Environmental Education

Our commitment to encourage collective responsibility for the environment forms the basis of our environmental education programme.

Working through presentations, training and workshops, the programme aims to create awareness in host communities and schools of the importance of environmental protection, pollution prevention, biodiversity conservation and environmentally responsible development.

In partnership with the Groundwater Risk Management for Growth and Development (Gro for GooD) research project in Kwale and researchers from Oxford University, Base Titanium has supported the establishment of water clubs in three secondary schools to provide a platform for pupils to learn about water management through teaching and field trips.

With support from the Herpetology Section of the National Museums of Kenya, conservation of reptiles and amphibians forms a key component of the programme. A snake identification poster has been distributed to surrounding villages and Community Health Units are provided with basic snake identification and first aid treatment training for snake bites.
