Education

Sebastian has conducted training sessions for local residents around Moshi, as well as with students at local schools. By organizing the children in sports clubs, such as for soccer, he engages their interest while conveying valuable information about conservation issues.

If in time he had materials for teaching such as basic stationary supplies and ultimately a VCR, he would be able to maintain such efforts as well as expand them to a larger area surrounding Moshi. Education about the importance of Mpingo and the need to conserve and replenish it is vital to the long term success of a community-based project such as the ABCP.
