Youth and Conservation in Katavi

Based in Western Tanzania, the Landscape and Conservation Mentors Organisation works with the communities around Katavi, running conservation, environment and education projects. The area of their work which particularly resonates with Nomad is VIMA - Vijana na Mazingira, which translates to Youth and the Environment. 

Their educational campaign works in schools and communities educating youth on the importance of protecting the environment and introduces practical ways these young ambassadors for nature can get involved. They run capacity-building livelihood-focused interventions to youth in these villages, using fun and engaging activities to help foster a love and respect among young children and adults for their environment. The VIMA youth ambassadors program was expended to a neighbouring village after popular demand and a request to include their young generations in the scheme, a true testament to their success.

We continue to support the different initiatives of VIMA, knowing that our help is equipping future generations with the knowledge and understanding to promote environmental protection and promotion.
