Chimpembele Wildlife Education Trust

Chipembele Wildlife Education Trust (CWET), Zambia is focused on the advancement of the education of children and young people in the conservation and preservation of the environment and its wildlife.  

Two years of support has been provided to employ a Zambian educator, whose primary focus will be to support the students participating in the Aspiring Conservation Leaders (ACL) programme. Suuba started her role as Youth Leadership Coordinator in August 2023.

“We are thrilled that our year-long Aspiring Conservation Leaders programme for young conservationists has received financial support from Pestalozzi. It has enabled us to bolster the programme expenses and recruit a much needed programme leader who can plan and facilitate training sessions, guide the students in their assignments and mentor them closely. Huge thanks to Pestalozzi for their encouragement and partnership in this innovative programme that is helping to create the next generation of conservation leaders in Zambia”
Anna Tolan, CWET

Congratulations to the Aspiring Conservation Leaders 2023

Six of the ten ACLs successfully completed the 2023 programme.

November saw sessions to finalise community projects as well as two weeks of career talks from various conservation industry professionals. The career talks emphasized various skills needed in conservation including physical fitness for field work, analytical approaches to field work and the ability to interpret and keep up to date with environmental legislation and guidelines.

Suuba shared, “The ACLs were able to discover new job opportunities within the conservation sector, gain career advice and increase their chances of being recommended for positions through networking.”
