In September 2013, AWF announced a Clinton Global Initiative commitment to build at least 15 new conservation primary schools over the next 10 years. In Africa, typically, the best schools, qualified teachers, and the majority of educational resources end up in cities and towns. The commitment by AWF upends this paradigm. We intend to build modern “campuses” that are thoughtfully conceived, designed, and constructed, and give students in rural areas of Africa access to the same—if not better—educational resources as their urban counterparts. This is AWF’s Conservation Schools (ACS) program. AWF believes the ACS program has the potential to far exceed our Clinton Global Initiative commitment, and needs a leader who can maximize its potential to deliver the greatest possible conservation and educational gains for communities living with wildlife in Africa.
