WildlifeDirect Rolls Out Team Sayari “Nature Positive Kids” Outreach Program
WildlifeDirect, a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of Africa’s wildlife, is pleased to announce the roll out of its new Nature Positive Kids Outreach Program which is an extension of the National Geographic’s Team Sayari educational entertainment Program.
Team Sayari, a collaboration between the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), The Walt Disney Company Africa and Wildlife Direct, saw a 20-part television series being aired across Africa on National Geographic Wild and Disney Channel. With a goal to inspire meaningful, impactful behavioural change in young viewers across the continent and create the next generation of environmental conservation leaders, Team Sayari now moves from the small screen and schools and communities in East Africa with the Nature Positive Outreach Kids Program.
Targeting 10,000 children aged 7-12 years old in 200 schools in Kenya, Rwanda and Tanzania, the program aims to have a lasting impact on the conservation of species-rich landscapes and generate meaningful economic development opportunities for communities.
The Nature Positive Kids Outreach Program is designed to educate and engage children and communities about the importance of protecting and conserving the natural environment. Through a series of outreach screening events, workshops, and nature based activities, the initiative aims to encourage a more sustainable and responsible approach to environmental stewardship.
