In their quest to get more schools and school children involved in the 1 000 000 Footprints to Save Africa Campaign, One More Generation, Dance to be Wild and Children4Conservation took 18 school children from around Nkomazi to tour Kruger National Park on Saturday.

This follows tireless work of getting the schools together and creating the awareness to try and reach the whole of Nkomazi for two weeks.

“We wanted this not to be formal education and leave it at that, we had to take them to see the real thing in the Park and get to realize what we are really talking about, and for them to have some fun while they are learning,’ said Velile Mabaso of Nkomazi FM, who is also the Media Liaison for the campaign organization in the area.

Although minor setbacks were experienced as this campaign was the first of its kind in the region, Velile says they hope to reach the whole of Nkomazi next time.

“We urge both the public and private sector to get involved in sponsoring such campaigns to push the awareness on endangered animals and help save them by teaching the next generation,” added the passionate Mabaso.

One of the partnered organizations was the Children4Conservation, founded by a 14-year-old Monique Theron.
