Our organisation is now situated in a deep rural setting and is very much isolated from city hussle n bussle.
There are several game parks within relatively short distances from us and we are 70kms from the southern border of Mozambique. These travel activities are not included in the price.

During our school holidays interaction with pre schools..schools and high schools are suspended at the places of learning..but holiday programs are initiated to ensure interaction with primary school and high school students. This is also prime time to assist these institutions with refurbishment and decoration.
Food garden installation and maintenance is a year long oppertunity.

Kwa.mama recently moved from city township setting to deep rural community. Here we support several independently run preschools... three local primary schools and one very overcrowded high school.
We aim to encourage education and our focus is on conservation.
Food gardens at three primary schools to assist their soup kitchens are part of our youth programs projects.
We also regularly do clean ups with the children of local gathering places like soccer fields and shops..
