'The C4C programme blends digital learning with life skills and soccer coaching to encourage young people to think about their relationship with themselves, their peers and their environment.' Ryan James, Good Work Foundation

Children visit HESC for an introduction to rhino orphans

'The children in our local community do not get the opportunity to see and experience the wildlife they live so close to, and our outreach program at HESC fetches these children to show them the animals.' Lente Roode, HESC

Seeing a rhino in the wild for the first time

'The first time these children see a wild animal, their eyes and their face light up and the excitement is incredible and we need to build on that. We need to keep them inspired and excited about animals and nature.' Kate Muir, C4C

Coaching for Conservation

Coaching for Conservation approaches teaching in a unique and fun way, through sport and adoptions of animal behaviour. Children learn about rhino, from rhino. They're encourage to use specific animal tactics and features whilst playing soccer. Kids enter the programme with very little, to no knowledge of the rhino, and leave wanting to contribute to their survival. C4C is led by a passionate conservationist, Lesley McNutt.
Coaching for Conservation is a project of the Botswana Predator Conservation Trust, MA85/2008.
