Sponsor up to 150 kids for a field trip to the zoo.
The majority of our kids have never left their neighborhood. A field trip to the zoo provides children with the opportunity to see a wild animal for the first time in their natural environment. This helps them understand that animals are living beings and they have certain needs to survive. This understanding fosters cognitive development and leads children to develop compassion and empathy for animals and the environment. They begin to understand the importance of protecting our environment to keep the homes of animals safe and secure and to maintain the balance of our ecosystem. A powerful Aha! moment.
