Pack Safari sponsors busses for winning school of Clean up Challenge 2019
On 21 September this year the National Cleanup Campaign took place, simultaneously with World Cleanup Day. TOSCO and PAKO Kids Magazine, in coordination with the Ministry of Environment and Tourism and the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture, organised a cleanup challenge for Namibian schools. The participating schools had to take pictures of the situation before and after cleaning up. In total, 42 schools participated, whereby 4000 learners, volunteers and teachers collected about 5000 bags of trash.
Mountain View School in Windhoek was one of the winning schools, and was rewarded with an educational city tour through various places in Windhoek. Because at Pack Safari we find it essential to educate Namibian youth about our environment, we helped organising this day by providing 3 vehicles and drivers to drive around the students on this educational experience. On the tour the students learned from local experts about Namibian cultural heritage as well as best waste management practices through reducing, re-using and recycling. Places visited included Heroes Acre, Independence Memorial Museum, the Parliament of the Republic of Namibia, Ombombo mobile truck classroom and Penduka Women Empowerment Project.
