From little things, big things grow: Canada’s ChariTree Foundation creates and supports national and international children’s environmental education programs.
“Let’s give kids opportunities to fall in love with nature in order to protect it ~ because you protect what you love,” says Andrea Koehle Jones, founder and executive director of The ChariTree Foundation. “These days many children have less time and fewer opportunities to connect with nature. This is a real loss because research shows that contact with nature makes kids feel better about themselves.”
Millions of children around the world are already affected by climate change. The ChariTree Foundation
supports children’s and teen school and summer camp environmental education programs across Canada and around the globe. It’s about getting kids outside more ~ and giving them opportunities to learn, connect with nature and contribute positively to their ever-changing world.
The ChariTree Foundation has partnered with CPAR to help support and grow our important Green School Network
and environmental education programs in Malawi. With CPAR’s expertise and reach, The ChariTree Foundation is able to help educate and empower kids and youth about tree planting, food, water, soil sustainability and help them gain practical skills to be better prepared for the impacts of climate change as well as challenges of daily life in Malawi.
