Mara Book and Conservation Club supports Wildlife Clubs at 5 Primary schools located next to the Mara Triangle and Maasai Mara Reserves. The school names are Saparingo, Enkereri, Pusanki, Esoit-Naibor and Iltolish Mara Primary schools.
As a conservation partner, Life Net Nature aims to raise half of the $20,000 budget for education activities planned for 2021-2023. The Mara Book and Conservation Club is a Community-Based Organization(CBO) registered with the State Department for Social Protection under the ministry of East African Community, Labour and Social Protection.
Mara Book and Conservation Club works within schools to share practical advice and outreach about the ways in which school children, teachers, parents, and communities can help in the fight to save endangered species from possible extinction. We emphasize conservation education to pupils about the Greater Maasai Mara Ecosystem and its fragility as it currently faces a host of both internal and external threats.
So far, 250 members have been successfully enrolled. We have planted over 100 trees at two schools, and have donated books about wildlife to the schools.
Your kind and generous donations will allow us to do much more:
1. Provide environmental activities at schools more often, including tree planting, art competitions, book readings, outreach about wildlife ecology and conservation, and guest speakers.
2. Provide Twende Porini initiative (Lets tour the reserve) activities. Sponsoring visits to protected areas for both teachers and pupils.
3. Buying more books for schools and making small CBO office improvements.
