Children in the Wilderness is an environmental and life skills educational programme that focuses on the next generation of rural decision makers. It is one of the few programmes aimed at bridging the divide that exists between communities and wildlife.
Children in the Wilderness hosts rural children that live alongside our Parks and Reserves and teaches them the importance of conservation. The Children in the Wilderness programme aims to develop environmental leaders who are inspired to care for their natural heritage so that they become the custodians of these areas in the future.
Children in the Wilderness exposes children to their wildlife heritage, builds and strengthens their capabilities to cope with life's challenges and educates them with the life skills necessary to actualize their greatest potential.
CITW always needs funds to finance camps for the kids as well as the vital follow up programme that ensures the programme has a lasting impact on the children. The bonus for American (and even more so for foreign donors from the UK or Europe) is that while your donation may seem small on that side of the ocean, over here, thanks to our unfavourable exchange rate, it turns into a lot more money! (for example if you donate US$ 10 over there, here it turns into around 100 Namibian Dollars)
