This #GivingTuesday, you can support the next generation of Kenyan conservationists by contributing to the Fran Duthie African Elephant Conservation Scholarship distributed by Mara Elephant Project (MEP).
Your support will help grow the fund to create more opportunities for students pursuing a degree in a conservation related field. Students like Janeth Jepkemboi, the first recipient of the scholarship says, “My continued studies in environmental science have furthered my passion for conservation. This scholarship is an opportunity for me to gain skills that I will use to put my passion to action at a Kenyan conservation organization. This type of opportunity is the best way for me to influence policy that safeguards livelihoods while still protecting biodiversity.” The scholarship also supports building Janeth’s field experience and resume through an internship at MEP.
Give to help young Kenyans like Janeth gain the education and experience they need to find solutions that benefit both people and wildlife. The future of our planet depends on it!
