As the saying goes, "the early bird catches the worm" and as such the ASSETS team has already started working on one of the crucial parts of the programme in order to make sure we get ahead of the game - the selecting of potential ASSETS beneficiaries who completed their primary level of education last year, 2011. One of the necessary tasks for this to happen is to get enough copies of the application forms for potential beneficiaries to complete - conservation is not all about exciting fieldwork! Below is a picture showing Conservation Assistant Bimbo on one of our new motorbikes yesterday (kindly donated by Eden Wildlife Trust) heading to Turtle Bay Beach Club to photocopy the ASSETS application forms for the new recruit beneficiaries of the year 2012 to join Form One.
ASSETS and A Rocha Kenya as a whole is grateful to Turtle Bay Beach Club for the long-standing support it has given us in many, many - with free photocopying being quite a significant one over the years. This gives a clear picture to show that the two organisations co-operate and have a passion for a common conservation goal and we at A Rocha Kenya are very grateful for this. Turtle Bay Beach Club is one of the most responsible tourist resorts in Kenya by a long way and we are proud to be affiliated with and supported by them.
