Engage the Youth

MCG believes that learning from members of one’s own community, who really care about the well being of the community, has a great impact.

Mpop Kidz Club meets on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings to explore Mpophomeni, monitor the streams, grassland and forest and create useful items from waste.

In Mpophomeni schools the multi-skilled MCG team facilitate lessons around healthy living, renewable energy, storytelling, recycling, water, food gardening, indigenous knowledge, environmental issues, local history, animal rights, cultural use of natural resources and personal values.

In collaboration with the Owl Box Project, we are rearing orphaned Barn Owls and installing Owl Boxes in 2016. The purpose is to dispel myths and fears around owls by engaging and educating learners in the rearing and release programme. A healthy owl population will make an impact in addressing the rats that plague township gardens. For more information contact mpopowls@cowfriend.co.za
