Health and Education

WCS implements an integrated health and conservation education program that aims to empower local populations to build awareness, knowledge and skills to sustain a healthy environment and assure human wellbeing. Education activities are focused around the ‘Open Classroom’ in Maroantsetra which welcomes hundreds of school children each year, and activities with teachers and students in rural schools in Makira’s green belt. Health activities include mobile clinics, family planning advice, and training of community health agents within COBAs.
