In each of our seven Regions where we operate – BotswanaMalawiNamibiaRwanda, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe – our after school Eco-Club programme continues to tick over nicely. The Eco-Clubs focus on environmental education and life skills lessons. Our YES Resource Book was officially launched in the Zambezi Region, reaching high school and early school leavers, also with a focus on environmental education and life skills. Nearly 200 Eco-Mentors have been trained this year, enabling us to continue running our programme effectively throughout our Regions. Our annual fundraiser – the Nedbank Tour de Tuli – now in it’s 14th year, was hugely successful, bringing in R1.8 million for Children in the Wilderness.

We’ve had some very special moments (and a few sad ones), but we’ve decided the best way to recap our 2018, is with thirteen stunning pictures, highlighting our best moments from the year. One per month, except for August (it was an exciting one!), we hope you enjoy these as much as we did taking them! Click on each image below to read up on each month.
