The Khomas Environmental Education Programme (KEEP) is an interactive environmental education programme designed and implemented by GCF.
KEEP aims to inspire young Namibians to care for their environment by allowing them the opportunity to reconnect with nature through a targeted field-based EE programme.
KEEP provides a learning platform outside the classroom, in nature with the goal of inspiring experiential learning and modelling environmental and wildlife stewardship.
The programme targets primary school students in Windhoek, Namibia’s capital; in particular students from disadvantaged schools who would benefit the most from an increased awareness of environmental issues as a change in behaviour has the potential to improve their living conditions.
Specifically, the programme seeks to promote environmental learning for our future decision-makers as well as address critical environmental issues key to Namibia. Furthermore, we hope to aid in protecting the natural environment through improved understanding among Namibia’s youth.
