Serengeti Watch Partnership

11 March 2013

Nomad Trust is currently looking at partnering with Serengeti Watch on their STEP (Serengeti Teachers' Environmental Program) project. The aim of the project is to provide Tanzanian science teachers with an intensive three day training session focused on deepening the understanding of environmental issues and environmental protection efforts in Tanzania. In addition, participating teachers engage a student leader in the training, and are provided with a six-week instructional curriculum and material for follow-up classroom implementation.

We aim to work with 5 schools around Ololosokwan, with 10 teachers participating in the program which will include a one day Serengeti national park field experience with a Nomad guide, to learn more about how Tanzanian National Parks provide exclusive protection for endangered species. There will also be a two-day follow-up training session where teachers will receive the curriculum and materials and prepare to apply their new-found knowledge in a classroom setting.

Nomad Trust is currently fund-raising for this worthwhile project, we are looking to raise $2000 for teacher accommodation, transport and meals for the three day project, as well as printed material for the school we partner with.
