How it works

During the year Eco-Clubs are run at the schools, to encourage the children to continue with their education, as well as keep their love of wildlife and their heritage alive. In conjunction with the Eco-Clubs we run Eco-Mentor trainings for teachers and other Eco-Mentors. These trainings are related to the CITW Eco-Club curriculum books and equip Eco-Mentors/teachers with environmental knowledge as well teaching fun, interactive teaching methods.

A Wilderness Safaris or partner camp is closed for a few days each year, and 16-24 children between 10 and 17 years old, pre-selected from neighbouring schools and communities, are hosted in the camp. The Camp Director, with a full staff complement of volunteers and mentors, runs an educational and fun-filled programme.

Other related programmes, depending on the country and region, include school nutrition programmes, water supply, scholarships and school buildings.
