SPIRITED children from Motherwell celebrated the end of Environment Month with Xhosa song and dance in a concert at the Motherwell library.

The 50 kids who belong to the Zwartkops Conservancy’s Motherwell Enviro Club said they wanted to ensure that people in their area learn about the importance of the environment.

Motherwell Enviro Club’s founder Patricia Ntaba said she collects kids from different areas in Motherwell and teaches them the importance of the environment through song and dance.

“I had to make it fun for them and not just make it only about the picking up rubbish on the streets. We also have a programme and they sing environmental songs that make them more able to understand the need,” said Ntaba.

Ntaba said they arrange a concert annually with the help of Zwartkops Conservancy and the municipality.

“Through our work at Zwartkops Conservancy, I was able to come up with this concept and I have 50 kids now who are members of this club in the Motherwell area.

“We also receive some assistance from the municipality through donation of a venue, which is great for us,” said Ntaba
