Many of the boys in Luis village don’t go to school. They poach instead.
“By killing animals, they are committing crimes that will make Mozambique poorer", says Luis. "But these boys’ rights are also being violated when their parents encourage them to poach instead of going to school. It is every child’s right to be able to go to school”. Luis lives near Limpopo National Park in Mozambique. He is one of 100,000 children – a whole generation– in and around a national park in Zimbabwe and Mozambique are being educated through the Peace & Changemaker Generation project, as changemakers who can take a stand against wildlife crime, and for girl’s rights in their communities. The project is a partnership between the World’s Children’s Prize Foundation and Peace Parks Foundation.
