Nature for Kids uses Entertainment to create environmental awareness among children growing up in underdeveloped countries where people depend heavily upon their natural surroundings . The NFK edutainment programs transmit the basic knowledge and values that will enable both young people and the place where they live, to prosper.
We produce exciting, 20- minute-long screenplays (film/radio) featuring local schoolchildren and their parents, narrated in their native language. A tailormade program with accompanying interactive teaching material, tackling important environmental issues such as overgrazing, water and waste management, resource efficiency, deforestation, endangered species and more. Our programs are produced with the help of â€“ and star â€“ a local cast and crew.
To date eight films have been produced in Tanzania, Uganda and Botswana, Africa. Since 2006 mobile School team from NfK and/or local partner organisations have visited hundreds of schools, enabling many children to view and benefit from the NfK program. All films/programs and educational resource packs are produced in the native/local language, whether Swahili, English, French or Rutooro and can easily be dubbed in more languages.
This interactive and innovative approach to environmental learning is fun and universal in appeal. NfKâ€™s mission is to create more programs on new urgent conservation issues and to roll out the exisiting materials and programs to other locations and countries with local partners.
