We are happy to welcome 2016/17 academic year of the Environmental Education Programme which started on Monday 3rd October 2016, with 3 primary and 2 secondary schools from our neighbouring communities in Mile 13, Sussex, Baw Baw and Number 2 River.
With limited access to quality education on topics including conservation, climate change, renewable energy and environmental protection in Sierra Leone, our 10-week programme engages students on these key topics and how students and their schools can protect their local environment around them.
We encourage the school children to plant and take care of indigenous tree species in their schools and at home, with tree seedlings produced from the Learning Centre’s tree nursery.
We hope to continue working with schools in Freetown and across the country to educate students and their communities about environmentally friendly practices and conservation.
Keep following us as we have NINE WEEKS TO GO!
