Physical Education is an important part of the curriculum that we offer to children who attend our on-site nursery at Wildlife Works at our Kasigau Corridor REDD+ Project. Unfortunately, too often a lack of play clothes hinders the children’s full participation, and dusty school uniforms only add to the parents’ burdens.
To increase participation in our P.E. program, Wildlife Works has decided to donate two t-shirts and a pair of shorts to each student. The clothing was manufactured at our eco-factory, where many of the students’ parents are employed. Each item is made of cotton and features the Wildlife Works’ elephant logo.
The new play clothes were received with joy and appreciation by parents, students and teachers alike! The items will not only let the children exercise and play in comfort, but will also ease the burden on parents who have had to wash extremely dusty school uniforms. By donating the clothes, Wildlife Works also hopes to extend the durability of the kids’ school uniforms, which will go a long way in reducing parent’ expenses.
As we continue to look after the needs of our community members, we wish the children a happy day. After all, all work and no play makes Jack (or Jill) a dull child!
