We work closely with the  PACE project.  PACE (Pan African Conservation Education) was an initiative of TUSK and Siren Conservation Education, it was launched in 2004. UNAFAS CVP has used PACE resources since 2006, became a national hub in 2013 and with our partner Education and Training Africa has been coordinating PACE Africa wide since 2016.   We recommend their resources and are proud to be a central part of the PACE network
