Connecting Classrooms is the joint project between UNICEF and Blue Ventures, which will enhance our community-based conservation programmes through innovative, technological teaching tools for the youth of coastal southwest Madagascar. By using interactive learning techniques and ‘connecting’ the students with their peers, both internationally and in Madagascar, they will learn about the natural world.
