We believe taking children hiking is a wonderful way to ignite a sense of wonder in the natural world. Without a deep connection with the earth, it is difficult to motivate children (and anyone) to care for our earth. And how can we love nature if we have never experienced it?
In honor of our 10-year anniversary, we will be highlighting 10 remarkable Earthchildren from the past and present. We present to you the third Earthchild Spotlight : Athenkosi Khulu. Athhenkosi has been a part of the Earthchild Project family since the very beginning of our journey. This young man is currently studying at college and will start his very own hiking club with the Earthchild Project in 2017. I had the honour of interviewing him last week.
