Video: An Inspiring Example of “Future Learning”

An internationally-acclaimed programme called Coaching for Conservation (C4C) was introduced to rural schoolchildren in Mpumalanga in April 2016, at Hazyview Digital Learning Campus, a campus managed by nonprofit organisation, Good Work Foundation (GWF).

The aim of the programme, sponsored by Investec’s Rhino Lifeline, is to teach children about conservation issues as well as develop an awareness and sensitivity to the environment they live in. The programme links children with conservation awareness through sport. In Botswana, the conservation awareness has focused on wild dogs, but in South Africa, the programme introduces children to rhino poaching, which is, surprisingly, a topic that many young rural children know little about.

The rhino programme has been running predominantly in the Eastern Cape, but GWF’s Open Learning Academy programme, with its focus on English, math’s, digital literacy and conservation, was a perfect fit, and so Investec has supported an expansion into Mpumalanga.
