Assistant Conservation Education Officer
Rose Lempate is the newest member to join the Education team. After finishing her primary school education, Rose was among the lucky students to secure the Save the Elephants scholarship opportunity. This gave her a chance to continue with her post primary school education which at that time seemed almost impossible. Rose later joined Limuru Girls’ School for her secondary school education and attained a B plain grade in the KCSE National exams. In 2011, she joined Kenyatta University for her Undergraduate degree and pursued a Bachelor of Science Degree in Environmental Education and graduated with a Second Class Honors (Upper Division). In 2017, Save the Elephants managed to secure a place for Rose at Giraffe center where she interned for five months and was able to learn some techniques in the art of briquette making and was also able to develop good communication skills and got a chance to interact with the many people she met there.
I am currently working with Save the Elephants as an Assistant Education Officer. This opportunity is special to me for it gives me a chance to give back to the same organization which supported me to make a new start in life through education and also to serve the community at large in an effort to encourage them to conserve the environment and work hand in hand with STE in order to secure a future for elephants. The Conservation Education Curriculum and the Mobile Education Unit activities that we are mostly involved in in the field; gives the young generation a chance to attain knowledge and awareness about the elephants and the current state of the environment, equip them with the necessary skills to solve environmental problems, help them develop a positive attitude towards the environment and encourage them to participate in activities that will bring a desireable impact to the environment.
