The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) Community Outreach Program promotes an understanding of wildlife conservation amongst the communities living in wildlife areas within the greater Tsavo Conservation Area whilst gaining community goodwill by sustainable support of community based projects.  

In the month of June, the DSWT hosted ten (10) school trips, five (5) video shows and donated one hundred (100) Neem tree seedlings to the Kenya National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA).  

Addional to this during the last few months the DSWT has been funding the construction of three new classrooms for Kamunyu School; one of the schools located within the DSWT’s Peregrine Conservation Area, close to the Trust’s Kaluku HQ. These smart new classrooms are a huge improvement for this school, which has only ever known mud classrooms without floors, proper windows or doors.  With nearly 100 children enrolled these classrooms have been much awaited and will make a tremendous impact on every child’s learning environment whilst offering the teachers a better foundation in which to work and teach their students.
