Tomorrow I begin my journey to Zambia to support Chipembele Wildlife Education Trust.
One of the things I love about Chipembele is that they utilize conservation education as a way of eroding poverty. As their website says, “Hundreds of children have been sponsored to school or university through Chipembele and found careers or secured jobs as a result, thus lifting them and their subsequent families out of the poverty trap and into better lives.”
I believe that creates a profound sustainable cycle, as Chipembele nurtures life not only through educating youth about the environment and protecting wildlife, but also inspires people to continue their education through in conservation.
Conservation of habitats for life on Earth is, I believe, one of our highest responsibilities as human beings with the power and capabilities we have. We can contribute to the nurturing of life, or its destruction.
Supporting Chipembele is one of the best ways I know to be contributing a good future for all creatures which call Planet Earth home.
