Educating the children – Flickr pic of the day
As part of Responsible Tourism Week, a global initiative from February 14 to 18, 2011, we’ll be highlighting images that show people taking responsibility for their communities and the places they live in and visit. You can get involved by logging onto the global journal of practical ecotourism, Planeta.com‘s wiki and registering.
Travis says, “This photo was taken at a school in the townships. I went with a Cape Town non-governmental organisation called Earthchild Project to this school where they taught the kids how to grow vegetables, practice yoga and create compost by breeding worms. This photo was taken with a Nikon D90 while the kids were in the veggie patch.”

As part of Responsible Tourism Week, we’re calling on Capetonians to submit their photographs of ordinary people doing extraordinary things – in the name of creating better places for people to live in, and better places to visit – to our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
