About YARH - Young Animal Rescue Heroes- Creating Awareness for Endangered Wildlife starting Locally in Kenya


Y.A.R.H. was conceived and started by Luca Berardi, then 8 years old. Since he was small, Luca’s only topic has been animals. The idea of saving endangered animals has been developing over time. Young Animal Rescue Heroes invites children from all over the world to be part of this initiative and work together to save our endangered animals in every region of the world. Strategy and Implementation Starting locally in Kenya. Specifically Y.A.R.H. intends to: - Network with other children in creating awareness - Increased awareness-raising with the public at large through: Public Speeches,Animal-themed competitions (drawing and writing),celebrating animals through children’s fun days and music, Educating communities about the importance of conservation,Working with people around parks and government agencies on training animal-rescuers, working to reduce threats that lead to the endangering of habitats -Fund-raising towards the above-listed activities Yarh is currently collecting waste paper and sending it to Chandaria Industries for recycling. By recycling paper we save trees and energy and in return wildlife benefits from this saved habitat see the recycling project here
(If you would like to partner with Chandaria Industries on any waste paper projects please get in touch with them by email on info@chandaria.com or call us on +254 722 225 999 / 733 872 828) Every effort is welcome in making Kenya Green!
We are also working on a waste management project for schools which include dustbins to schools. Luca, 11 years spends most of his free time reading wildlife related books and websites like the IUCN red list, researching on wikipedia, drawing and writing books on animals and movie scripts for his animal ideas. You can support the work of YARH by giving your waste paper to Chandaria for Recycling, organise awareness days with us, send books to schools. We are looking for new ideas to make this project interesting and bring change amongst children on environment and wildlife conservation.
