All life matters is an expanding animal rescue farm in the heart of Mauritius. The sanctuary requires public funds and assistance to remain viable. Our wish is to find consistent and continuous ways to help fund and beautify this refuge for abused and abandoned animals. At the same time All Life Matters will empower the local children to become compassionate leaders by investigating and undertaking various service learning initiatives. The project is to be ongoing, with a Roots and Shoots group meetings and mini-projects helping both our children, the community and the animals being rescued.
Holiday Program at All Life Matters Sanctuary.
A group of 16 to 18 children will be attending a holiday program at All Life Matters. The adult supervisor will assist the children in following the Roots and Shoots 4-step formula over a period of one week. Children will tour the facilities, be introduced to the various animals, be shown videos of Every Living Thing animal sanctuary in Dar es Salaam as well as Animal Ambulance rescue in Johannesburg. They will interview the various people working at the sanctuary, including the director, Moira. Once fully engaged they will map out the farm, observe areas that require improvement (this will also come from the various interviews on site). Children will decide on a short term remedy to complete during the holiday camp as well as long term ideas to continue supporting the animal haven following the service learning ethos of Roots and Shoots.
