- Over a fifth of children between the ages of 6-11 are out of school, followed by a third of youth between the ages of 12-14.
- According to UNESCO Institute of Statistics data, almost 60% of youth between the ages of 15-17 are not in school.
Our scholarship program allows them to attend the best school in their area and there are eleven criteria that help us calculate the amount they receive. Kids can earn bonuses for consistently great grades and taking part in extra-curricular conservation activities.
We work directly with the sanctuaries or local authorities to distribute the funds directly to the schools.
We currently support the children of workers at Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary (Kenya), Limbe Wildlife Center (Cameroon), Ape Action Africa (Cameroon), Sanaga Yong (Cameroon), Chimp Eden (South Africa) and Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary (Uganda).
