IDA-Africa Education Program: Building Compassion

The Big Picture

Goal: $15,000
  $180 raised
We recognize that the youth are critical to the survival of future generations of wildlife, and we are engaging with school children in innovative ways. We have developed a children?s book, Je Protégé Les Chimpanzés (I Protect the Chimpanzees) and designed a fun five-day classroom program using the book as a centerpiece.

The education program includes reading, discussion and comprehension exercises, interactive art and pre and post-program surveys. At the end of the program the children are left with a sense of pride about the unique biodiversity of Cameroon?s beautiful forests, an understanding of chimpanzees as kindred beings who deserve respect and protection and a general appreciation of their responsibility as future environmental stewards.

Our goal is to raise $15,000 to administer the program to 3000 children in the 2017-2018 school year.

Impact of Your Donation

Carrying out the five-day program in village schools costs an average of $5 per child, and includes expenses for the children?s book, art supplies, certificates, surveys, the education coordinator salary and his transportation, room and board during the classes.
