Children in the Wilderness has been operating in Botswana since the inception of our programme in 2001. CITW Botswana runs eight Eco-Clubs in the north of the country around the Okavango Delta and Maun.
Thanks to the extraordinary funds raised by the annual Nedbank Tour de Tuli mountain bike event, which takes place in the Greater Mapungubwe Transfrontier Conservation Area (GMTFCA), CITW is able to run our life-changing programme in villages in Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe surrounding the GMTFCA. As such, we also have six Eco-Clubs in the Bobirwa sub-district which with we work.
Our newest addition to the CITW Botswana Family, is a ‘city school’ in Gaborone.
