At all primary schools in Maun that participate in the Junior Ranger Programme, school gardens with vegetable beds and fruit trees are planted. In the accompanying educational units, the children learn everything about gardening: sowing seeds, the right soil, staking out beds and how to use tools for gardening.
Children and young people are regularly taught about specific environmental protection topics in educational units both at schools and in a nearby wildlife park in Maun - directly in the nature. The focus is on the head, heart and hand principle, which combines education with joy and the practical experience of community in nature.
Young adults from Botswana can apply to the Knyphausen Foundation for an educational grant that will enable them to train as professional safari guides or multipliers of the Junior Ranger program.
