The Children Conservationists Programme (CCP)

The Children Conservationists Programme (CCP), is a non-profit organization supported by a tour and travel company called Golden Trekkers Africa and well-wishers who aim at promoting sustainable conservation of National Parks and Wildlife Reserves by involving children and youth living within 10kms of national parks and Wildlife Reserves in Uganda and Rwanda. CCP is currently working in 6 national parks and wildlife reserves of Uganda and Rwanda. The overall aim of CCP is to raise a generation of children that love and are conscious about conserving the national parks and Wildlife Reserves around them. We need future leaders in conservation who would take the initiative in protecting the national parks wildlife reserves for the present and future generations. Through different programs, CCP mentors the children to understand the importance of conservation and its relevance to their lives. We also support children’s education through provision of scholastic materials with branded messages on conservation. CCP also targets the youth school dropouts and supports them in vocational skills that can enable them find different options for income generation instead of depending on the parks near them. CCP aspires to promote the conservation of these vital resources while at the same time putting a smile on the lives of the children that live near these natural habitats.
