How AACEM is empowering learners to protect the place where they live

Education is key for the ensuring the long-term preservation of the environment, especially birds and their habitats. Recognising this AACEM has initiated the Amigo Ambiente – an environmental programme which focuses on issues relating to environmental issues. Few would doubt the necessity of teaching our children the importance of safeguarding our precious natural resources and looking forward towards the survival and improvement of our environment. AACEM is involved in assisting two local schools on the importance of mangrove conservation to the environment, the threats that this habitat type face and the importance of the birdlife in the area. It is hoped that these initiatives will plant a seed in the minds of the future custodians ofg Mozambique's environment.
