Across Scotland, nearly 140 projects are lucky enough to receive Lottery funding worth over £1m.
And Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots SYLVAE project in Scotland is one of them, with its inspiring projects aimed at involving young people who come from challenging social, physical and economic backgrounds.
The SYLVAE project aims to improve the awareness, self-confidence and social entrepreneurship of these youngsters with additional support needs who are based in the Highlands.
The grant, amongst other projects will fund a new woodland area.
