About OWR
Created in 1992, the OWR, at more than 13,000km2, is the single largest protected tract of intact lowland tropical forest remaining in the DRC. The OWR harbors one of the largest remaining population of forest elephants and the largest stronghold of okapi in the DRC and the single largest population of the eastern chimpanzee in Africa. The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) has been active in the OWR for more than 30 years, supporting its creation, and subsequently working closely with ICCN (Institut Congolaise pour la Conservation de la Nature) – the government agency responsible for protected areas and wildlife - in its management. In December 2018, WCS and ICCN signed a 10-year management agreement that delegated management authority of the OWR to WCS. This mandate is implemented through the OWR Management Unit (RMU), led by the Reserve Director, that is the executive body in charge of all day-to-day management activities and personnel in the OWR.
OWR is situated in the larger Ituri landscape; comprising more than 40,000km2 of contiguous forests, in which WCS is actively building conservation constituencies and supporting sustainable agricultural practices amongst the local communities who depend upon the forest resources for their livelihoods, and on whom the future integrity of the OWR is inextricably linked. The Ituri forests also have a rich cultural heritage and are home to the indigenous Mbuti and Efé peoples.

De leerlingen krijgen drie uur per week les; de kleuters twee. Doordat de groepen kinderen hebben van verschillende niveaus is gedifferentieerd werken zeer belangrijk. De lessen vinden plaats in de middagen van maandag tot en met vrijdag. Naast de reguliere lessen hebben we minimaal vier keer per jaar een cultuurmiddag voor de hele school. Deze cultuurmiddagen maken deel uit van het lesprogramma en vinden gewoonlijk plaats op vrijdag of in het weekend.
Naast het lesgeven, is de directeur/leerkracht verantwoordelijk voor de leiding van de school. Afhankelijk van het aantal leerlingen, heeft hij/zij naar verwachting een werkweek van ongeveer 18 uur. Tevens bestaat er een mogelijkheid privélessen te verzorgen voor buitenlanders die (tijdelijk) in Nederland gaan wonen.

Zimbabwe is een dunbevolkt en groot land waar veel moois te zien is zoals de Victoria Falls en vele wildparken. De hoofdstad Harare heeft 2 miljoen inwoners. De stad beschikt over goede gezondheidszorg en scholing en heeft een variëteit aan winkels, restaurants en andere uitgaansmogelijkheden.
