An update on CITW’s YES Clubs

The Nanthomba and Ntapwa YES Clubs belonging to the Liwonde zone, recently held a joint meeting at the Nangondo Primary School center. The main objective of this meeting was to develop the two YES clubs’ joint programmes and activities, as well as discussing the reintroduction of lions to Liwonde National Park and encouraging the young YES Club members to share their ideas and experiences.

The eco – teachers from two YES Clubs also came together to discuss a range of activities and ways that could be employed to support and further improve the YES CLUB programme. The discussions that were held included combining the two YES clubs and planning its collective opening event in the coming months.

Coinciding with the YES Club meetings in Liwonde, was a visit from Karen Beddow, an award winning travel blogger, and her family, who were staying at Mvuu Camp in Liwonde National Park. During their stay, the three Beddow kids actively participated in various activities, including tree planting, sports and storytelling, together with the YES Club children.

Meanwhile, the Chihame YES Club from Chintheche, northern zone, focused on the lack of awareness of litter and other waste materials that are polluting their environment. Whilst observing the health threats that are accumulating within the town, the youth also spread awareness to the public by conducting two campaigns at two different locations. During the two awareness campaigns, the YES Club members focused on educating the neighboring communities on the environmental hazards that can result from the poor management and disposal of waste materials, as well as the measures that they can be taken to minimize waste and pollution.
