We offer FREE various activities for pre-school children where we focus on topics like plants, animals and garbage.
We offer FREE different activities about many environmental topics; we carry out the activities in two main ways:
This multi-year course is designed to educate future environmental leaders of Leon and Nicaragua. Children at the age of 9 years old can apply to participate in this course. The course consist of two weekly activities:
We trained the local school children to guide in the reserve; some of them already guiding national and foreign visitors. In this 6 months, we involved the children of the nearby community more fully (Santa Rosa de Los Parrales) with the Reserve.
The children of Santa Rosa de Los Parrales community receive sports equipment, as acknowledgement for their active participation in protecting the reserve. We thank Hamid Fazeli-Sinaki (in the middle) for his generous donation..
We prepare new materials: videos, expositions and posters about different environmental topics, for the ministry of education. At the beginning of the school year we will train teachers to use these materials. We hope that with colaboration with the Ministry of Education the environmental message will reach thousands of children in cities and rural areas at north-western Nicaragua.
At this year we plan to open an additional group in our environmental leadership course. These children will have the opportunity to acquire good environmental & English knowledge, and to be actively involved in environmental projects in Leon.
It is a new project that we will carry out in different high- schools in Leon. The project will make the schools more “environmental- friendly” and actively involve the school children in this mission.
These days we do experiments to find the best way to make solar lamps of recycled palstic bottles. Soon we will offer these lamps for the local public in Leon.
After establishing a sostainable model of FREE environmental education in Leon, we plan to spread our activities to other sites to establish similar projects. Once funds are raised, our goal is to establish a new SONATI site in the mountain rain and cloud forests of Nicaragua, and to involve local children in the conservation of this special habitat.
