First request permission from your Head Teacher, then register your school with KIDS’ TUSK FORCE UK.

Create a display board of ''Did You Know'' facts about elephants in your school - Make our beads- Design your own advertising posters - hold a fundraising sale …..If your school is small perhaps you can join forces with another. Make your families and friends aware of what is going on and how much you care about the future of elephants. Organize a presentation to your Head Teacher….Invite the School Governors….Hold a school assembly to inform all the children and teaching staff about your Bead Sale, why you are getting involved and why you want to foster an orphaned elephant. Invite your MP…invite a journalist and photographer from your local paper. Make your voices heard!

We can help you…For further information contact us …..

There is a famous old saying that ‘An elephant never forgets’……..You will never forget what you have done to help give a little elephant at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust a future.
