Environmental Programs Involving Children (EPIC) Kids – Outreach Program

Chipangali Wildlife Orphanage made a major commitment to conservation education in 2011 and started Epic Kids, which stands for Environmental Programs Involving Children in partnership with the Department of National Parks. Epic Kids led by staff member Nominal runs daily outreach programs to schools in Bulawayo & nearby areas that educate children about wildlife conservation. It also includes a live demo of tortoises, snakes, chameleons and hedgehogs. There is an interactive quiz after the lecture where the children get to collect animal cards. Over 350,000 children from 250 schools have attended an Epic Kids lecture till date.

In 2014 to date, Epic Kids has visited 32 schools in & around Bulawayo with 39,781 children and 892 teachers attending the lectures. In total, Epic Kids has taught 354,680 children in 248 schools about nature conservation. We also donated soccer kits to 8 schools and stationery (pens, pencils, crayons, notebooks) to 10 schools.
