Roots and Shoots Lwiro - World Ocean Day!

On the 12th of June our Roots & Shoots club of Lwiro met again to celebrate World Ocean Day. As we are nowhere near an ocean here, but are very close to Lake Kivu we taught the children the differences between lakes and oceans. We also talked about why the lake is so important to the children, their families and the animals who live there and what we can do to keep the lake healthy for everyone to enjoy!

Turning a corner....

We are literally turning another corner – well covering another with the wire mesh! I know all the pictures we post of the fence may seem the same, but every new roll of mesh we unwrap feels like another giant hurdle we are jumping! Still have a few stages to go, but we feel like we are finally seeing this project turn into the “Chimpanzee Habitat” that we can imagine!
