a fundamental human right.
We believe that by reducing the burdens of poverty, creating an environment conducive to learning and stimulating a child’s curiosity through awareness of the natural world, all children will have the capacity to flourish and become catalysts of positive change in their families and their communities, resulting in both environmental and economic benefits.”
