Visite scolaire AAC visite AAC

Several time a week, the Association organize
 educative visit for the Congolese school of Kinshasa 
as well as conference for different associations 
(universities, academics, religious ...)

The guided and educative visits 
are completely free of charge.

With the help of pedagogic supports (book, movies, posters ...) and supervise by scientific members of the A.A.C, the visit give the opportunity to see a wild animal which is even very difficult to see and observe in his natural habitat.
The A.A.C is help be a local independent tour operator which pick up the children at school. The children come with their teacher. One or two classes together come to watch the bonobo in liberty. They can see a movie and ask question to the staff.

Those visits give us the opportunity to teach the children the importance of their environment patrimony. Their enthusiasm are our  best reward.

Drawing contests on environment themes are frequently organized between schools.
