Over the years, Green Kids Club has been working with schools across the United States, as well as around the world. Our activities include everything from visiting classrooms to providing books and learning tools to grade level children, as well as sponsoring Environmental Clubs.
Belize. On a visit to Belize, we visited the Holy Cross Anglican School where we met with classes from Kindergarten and 2nd grade. We read to each classroom and gave a book and a small clip-on to each child. The kids learned about different animal issues around the world and also told us some about their environmental concerns and how they were working to make a difference. I was pleased to hear how many of them worked to help pick up trash and to get their families to help as well!
Botswana. We also met the Environment Club in Kasane, Botswana. It was really great to hear how the children have their own Club where they have a Minister of the Environment and Assistant. They meet on a weekly basis and work on projects to help promote environmental stewardship. The children discussed the various wildlife that they have in their backyards – such as the African elephants, lions, and warthogs. They had a discussion on how their families deal with them when they show up! Quite educational for me. Green Kids is pleased to say that we are now a sponsor of the schools in the Chobe School District (14) for the Association of Environmental Clubs. We are thrilled to be helping here!
Other Schools. We have worked with a number of schools here in the US, including schools in New York, Idaho, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, as some examples. We also get periodic requests from places we don’t expect, like Pakistan and Nairobi.

For the last several years, Green Kids Club has been promoting educational materials and story lines with Elephants Without Borders (EWB).
Education. Our initiatives have been bringing books and toys to the children of the Kasane, Botswana area by working with their Environmental Clubs and schools in the area. We also were able to participate in the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos. It was amazing walking down the street of Kasane, looking right next to you, and seeing Elephants walking with you – a truly amazing experience.
Collaboration with Children’s Books. We were also fortunate enough to write a children’s book called, “The African Bush Fire and the Elephant,” for the children of Botswana. The book was written to sensitize children to the threat of wildfires, to touch upon poaching, and to foster a positive message about living with wildlife. The book was co-authored by EWB Program Manager, Kelly Landen. The book was also translated into the Setswana language by Mwezi from the Kavimba village in the Chobe Enclave.
With permission and assistance from the Dept. of Forestry & Range Resources (DFRR) under the Ministry of Environment, hundreds of copies of the book were donated and distributed throughout the country to schools, environmental clubs, and DFRR.
Hands on Support. Another area we were able to participate in was working hands-on with EWB at their Research Station. In the Fall of 2017, we were able to meet a small baby elephant called Moleleo, who had been rescued by EWB. The baby elephant had been rescued from a bush fire and was severely dehydrated and burned on the bottom of his feet and across his body. Helping as much as we could with Moleleo was an honor and privilege. Moleleo is doing well and has since been moved to the EWB Elephant Orphanage in Kasane and has two new friends who have also come to the facility. So you will be seeing a new book coming out soon – The story of Moleleo or Moleleo the Fire Elephant.
Learn about protecting the environment and animal habitats with the Green Kids Club app! Packed with fun and educational books, games, puzzles, and activities - this app will get your kids excited about going green!
Green Kids Club is designed to teach young children the importance of environmental stewardship through picture books. The series was developed as a utility to teach children the importance of protecting habitats to sustain ecosystems, animal life and ultimately human life. Difficult environmental issues that impact animals and human interaction are brought into the story lines. Examples include habitat encroachment, poaching, extinction.
Victor and Maya are the leaders of the Green Kids Club. They received the power to talk to animals by drinking from the magic spring (The Green Spring book). The Grand Council of animals selected Victor and Maya to help preserve and protect their homes. Green Kids from all over the world are selected to help Victor and Maya teach others about the importance of protecting animals and their homes. Their adventures take them all over the world, exploring new cultures and learning about protecting and preserving the environment and the animals that depend on them.
