Giving Tuesday is a philanthropic phenomenon that has arisen through the power of social media, to harness the generosity around Thanksgiving and the start of December’s ‘season of goodwill’. If you’re also basking in the happy holidays glow, may we suggest a contribution to one of our life-changing projects? The children’s gratitude is itself the gift that keeps on giving! #GivingTuesday #InspiringPositiveAction #SustainableConservationThroughLeadershipDevelopment
Children in the Wilderness Bobirwa recently hosted children from Motlhabaneng and Lentswe Le Moriti Eco-Clubs. Every year Serolo Safari Camp in the Tuli Wilderness closes to tourists in order to sponsor two full camps (eight nights for 16 children plus 11 x Eco-Mentors, all-inclusive) for CITW Bobirwa. The children had amazing wildlife sightings, making the learning so much more exciting and fun!
Serra Cafema Front of House Manager Selma Benjamin and staff organised a local Himba community clean-up with the children. As she says, “Children are the future, and we love teaching them to keep their environment clean. It was magical to see their enthusiasm and the effort they put in”. #Namibia #Kunene
Our latest newsletter is out, rounding up our most uplifting news of recent times. Don't miss it! Especially catching up with our wonderful Lesh Moiteela, who fulfils multiple roles, including CITW Botswana Programme Coordinator, as well Cultural Ambassador and Community Relationship Manager for Wilderness Safaris Botswana.
Children in the Wilderness' Regional Programme Manager Janet Wilkinson spent last week visiting the schools in their Malawi programme. "I was particularly struck by the humility and impressive work ethic of our scholarship students; but perhaps more poignant is the prospect of 500 schoolgirls learning computer science with access to just six computers. Any computer donations would be most gratefully received!" See all Janet's evocative images in the album on our blog.
