How We Work – Education

The Snow Leopard Conservancy’s range country educational activities are centered around simple teaching tools appropriate for remote rural areas where electricity is the exception and schools function under bare-bones conditions. We work through a network of local teachers, teacher-trainers and nonprofit organizations, to develop and conduct classroom and after-school activities using the principles of Appreciative Participatory Planning and Action (APPA).

Here at home we focus on building connections between American students and those in the snow leopard range countries.
