Funding approved for our Rwandan partners conservation work

We are delighted to have been successful in gaining funding from the World Orchid Congress Committee under Project Seeding in our Joint bid with partners at FAWE School Kigali for FAWE students to work on the conservation of Aerangis verdickii in Rwanda.


This stunning orchid is found as an epiphyte in woodland but the FAWE students will be working on raising it from seed as an conservation and education flagship in the capital Kigali.

Students at Mendip/Writhlington and FAWE will be working together on projects linked to the World Orchid Congress which takes place in Taiwan in March 2020 and we hope that students from the two schools will present a joint display under the banner of the Global Orchid Schools Network.
