Insimbi Legacy Project is a non-profit educational initiative aimed at educating children about conservation. Elco Steel Express Mokopane recently sponsored the learners, school governing body members and educators of Sekhwiditsane Primary School in Blouberg to a fun-filled trip to a lodge in Limpopo.

Elco’s Carmela Lattanzi, who is also a founding member of Insimbi Legacy Projects, welcomed the visitors and introduced representatives from the Alldays Wildlife and Communites Research Centre as well as Judy van Schalkwyk from the WESSA Eco Schools programme. Aligned with the international programme of the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), the programme is active in 67 countries.

After providing some information on the importance of conservation, the learners played conservation games and coloured in pictures before heading to the pool for a swim.

After lunch, a game drive treated the educators and learners to some great views of a variety of wildlife, such as giraffe, buffalo, zebra and antelope. Resident field guide Jay Bertchy fielded questions.

The day ended with a traditional dance performed by the learners in traditional dress to thank Elco Steel Express Mokopane and Insimbi Legacy Projects.

Insimbi Legacy Projects encourages companies that would like to sponsor schools in the area or get involved in any way to visit http://insimbilegacyprojects.co.za/ to find out more.
