Ewaso Lions has recently joined hands with Lpus Leluai Primary School in West Gate Community Conservancy. To increase awareness of the importance of lion conservation, we are working with students and teachers at the school. Students are requested to write and/or illustrate stories about lions in English/Swahili/Samburu. The best stories and artwork will be put together and printed in the form of a booklet. These copies will be distributed locally and internationally to increase awareness of lions. Using these Simba Stories booklets, funds will also be raised for the school’s educational needs.
All art material has been donated by Shalini Bhalla of SB Management. Lindsay Morency, from Canada, has sponsored editing of the Simba Stories booklet and the Panthera Foundation has sponsored production and printing of some of the booklets.
The students have already begun working on their artwork and have produced some great drawings. Some of them had never painted before until they received boxes of paints and brushes.
