Gwango Schools Initiative (GSI)

The Gwango Schools Initiative (GSI) enables students to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). We believe in the transforming power of education and the supportive role of travel philanthropy for a destination's community development. We believe that all education improves lives and encourages respect for the natural world and the use of its resources.

GSI STEM Teacher Workshops

Gwango STEM Teacher Workshops are impactful 3-day professional development, activity-based programs for teams composed of teachers from secondary schools and high schools in Zimbabwe.

Our process of training STEM teachers is customized specifically for the schools. The current goal is to develop lesson plans for local area GSI schools, to ensure that teachers at every school will be teaching STEM topics concurrently.

The goal of the GSI STEM Career Day is to inspire students to learn about STEM, get excited about STEM and pursue a STEM related career.

Along with wildlife conservation, education is the single most important aspect of Gwango's commitment to sustainability. GSI was created in partnership with local area school Head masters and community leaders.
