Table Mountain is a World Heritage Site, a National Monument, and beacon of hope. Ironically, 97 percent of the youth who reside near Table Mountain have never set foot there. We at BEEP feel that in order to accomplish our mission to educate township children about the environment, we needed to bring them to the mountain so that they could develop a sense of ownership and entitlement to their national heritage. In return it is hoped the children will bring the mountain back to their communities.

BEEP supports the National School’s Curriculum and have partnered with Wildlife Environmental Society of South Africa’s (WESSA) Eco-School. In so doing we strive towards improving environmental management by initiating practical projects and campaigns that strengthen environmental education in schools with whom we work.
